Hi-- first post. Been lurking for years though. This is my #1 place to read up on bass equipment, so many thanks for that. Hope to be contributing much more as time goes on. That being said, I hope this post isn't frowned on here as a first post... just looking for some quick advice without the BS bashing that people often do. Sadly, I have a current situation that is forcing me to offer up my Pedulla Thunderbolt 5-string. Got it up in the SoCal craigs ads, now just want to reach out to some more serious bass players. I was actually unable to post in the TB classifieds just now... so, what's a guy need to do before being granted access to that part of the forum??? (and for the love of all that is GOOD... please just wait for the ad... I don't need 50 PM's about it before the ad gets up... matter of fact I WILL IGNORE ALL PM'S UNTIL AFTER THE AD IS UP, and then I will start taking post-ad PM's in order as they come... I think this is only fair to the entire forum). I just need to know what I must do before I can post in the classifieds. Need to make sure I'm doing this right, and would like to be able to access that. Any and all help is appreciated, thanks guys.
