argh I can't belive it's supporting members only! I don't mean to cause an uproar, but I feel that I have supported and do support this forum 'enough' just by my activity and recommendations to others over the last 3 years. I cannot belive that the optional supporting membership scheme is gradually being enforced upon us - regardless of how you look at it. Apologies that I sound like a scrooge - I'm a student and $20 (£13?) is too much for me to pay out to a forum. This is the only forum I use so I definatly won't be fleeing, just wanted to voice my dismay. oh yeah, anyone wanna buy a red 4 string bass? Or can I tempt anyone with a black 5 string fretless?
