    I was in the process of getting two new five-strings this month. Got the first one, a super-sweet Elrick singlecut (I'll post a thread about that one in a minute) and was about to get this great Hill bolt-on (or a similar one with a natural finish). Then my wife and I were hit with a giant hospital bill from our daughter's birth a couple months ago. Suffice it to say, no second bass. It was a really nice fiver, too. Anyone else have an "almost had it" story of woe?

    Yup, that's me. And my daughter is beautiful and healthy-thanks for asking!
     
  4. Well, I hear there's a healthy black market in babies...

    Ok, I'll stop now. :bag:

    Seriously, though, that's too bad, but if your daughter is doing fine, that's all that really matters.

    I've never been that close to getting a bass but failing, but I do see I lot of good deals on Ebay, etc. where I just don't have the money at the time.
