    I was invited up to boston to play in a Berklee ensemble. That was great. Afterwards I decide to take a nice trip down to GC boston. I'm playing some different basses, and then as I'm playing a dude comes up to me and asks if I am "whafrodamus" from TB. I say yes.. It's one of my best TB friends, I like Tictacs! I talk to him online all the time. It was a good time. Then Bakeroo comes around and we all sit and jam. I brought my fender and they played it, Mike (Tictacs) brought his modulus flea which was quite a good bass. I really enjoyed it. We then ate chinese food and stuff. It was quite a good time. Oh, we played a warwick $$, and it was poo. The spector euro preamp is loud... very loud. and I made a few other discoveries. The Peavey B quad is awkward, and again.. Modulus fleas pwn. What a day.

  4. I must say, it was pretty epic. I didn't want to be like all creepy knowing your name and I had no idea who you were, so as soon as you told the salesman he mislabled the ric, I was like, oh lord only Whafro would make that comment cause he raved about it on TB. So I was like, yo dawg, you post on TB? And he was like, yeh dawg. And the rest is history.

  6. Oh yeah, I am about this || close to buying a thumb 6. Just don't know if I want to wait to play it for a month or just order the damn thing. I know how it's going to sound, but whatever.

    OH! Yeah.. about the ric. GC boston has this Ric for sale for $1249.00. It was labeled "Rickenbacker 4001". I take a closer look, and I see that it's a Ric 4003. Infact, a 2001 4003. I tell the guys, and they didn't know what the hell I was talking about. Good times.

    Cool beans, if I ever ran into a Talkbasser... I'd run from them, for they would find out that (iamtheqintar) I'm not that good at bass and have terrible social skills.
