No G-K ad in new Bass Player issue

    I just got the new June 2003 issue of Bass Player mag and noticed an SWR ad on the back cover instead of the long-running string of G-K ads on the back. None are inside between the covers.

    My copy of the May 2003 issue never arrived in my mail box, so I don't know if the G-K ad was there last month. This is the 3rd time since my subscription that I have missed an issue, but that's a topic for a different thread.

    I know ads are a business decision, but this bums me. Anyone else feel this way?

    Companies are more likely to run ads when their products are featured elsewhere in the mag.

    Dude, if you go on the Bass Player website, theres a spot to put in if you missed an issue. you put in the issue(s) you've missed, and some mailing code thats on all the other BP's that you have recieved. This happend to me once, and i put in the stuff and it came within 3 days. but yeah, i noticed the no G-K ad and that suprised me. maybe SWR is taking over BP.

    Yep.....I'm still using an MB-1 preamp. Nice to have 128 presets available at the tap of my toe.

    In case you ever wondered why they just disappeared so quick, they didn't go under from lack of business - their factory burned down.:(

    Myeh...Ibanez ads are much more entertaining when you want to "rock out."

    I saw that Guitar World has a new mag called "Bass Guitar" are you advertising in that one?
  12. Bass Player has been down hill for a while now. I have not renewed my subscription. Maybe they are just running out of new topics or players to write about. I also think that they need a new editor as well.
  13. Yep, but her tattoos are a turn off IMHO
  14. Who is Greta B?

    I've never read Bass player.

    Greta? Are you guys for real? Ugly as a dog, and talentless to boot.

    I belive she called slap "Wackta wackita white boy funk".
  19. We could have Greta B running through an auditorium of brainwashed zombies and throwing a bass through a big TV screen. Our new slogan could be "Sound Different"
  20. Now now. No need to get defensive;)
