    G.A.S. List:
    - One VERY specific Musicman Bongo
    - Musicman Big Al 5SSS, preferably Vintage Sunburst
    - I've always bought used so I plan to get my self a brand new boutique-ish bass that will be a retirement gift to myself in a few years. Today, Serek seems the most interesting to me, but basses such as Sandberg, Maruszcyzk, Musicman BFR (because I'm a huge MM fan), Sadowsky, and Roscoe are certainly worthy candidates.

    I honestly don't mind that you despise my sunburst Precision with flats and a tort pickguard. What I don't get is why you feel like you're entitled to be an ass about it? :eyebrow:
