    Yeah, I’ve wanted one ever since Cheap Trick at Budokan... 40 years was too long to wait. I’d kill for a late 70s Trans Am, but it DO still have the 76 Vette, so I’ve got that going for me, which is nice.

    Thanks, everyone, I’m pretty pumped. Glad I took the plunge because, honestly, this is The Ultimate for me.

    Yeah, don’t even want to think about that... Or a bottle of Stagg...

    Well, after 20 years of bitching that I couldn't buy a Standard at what they were going for 20 years ago, I finally blew the dust and cobwebs off my wallet and bought one. Actually, with a head full of Maker's, I threw an offer at one, woke up the next day and thought "Oh, shit", but figured the seller would reject the offer. Much to sober Cary's amazement, the offer was accepted. I love this guitar. My crappy photo skills don't do the top justice, and I like that it seems to be just a hair darker than a lot of 59 Bursts I've seen, which I like (darker in person than in the photos).
  5. Might want to check out a Mesa Electra Dyne... You can run it at 45 or 90 watts and throw EL34s in it. Although, if your trying to get away from "heavy" and "loud", it might not be the amp for you.

  7. Love the color of that Monaco!
  8. For a second there, I thought Brentrocks was still trying to unload that Paul Stanley model.

    So, if I was going to build a bass

    Yep. like that but with passive pickups. Very cool bass!

    So, if I was going to build a bass

    I was actually thinking about this the other day... 4 string, Classic double cut LP Jr/Hamer Special shape, medium scale, hot passive pick-ups, thin neck - 1.5” or maybe 1 5/8” at the nut, Blue or Blueburst flame maple top. Okay, yeah, I basically want a 4 string, passive “Not Steve/Not Chris” bass. There, I said it. 🙂
  11. Oh yeah, I’d be interested to see the details on that Impact...

    Ampeg is now a brand of Yamaha

    My cab is one of the recent Chinese 810s... Seems heavier than the one I had 18 years ago, but I think that he more to do with my age than the cabs - LOL. Originally was going to use my 5 pound Mesa Subway D800, but that doesn’t match the tone of my old Mesa Bass 400+, in a rack with tuner and power supply (about 80 pounds...) So gigs are a backbreaking affair. But, “The Look”. As for Yamaha buying Ampeg, Yamaha has always made decent stuff, so I don’t think this is a bad thing.
  13. Looks like it might be a decent deal for someone. .https://dayton.craigslist.org/msg/d/usa-made-hamer-duotone-fs-ft/6577901002.html
  14. The FBIV had been signed all across the front by the members of Cheap Trick. As much as I love Cheap Trick, I'm glad Jay removed the sigs.
