  1. Message from TalkBass: TalkBass is currently offline due to a catastrophic fire and subsequent fire-suppressant water damage at the datacenter where our servers are hosted.

During this current lockdown (no band rehearsals since October), I have bought a Bergantino Forte HP head, a Fodera Monarch Deluxe, and a Sandberg Nighthawk Plus. I didn't NEED any of this stuff!!!! And I haven't even been able to hook up the Berg yet, it was just a good deal I couldn't pass up!

  7. Don't care what anyone says- Ricci is smoking! It's her unique look that makes her special. No one has any respect anymore. She's a good actress and painfully sexy. Her figure could make a dead man swoon. So fling your insults. I say she's a goddess.
