Hey everybody, thanks for your input on my previous thread. I ended up getting this rig from my local music shop (it was consigned) for $700 all said. Here's a pic: http://wwwcsif.cs.ucdavis.edu/~liuke/photos/6-09-03/bass_rig1.jpg The music shop owner tells me that everything was custom. I'm not sure what is custom about it (besides the small "custom" stickers on the backs of the cabs) but at $700, it was sounding sweet and I had to jump. I have had no experience with Genz Benz but I hope this serves me well.. it sounds sweet on its own. Gig on Friday... we'll see!
