This guy may be going back Tues. I've had this model before. Something doesn't sound right with this one. I'm going to compare it with a Hartke and see how it plays out. You may be seeing a Hartke in place of the Ampeg in my avatar tomorrow. I really did expect more from the Ampeg, having used them before.

Fred, you're closer to the truth than you think. A good bass player is going to be somewhat picky about his sound. To a bass player, they don't want to hear a crappy sound doing a run on a break. You still getting hassled?

You are keeping your Marshalls I hope ???????? [confused]

The Marshall fan motor kept giving me fits. Revving up, getting loud. The third head doing this was a bit much. Adios, Marshall MB4210. Howdy, Hartke HyDrive 5410C. It's really a decent amp. 500 watts @4 ohms. Neodymium speakers, and casters. Simple settings that work.

Hahaha, I know, I know. Its just that most bass players stick with their sound once they find it.

Staying with your sound is one thing. Getting the head to work the way it should is some thing else. After three heads, that's enough.

G&L makes amazing stuff, not going to lie. I am gassing bad for one of their Teles...

I was in the local shop where I ordered and got the G&L SB-2, (MIA), from, when i guy came in and began to play the G&L (MIA), of their Tele. He was running it through a Blackstar. it sounded great. He was going to order one , but liked the hell out of one of the ones they had in stock. He bought it and took it home. I really can't find fault with any of the G&L i've seen. The Tribute G&L line is good too. (made in Indonesia). My SB-2 took 2.5 months to make up, to my specs. The way I have it cost only $40. more than a Fender American Std. Jazz. And I've got both P and J pups, with a J neck, (type of neck, fret board and board size I chose), on a P body with select Alder wood. That maybe doesn't mean much to a 6 stringer, but for a bass that's damn good.
