Opened up my Peavey Combo 300 guitar amp last night...

It's probably 30 years old now, but as far as I know, it had never been opened up. Concerned with what I might find, I opened it up yesterday to clean & DeOxit the pots & inputs. Not too bad! Caps have no discernible physical issues, a little bit of crud on all the inputs. Removed all the ribbon cable plugs on the board & cleaned all contacts, used fader lube on all the pots, & put it all back together. Couldn't hear if it made any difference as my guitar uses 9 volt batteries, which I'm out of, but I have some friends coming over today to jam. It already has a lower noise floor, so that's good~

Hey Rabbit, Didn't know you played.

I am in the market for an 8 string bass, if you hear of any, let me know. I am in the market, not urgent, so just keeping ears open for now, not firing up ebay searches or anything (yet).

Yes, ESP, Shecter, Dean - 8 string bass

Watching a couple on-line, but again not in any rush - yet. That could change next week. If you know of anything, hit me up, rather give a friend business (props for referral) than a stranger

Will do...but those things are rare. I don't know anyone who plays one.

Best bet is ebay for someone selling in desperation at tax time~

I have a local guy who can order. Not as rare as you might think, but again I'd like to see if someone bought one and realized they couldn't handle for better deal.

Ebay over priced and I really dislike that they are managed off shorre and only accept paypal (my nemesis).

My son had two 4 and two 6 string and dying for an 8. Figure his Bday in july so depending on how nice he is for mine in March, I may surprise him.
