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?
