Anyone in/near Katoomba?

Post by narcdor » 14 Jun 2017, 10:37

And willing to organise shipping a bass south for a case of beer etc if I end up winning the auction? Seller is quoting $180!!!

It's a stray bitsa, needs some work, but I do love a short scale.

FWIW, Katoomba is way out in the sticks. I would have been one of the closer Ozbass members before I moved to Qld, but I still would have had to drive about an hour each way.
* 2 Stingray 5's (one heavily modded), Ibanez SR805, Ashbory, + more...
* Carvin B1500, Epifani PS1000, Ashdown Superfly amps.
* Lots of DIY neo/lightweight cabs including one made from composites http://www.ozbassforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2546

Coincidentally my wife's family used to live there ages ago so I'm familiar with how far out. Some great stories from the father in law on hijinks they used to get up to catching the train in to the city for work when he was young. I wonder how long that train ride would be now, many decades on, and I'm sure a lot more stops...
