Hi...I'm new here. I'm a fan of Ampeg amps and Epiphone basses. I like to buy cheap basses, gut them, and turn them into something useful. I guess that's kinda my hobby (modding guitars and basses). I freelance as a recording engineer and run sound/do post production for a local tv show, which I use as extra $$$ to fund my bass modification projects. I guess that's about the long and short of it.
