    Who wants to start? I know of at least three TB'ers that are going including myself. We should get together and at least s.t.s. I can get a rehearsal space for an evening in San Dimas which is not far from Anaheim if people want to throw down.

    Start posting what nights are better for people and we'll start narrowing it down. I'll find out how much it will cost for renting amps and the space for an evening. I am flying from Oregon so bringing mine would be tough.

    I will try my connections to try to get some DEMO stuff donated by some companies and make it really cool.

    Let's hear it.

    I'm probably driving down from Santa Cruz and I can bring some stuff. Most likely my new Schroeder 1212 and one of my Mesa D-180s (and/or my M-2000). I'll also bring down my Rick Turner bass as I'm not sure he'll be there.

    It'll at least be something for us to play out of :bassist:

    I am going to try to get a couple of my buddies with stuff to show. I am bringing a couple of my Spectors. I have a call into the studio to see if they'll donate time.

    I am only a couple of hours north of Anahiem and would love to go and also go to a GTG, however I lost my connection for NAMM badges and wasn't able to attend last years show. If there is anyone here who can help me get a pass I would gladly pay whatever fee it takes to get one. If anyone has the connections to make it happen please PM me. :bassist:

    I'll see what I can do. If you don't go to NAMM it doesn't mean you can't got to the GTG. It's an open invitation. I just figured more people will be around that weekend.

    Yeah I know it isn't a requirement I would just really love to go this year. I have become much more into "Boutique" gear in the past few years so NAMM would be a much more exciting thing now than it was the last time I was there (2 shows ago when I was working for GC). Any :help: you can give me in getting a pass will be very apreciated. :hyper:

    I design and build electric basses and pickups under the Turner, Renaissance, and Electroline brand names.
    I'll be there with a 10 x 10 section of the Seymour Duncan/Bass Lines/D-TAR booth. I'll have Renaissances, Electrolines, and a bunch of other stuff.

    I'll be there. Perhaps I can "show" some of the new EA gear

    I am going to set-up a kinda check-in thing on one of my websites and get a list together and start my push for the rehearsal space. I'll post the link when I get it built. This is going to be fun.
