    I apologize if this has already been discused, but is The Bass Company (TBC) gone or out of business? A google search found nothing, and all links connected to their site just showed up as an ERROR.

    Anyone have any info as to what happened?

    I did a search and came up with....."thebasscompany.com has expired on 4-5-2010 and is pending renewal or deletion". Sounds like their domain name expired......never heard of that happening before. They could be out of business.

    Been quite a few threads mentioning them lately (search "TBC"). I briefly looked through them, but didn't find any references to them closing up shop.

    I went to thebasscompany.com and up came a page with a Network Solutions logo on the top and right under that was the sentence I typed above.

    No, they are not gone. Jack Wilson's had to take a hiatus due to some health problems, but he is chomping at the bit to get back in the shop. I spoke to him last a couple of weeks ago.

    If they come back up, I'll save up for a P/J. Does anyone have a PJ by them?

    Quite possibly. The site is back up now, though.
