    I played one and I thought it was nice. As for the looks... please insert glowing inguts in my eyes. :eek: :D If you get one you are guaranteed the be the first one on your block with one.

    1. Yes, at some point your eyes will glaze over at the sheer variety and you'll be happy with what you have. I have three bass guitars and I think I could do with one less.

    2. Can't help you there, except to say ugg...lee.

    LOL - it's perfectly okay, my pink-paisley GAS has subsided, but at some point i'd love to snag one of those butterscotch blonde '51 reissues.

    GAS never stops. Maybe if I get my ultimate dream Nordstrand? Even if I did, I am sure that I would still want a Bongo, and Dingwall, and whatever shiny new toy comes out next week.

    I love the pink paisley P bass!:cool: I actually know two different people who own one, so while I might be the first on the block, I wouldn't be the first in the Dallas area.

    Can't justify the expense for something I would rarely play. If they came in a five string,...:p

    GAS isn't an affliction it is a lifestyle ;) And yes I like that particular Fender as well.

    GAS always has been and always be our plague.

    I waited a year and a half for my dream bass (my DHuff custom), and I STILL want more!
