So I played the Match 4 game last Friday, where you win $10,000 if you match all four numbers. I think the game is only here in Washington state.

My numbers were 5-6-12-14.

The winning numbers were 5-6-12-15.

scratch

One number from a new Marshall bass rig.

But I did win $20. Laughing

yep that would have been a nice end-of-week gift a Marshall head, a BB414 or whatever that holy-grail bass is, and the rest to pay bills with so you can be a little more comfortable for a few months.

Well, not exactly. I think the Feds get 36 percent in taxes, which would leave only $6400 if I did my math correctly.

And I've been considering Marshall since Andy owns two full stacks, and I thought it would be cool to have a full Marshall backline with the band. Plus the fact that he let me run through his modded JCM800 one night, and it screamed! So I'm thinking maybe an 8x10 with their big bass head for my clean lows, and 2 of their 1x15's driven with a JCM800 for my distortion. But I am still holding out hope for finding a working DOD G7, and then I could run that through my QSC power amp for my dirt instead of having to plunk down almost $2,000 for a JCM800. Then it would be a Yamaha BB300 modded to my specs, with the DiMarzio pickups, and a trem. Once I get my hands on one of those Bach Musik bass trems with the fine tuners, I am going to have Andy machine me a toplock. Naturally, I would pay him for his time and the cost of materials.

All told, that would eat up the majority of the money.

But it doesn't matter anyways since I only won $20. Laughing

LOL! Laughing

Unfortunately, I'm so poor these days, it went towards what few and nearly non-existant funds I have. Wink
