So a few weeks ago I found this 1980 Musicman Stingray for sale, and although I absolutely loved it and the price was right, AND I'd been looking for one for quite a while... this year I told myself I am going to save some $$ for a house amongst other things. I decided it would be better to let someone else have the joy of such a great bass at a really fair price. I called the store a few times to see if anyone I knew had bought it, and eventually last week it finally sold. I was having a really rough day on Monday, it was our anniversary, and she decided to surprise me with it. I know everyone who works at the shop, and they all knew she had bought it for me- it was a total surprise. Guess I need to buy an engagement ring now.... ****.
