    Just come up with a "NEW AND IMPROVED" version of something(whatever)and make unsubstantiated claims about it, take the money, and run like hell(2 overlapping song titles in one sentence).

    People keep giving me several year old stereos. I’m using what was a very expensive 7+1 receiver a few years ago with our 20 year old stereo speakers, with HDMI running to the Samsung 4k tv we bought last year- first we’ve bought (the crt junker died).

    But why can’t Gibson make great cases for their birds?

  6. Maybe that was coming after the left-handed Thunderbirds and NR reissues, but then they let Henry go.

    Could very well be. That's why I'm waiting for tomorrow to go back at the store and talk to guy who sold me the head, he's a pro bassist sponsored by Traynor and knows his stuff. I'll make sure I get a good cable this time :).

    oh no! Pushed back another month? I’m still hoping the delays are because they decided to do a claw and two-point. One can dream, right?

    You know? Hanging out with you has turned me into a fan rather than a casual listener of them. Thank you.

    I really like the bass line in this song.......Plenty of Thunderbird action from Mr. Gallup.

    Ha ha ha !!
    When I published my post, I had a feeling some of it was coming back at me, one way or another. No offense, mon ami :).
    Actually, I'm the one who went to him asking if I could plug in, my usual guy was on vacation that day.



    Thx. Feel like I upped my game with this :).

    I think the case for the ‘13 is well made. The ‘15 case looks nice, but nails pop out unexpectedly.

    I’ve got a nice case that came with my 2018, but I’ve only used it a few times. I’m mainly a soft, double bass case guy. But the Gibson case seems pretty solid. Maybe if would fall apart if I used it more.
