My '79 RD Artist

EB-2DC through an Acoustic B320 head, an old Peavey 410, and a folded horn cabinet with a Cetec Gauss 15. It's pretty loud. I don't have pictures of the Epi Thunderbird in action, but I probably wil

Me Too - I have 4 Gibsons, and have never had an issue with any. I don't have anything bad to say about my Fenders - they play well and sound er......, well - like Fenders, and although the quality is

Thanks to the AMS sale, I've added a Les Paul and Midtown to my arsenal. Both play fantastic, but the LP seems to work a little better with my live band than the Midtown. Even though I love the look of the Midtown and that neck pickup is pure chocolate with the tone rolled off, overall it seems a bit too soft at times. We'll see... Perhaps the 335 Bass may be next on my list!

Noice! I have a LP so I know what that's about. The Midtown looks great.

 

I have a loose mudbucker from the late 70's and I've been thinking about putting it to some use again. There's something about that sidewinder sludge that has a place. I know the new versions sound much tighter than the old school, but I heard my friend's 67 Rivoli not that long ago and it was awesome. Every note was clear and fat. I'm sure the amp/cab being used have a lot to do with it as well.

 

Good luck with those beauties!

gsgbass:

Remember the wait I had for my SG Bass? 9 months I think.

 

I just ordered a Guild Starfire Bass back in November...still waiting...

 

I'm glad you brought up the trials, and tribulations you had just ordering your SG Std. I remember you were having troubles just getting the order through the local dealer you wanted to go through. You and I both were getting SG Std.'s at the same time.

 

The Fretless Jazz I ordered from Sweetwater is on it's way. Estimated delivery, Thursday, the 26th. Merry Christmas from Sweetwater Santa. I am going to change out the Tort PG, to a Black Pearl PG. The Black Pearl PG is on it's way from Fender. [rolleyes]

 

I hope your Guild Starfire Bass shows up soon. Who did you order it through? The longest I ever waited for an ordered bass, was two and a half months. That was a G&L SB-2 special order, to my specs.

Yes, they just sold the last one.

I prepaid so I have first dibbs on the next batch they get.

They will send me pics and I can tell them the one to ship.

 

That's good. After I ordered my Jazz, they sent me pics of it. The pics of the Jazz were the ones that appeared in the Guitar Gallery, the ones I saw before ordering it. I had a choice of one. :rolleyes: It's still a good way of ordering an Axe. Not as good as in your hands to buy, but better than sight unseen.
