    Check out the stickies at the top of the forums. You will find tons of information there. And welcome to the dark side. May you never go back! :D

    Hah! Used to be that the electric was considered the dark side. But now I consider playing music of any kind for a living as the dark side.

    Dustklose, I'm like you...I've rented out uprights a few times in the past but never owned one until a month ago. I'm having a ball...I hardly ever touch my electrics except at gigs anymore. I highly recommend it if you need an energy recharge.
