    You meant 15 replies, I guess, oh amused one. Sheesh.

    Thanks for your input. It may well be a totally senseless thread...which you took the time to reply to instead of just moving on.

    But hey, if I can help you out with anything, let me know.

    I thought the post was cool and enjoyed the thread, except for maybe one post! .

    But everyone is different so what works for some does not necessarily work for others

    Some of the bass threads are about specific basses or topics that everyone may not have the experience to be able to comment. So not surprising to me that those posts may not have a lot of replies.

    The forum has changed over the years, mostly due to corporate necessity. Once, we were a tiny little dark corner of the intertubes, everyone kind of knew everyone else, and sometimes we even met up in real life for drinks and basses and EBMM swag.

    There are rumors that we even went to SLO and toured the factory and had some concerts and jammed together and I think at some point there was a costume party and then a big fiesta at a yacht club in the middle of the desert. Could any of that be true?

    So if you're relatively new here, well, welcome aboard. Hope you find it instructive. But also understand that there are still a few of us around, we old grizzled veterans, and we remember when we had lots of off-topic fun and games and pterodactyls blackened the skies over San Luis Obispo.

    My advice, and it is only that, and you get what you pay for, is that if you come upon a thread or a subject that holds no interest for you, do what I do: walk on by.

    I totally agree with you Jack on what you said. I am still on this great forum but not as much as I use to
    I still have all the swag we got from the open weekend at SLO I can't believe that was in 2007 if my memory doesn't fail me.

    I remember those times in my distant imagination.

    But you have to hand it to Karl. He did find an interesting way to liven up this thread.
