Re: Show us your Bass!

Well it's been nearly 2 years since my last family pic.
Have got a couple more and got rid of 1 as well, as well as replacing my big Trace.
Just looking at a new aquisition at the moment so if I get that I will post a new family portrait late next week. :twisted:

The Swingers- Counting The Beat

Hey Guy's
