    Hi guys and galls

    Another new face enters the room.

    I'm looking forward to hanging out around these boards!

    A little bit about me? I'm 30 and live in Belgium in a town near Antwerp.

    Been playing the bass for about 10 years now. Actually, I don't really remember the date I first picked up a bass :p

    Started out with a Sunn Mustang :p After a few years I got rid of it and bought myself a 4 string Bass Collection, which I thought was a pretty good guitar. Bought myself a 5 string version a couple years later, which I'm still love and so I'm still using it now. Anybody now what happened to the brand 'Bass Collection' anyway? Are they out of business or something? I can't seem to find anything on them.

    Anyway, these last few weeks I'm looking to buy myself a second bass, which would be a semi-accoustic. I've got my eye on the Washburn AB45.

    I'll see you around!

    Hi there I also just entered this forum.

    I'm 39 and used to live in Kontich too, moved a couple of years back to Sinaai near Sint-Niklaas.

    I've only been playing for a year and a half but I'm completely stuck on Bass ;-)

    I play a Cort 4 string which I really like.

    Cheers!

    Another one from Belgium here! I live in Lier near Antwerp, I've also been playing for 1,5 years now and also saving up for a new bass. I was also thinking semi-hollow, something like the ibanez AGB140.

    Wow guys, my home away from home. Maybe I'll run into some of you next time I'm in Kappellen, or Antwerp, or Ghent, or wherever. Who knows. Keep playing, and welcome to the board.

    Too cool! I am 'fan' of K's Choice, there are some nice basslines you did there man. Not so much a fan of Sarah Bettens solo though (nor Woodface), is there no hope for a reunion sometime?

    As this was a reaction to a post that's now deleted, I thought it best to edit this as well.
