I keep trying to pick out a nice bass to work towards buying. A kind of reward I can keep in mind when I need motivation. Problem is, every time I think I have one picked out, something new comes up. I've gone from American Fenders to custom Warmoth builds to Dingwall to G&L to Sadowsky to Musicman (and have waffled on different models from all those companies). Lately I've been seriously lusting after a Musicman Big Al 4 SSS. Still want the Dingwall though......and a G&L......and maybe an upright......and those Kala U Basses look pretty cool.... I'm well aware of G.A.S. and I should be happy that I have a few good Fenders and a SUB Ray4 on the way when I mostly just play at home and don't have a lot of spare income. I tell myself this for a day or so.....then I start checking out some Ed Friedland demos and it's all over. I guess there is no fighting it.... My name is Russ and I want all the basses.
