Congratulations,
Both your Ric and Sunn appear to be in great shape.

Nice Sunn you have there! 8) I had a 2nd Generation Concert Amp in the mid '70s.

Thanks guys! I still haul that Sunn rig out a few times a year. (Overkill for a bar gig!) The bass is in very good shape indeed. Those 2 purchases were among my best decisions in the 70's!

Sweet 4001!
I don't remember Ternimal Music on 48th St. in Manhattan. I guess jit was just before my time?
I remermber We Buy & Sell, Manny's Alex Music, 48th Street Guitars, Rudy's Music Stop, Electro-Harmonix and Sam Ash.
I haven't been to Manhattan in a few years, but from what I know, they're ALL gone now. :(
The JETGLO finish name should be officially changed to JETGLO ROCKS! :-)
