Yep, guitarists don't need a bass player, why, they have a knob on their amps for bass! :roll: :lol:

In synth bass really taking over the market? I can't see an entire populous just suddenly lose interest in playing bass! I think a lot of places that sell used gear are going to be enjoying more bass business.

Story never changes. No respect.


I'm there almost every day Mark...not much variety but it's always packed to the gills. Every Fender, Gibson, and Music Man you could want to try (though Bongo basses are rare); occasionally some really cool used stuff too. I played a killer old Tobias there recently, as well as a relic MIJ '51 Precision and a GREAT Sterling (off the top of my head). Mostly Markbass amps plus a few of those Acoustic-brand amps and a smattering of Ampeg.

Always several primo vintage P's and J's in the vintage room too, if you're so inclined.

Well that's the way it was the last time I was there. My intell must be faulty. Good to know I was wrong.

For the longest time, they had this '72 4001 JG in the vintage room.

They wanted close to 5k for it, and I'd say it was in about 6-7 condition out of 10.
