After months of budgeting frustration and many "almost" situations that end up sending bass money to other needs, I've finally done the deed. My very first bass its on its way home! Thanks to Beaver, K.C., and the awesome folks at Bass Central, a brand new MTD Kingston 5'er (Active, Trans Red, Rosewood FB) as well as other accessories in a sweet deal shall soon be in my clutches! I've also manage to snatch up a Korg Pandora PX4B from ebay, and that's on its way too. HAPPY DAY!
