    cool. id assume you will really like it, geoffs has a ton of cool bite which it seems you like a lot of in your tone due to the really low tuning. this 650B has even more than id like, we were surprised that it was brighter than the EGC, but ive been rolling the tone on the neck almost all the way off (think ive been keeping it at 2).

    only thing id like to hear is theres a really cool harmonic overtone you get due to the aluminum, havent really heard it blended with a lot of fuzz yet or on recording so i wonder how that translates. almost sounds like a bell behind your bass notes, which is cool soloed out, but id like to hear it on a record.

    *Sigh* I wish.

    I've been wanting a white Rickenbacker for the doom stuff for a while now. Just can't afford it, though.

    Ryan's OSD is by far the best bassdrive/distortion (whatever) pedal I know!
     
  7. Exactly.

    I just dont understand the scorn for those that try to understand the whys and hows of how a piece of gear works.

    Glad to see the white box on there. I figured you would have tossed it by now.
     
  9. I will agree with that unequivocally.

    The scorn is not for those who try to understand. It is for those who assume that just because something makes complete sense to them and was the perfect solution for them then everyone else must want to hear about it and if they don't respond in the "appropriate" manner then they are not enlightened and willfully ignorant.

    I'm pretty sure people selling Jesus door to door can't understand why someone may not want to hear the word of Christ. Why would they not want to hear about how he died on the cross for their sins? Maybe they should carry a pie chart?

    Full disclosure: I would play the **** out of a dually. But it is just a tool. Lots of things would do the job.

    Oh look, old crow whined about fearful cabs again and now there's stupid arguing for multiple pages. Let me know when it's over.

    So...you want people to admire your cab and tell you how great it us but you don't want to engage dissenting opinions?

    If it weren't for constantly reminding us how awesome it was then we wouldn't really have anything to discuss.

    I love and respect everyone in this thread but I find it silly the way we treat this subject. This is the internet. It is a free exchange of ideas and opinions.

    I've been saving for a Ric, I like white, and I seem to have been pooling gear from 1976... I'm definitely interested, especially once I get taxes out of the way. Hopefully we can make something happen. Feel free to PM me what your thinking / looking to get out of it.

    LOL. Point out where I ever wanted people to admire my cab and tell me how great it is? Engaging in dissenting opinions is fine, but that's not what is taking place here.

    Congrats man. Anodized titanium finish is the mirror-like polish finish, correct? I like color too much to not go color, but those look incredible. Been hearing back from Kevin a lot more the last few days, my bass is almost finished. Hoping that it ships out today or sometime very soon.

    Then what is happening here?
     
  17. So is that like a premade treble cut board you buy or did you make it?
     
  18. Nothing like the joy of messing with a stuck shVtter. And I did the Florida thing for 4 years, anytime you are outside in Florida, not just going from place to place, you load up on the sunblock, you will burn faster than you can blink your eyes down there.

    Something about this makes me chuckle. Instead of pamphlets,"response graphs." I might let some of those people in my house just for the novelty of it.
