Kind of an interesting story - I've been tele-less for a couple of years, thought about getting either a baja or this one. the champ's been on my mind for ages, too. The GAS was unbearable. So I walk in to get something sorted out on an acoustic and end up spotting the amp first by accident, decided to get it right away because i couldn't find a used model. And i noticed the only BSB in stock, picked it up and that was it. Never bought something just by picking it up, don't think this was an impulse buy - it's extremely heavy and resonant, which i really like and plays great, awesome grain and finish. check out the QC tag on it too The amp is a little hum-ish but i dig it. The tele feels a lot sturdier and better built than my CV strat, which sounds great but is a ***** to set up properly. Anyways i've been working all summer and it was time for a little treat, a sort of a new mini rig day! The last one's a family picture cause I haven't made one in ages!
