    Here's what a maple-maple circa '94 Proline sounds like in Flo's hands. I hope you don't mind Flo, I do have quite a few gems of old sound clips from the forum hanging around my hard drive. Since it is a rare and special bass and the clips showcase it very well, I thought I 'd post. ;-)

    This happened a few years back, we were living in an apartment in Oslo, and I did not have room for all my basses in the living room, so I stored a few of them in a storage compartment in the garage facility underneath the building. Sadly, som drug addicts (needles etc were found on site) broke in to several of the storage units, and took what was there. I never got them back, but we did get some insurance money (however, there was much more there than just basses, so I could not buy them all back).

    For starters, I have no designated bedroom [and no bed].

    Altho there's no designated bass room, there IS a room
    that is just full of basses, but there's more of them in the
    practice room, and a few spilling down the hall ....

    Wow, sorry to hear mate that is some bad luck!! just thinking, could they have run DNA on the needles? They would be in the database for sure.

    My friend's house was broken into and they caught him (the drugo) because he cut himself and left blood on the scene.
