    A friend of mine who plays guitar in my band has that bass's twin, I borrow it from time to time when I don't have my own basses, and it rocks for sure. Its a classic look and a great playing and sounding bass. Congrats!

    Actually, you can't go wrong with the basscentre. Those guys make it possible for victorians to own some awesome basses that are actually very comparable to the US prices. My teacher - Tass Petridis - knows Guy well, and Tass was telling me that the basscentre's aim is to sell at a lower profit to have a higher turnover. This lets them achieve their ultimate aim, an always changing inventory.

    every couple of weeks Guy has something new.

    I can't wait to start my new part time job tomorrow so i can do some spending at the bass centre!!! :rolleyes:

    BTW, that's one hot bass Alistair. :bassist:
  8. Nice! Enjoy it mate, looks like the sort of thing that would be very easily enjoyed indeed!!
  9. Guy has been so great to me. Words cannot express how much i am greatful. Those guys really do know what customer service is. And yes, i have to agree with you ras these guys do stand up to US prices. Guy knocks off like 20 - 30% off anything thats over $1500 or so you buy from him...

    My dad calls the bass centre 'South Melbourne Baby Sitting Service' Guy puts up with me for many hours on end while dad heads into the city.

    We should have a GTG at the bass centre one day ras!
