I'd like to report an underhanded, ( as Don Z says concerning German Bass Bows) tasteless move by Bob Gollihur. I'd call this nothing less than a Political Pay-off! After talking up Bob's great $150 (or so) Brazilwood bows, (see ' Another Gollihur kudo 'under the Bows and Rosin' Forum heading) I suggested him sending me a little something for my time. In a post, he asks if i'm "still on Welch St.?" I, of course said " No Bob, I was just kidding...please don't do that. I did happen to mention something about him sending me a new 5 string bass to "take the place of that old one I have" as another poster put it. Well, I open my door this afternoon to find a box on my front porch from Gollihur Music. And inside? A coffee mug with the GollihurBASS logo on it and saying: Life is too short for bad tone., as well as one of them Gollihur BASS decals! Can you believe this? No 5 stringer!! A mug and a decal! What nerve! To make matters worse, he includes a note saying: Find enclosed a five string bass mug. Of course i'm kidding....I had to let you guys know that we can all depend on Bob's great service and a little class once in a while to boot! Thanks Bob!
