    Great bass, I just cracked the headstock on my EB and it's gone to the repair shop. It's starting to look more road weary than Mike Watt's bass. Did that bass ever turn up?

    Yeah, I was talking about the Yamaha. I'd love to hear some clips of it, especially the low E.

    I have never seen a gay battery only new and dead ones :smug: ( however, if gay means happy, then YES, a gay battery is one with at least 8.5 volts still left in it )

    As to the passive club: I'll add my contribution and request a number
