    I'm not in the financial position to order-and pay-for some $$ item on spec(there's a particular bass I'm interested in-that won't be available 'til ~Nov.). I'll wait.

    Totally understand. I’ve never tried that method either. So looking at a bass, huh? Which P is it? ;)

    Once a G man, always a G man (or E man, they are all the same)! Trying to figure out what you hate more, Fender or Peavey? :laugh::laugh:

    I really don't 'hate' 7ender, they're uncomfortable to play. AFA P______, I hate their business practices. The ones I own were from b4 they became(censored term meaning jerks).
    Don't 'hate' 'Pegs either. They aren't what I want. I've had 2, won't have another('less someone wants to give me one).

    Ah ha, it’s not tone you don’t like, it’s the cost. So if G’Dog buys you a brand new Rocket Bass 210 this weekend , you’d be okay with it? (and you probably would too). Interesting.



    Mm

    :laugh: No, it is the tone, but I'd take a free amp. Keep it as a backup in case something should happen to my good amp.:smug:

    You compare it blindfolded to your 200 and wonder how Swink crept in your listening room and threw a wooly blanket over the Rumble! ;)

    Regarding GCs all being empty...I'm sure most know about this, but post C19 even the supply chain issues have supply chain issues. Everything from cars to consumer goods are scarce. Shipping container costs tripling because they're all sitting at the wrong ports, the ports themselves causing 7-10 day delays, chips not available, lumber prices spiking, and a whole lot more. Massive cascade effect throughout almost every industry. Just in time manufacturing is basically screwed for the next year.

    I feel lucky I managed to get the bass related gear I wanted this past year in the used market mostly. As a late starter and not a talented pro or advanced player like many here, I'm happy I'll be able to get some in person lessons soon if I can make the time.

    Well said, Pro. I think many of us have taken for granted that whatever I desired would be there when I wanted it, The ‘Rona has shown us differently. We can only hope that in the next year, as you lamented, we dan begin to get favorite to a more normal rhythm and that even a GC can stock their shelves with merch again. Good points.
     
  13. you HAVE to say it that way. Ex-Navy boss I have now (MD Chief of Urgent Care at our small federal clinic:woot:) can REALLY string ‘em together!!!

    I see what you’re doing here! Can’t wait to see it when (if) you get it!! :bassist::bassist:
    I really like my Epi EB-3L- that mudbucker really delivers!!

    I liked the sound-and feel-of my Epi EB-3L. What I didn't like was the neckdive. Much more severe than my Thunderbird. Here's an example-or 2(?) through the mighty Kasino:

    For all those curious but waited for me to look it up, as I vowed I would, here’s a sampling from one of our fine online sources. Not a bad price, good-looking, and I’ll bet puts our great sound. What’s not to like?

    Yeah, that's it(in either "Smoked Almond Metallic" or "Sparkling Burgundy"). Ad says get it by June 14, but they aren't being shipped by Epi 'til November.
    Maybe they meant 6/14/2022).

    Had to listen to the Kasino before turning in! Would that Epi make a short scale EB-3. :meh:

    Would that Epi make a short scale Embassy Pro :meh:

    I never used the bridge pup on the Epi EB-3L, so my Epi EB-0 would/does sound the same.

    If we ever do this outdoor gig-or one like it-I gots to, one last time, take out the Kasino and have someone record me playing the 1967 Non-Reverse Thunderbird IV being played through it. Freaking awesome.

  20. Neck dive, INDEED!!! I just naturally cradle the neck with my left arm when not playing now!:thumbsup:

    That bridge “NYT” mini-bucker is pretty thin...I dial it in a bit just to add some edge if I dig in over the bridge- usually just play over the sidewinder pickup. 1749FF4A-5AEB-49D7-9777-B4382BD30CE8.jpeg
