Wooooh there! A DR201 from the 1970s? Well you certainly know how to get my attention, don't you! As a Hiwatt 200 guy myself, I know how great that amp must sound. Nice find and good luck with it. Have you any nice old Hiwatt bass cabinets to go along with it?

Now that's a really nice bass. And it comes with all the hardware, too, which is just the sort of one I'm looking for. Hopefully I'll find one....

The Epiphone Embassy bass has Thunderbird pickups?
I bet that bass sounds great.
I once got a Valentine from a lesbian. It made me wonder if she wanted to start something or just compare notes.
