On a side note: Leo was very hard of hearing (and he refused to wear hearing aids).It was a special day to visit the factory and guys that G&L .. almost a pilgrimage in a funny way..
I grew up on Fender’s and played a musicman sterling bass for a while.. so to hold and play the prototype bass was a pretty special moment..
I’ve also got that amp set up in your photo (HD150 I think) but with black logo badges.. I seemed to have gravitated to U Leo’s inventions without really knowing it..
and I concur with your sentiments in regards to U Leo’s build quality..
So that amp was usually dimed! I usually wore earplugs, and I wasn't the only one.
As I recall, that was a Musicman twin setting on a bass reflex cab with a 15" Altec.
