    Well....I did it!

    Over the last two weeks I completely changed my bass rig....everything I own bass wise is different now. The main reason was to get smaller and less powerful since I don't need volume anymore. I also viewed this as an opportunity to try out new gear.

    I finally stepped away from my Eden security blanket. Not a single thing wrong with Eden, just time for me to expand my horizons and see what else is out there. I never felt like I had much to add as far as experience with other brands. So, I forced myself out of a couple Eden deals to get something else. I will end up with Eden gear again in a few months, but I now have time to experiment. The Metro is gone, the Spector is for sale.....here is what the Metro turned in to:

    Fender MIA Jazz from the Dudepit
    Genz Benz GBE200 from Jorg Schroeder
    Avatar SB112 from swingmaster

    The GB and the Avatar are shipping out this week. I have the Fender. Life is new and different for me as far as bass gear goes. I almost feel like a newbie all over again. While I will dearly miss my trusty Metro, I am excited to see what the new gear brings me. Any opinions or suggestions?

    IME the genz benz stuff is surprisingly good. I think you'll be happy with it. And it's hard to go wrong with a good Jazz bass. Have fun.
