Heres the new (old) baby !! Ok, so that doesnt make sense so let me explain !! I had an Urge 1 once and I sold it (please dont ask it hurts too much !!). I never, ever found anything quite like it so I always hankered after another one. Anyway, time marches on and all that, so I finally started my search for another. After a Google search one afternoon, I found this on eBay. But not eBay.co.uk but eBay.com The seller didnt want any international bids as he didnt want to have to deal with the possibility of return, which is fair enough. I wrote to him anyway, saying that I had one of these before, so I knew exactly what it was etc. After a discussion about delivery costs and so on I bought the bass from him and got it a couple of days ago. Its a beautiful bass as you can see and I couldnt be happier .The new strap to go with this bass is by Levy's and was chosen by my better half, Jennifer !! But how about this. 10 years ago this month, I wrote into a UK magazine (now defunct) called Bassist and submitted a piece for their My bass is feature. The bass I wrote about yup my Urge 1. A very generous fellow bass player has given me his copy. So I now have the bass and my journalistic masterpiece. All I need now is issues (or copies) of the pieces which Bass Player ran detailing the design and production of the Urge 1. Has anybody got any issues from 95 - 96 ?? !!
