We've reached the milestone of 6,666 threads here on the Basses (DB) forum. Congratulations, everyone! What kind of bass were you playing in October of 2000--or when you discovered the forum? If you've upgraded since, when and why? Curious as to why some people stick by the plywood beaters, while others are on a chronic quest to escalate. Just thought this was a good opportunity to discuss long-term relationships.
