The Vampyre Chronicles, FINAL PART

LMAO! Tee hee hee!

Well, I got a phone call from Long and McQuade today after being annoying and persistant on the phone this past weekend. Now, I can be all dramatic but I'll get to the point.

The bass works 100%. I get it tomorrow.

The repair will cost me sixteen dollars.

What was the problem?

Well, remember that bypassed EQ?

The bass' push/pull knob didn't pull out. According to the website, the bass has "active electronics" and not the "push/pull active/passive" electronics every other bass has, so I thought nothing of it.

Well as it turns out, the previous owner of the bass removed the knob of the push/pull pot, pulled the post out to passive mode, and put the knob back on, screwing it on tight. Why? So the bass was always in passive mode. You needn't pull it out again, but you can't push it back into passive mode.

It took the tech 15 minutes to figure out to take off the knob, push the post back to active mode, and reattach the knob like originally intended.

I say again, nothing was ever broken. The dude just kept the bass in passive mode.

LMFAO!! I can't fucking believe it. There was never anything wrong with it! Thank you, Guitar Center in Hallandale, FL, for making my bass-playing life thus far.

Believe it - thefitz owning a $6400 bass (according to basscentral.com) for $216 + tax. It's like Richard Branson winning the lottery! HAHAHAHAHA!!!
