I'm just rambling about my guilty feeling. I usually keep one bass around at a time, as I don't play out too much but I'm starting to get more active again. During 2019, I have had 6 basses come into my household, which is a lot for me during recent years. I have two in my possession right now, a Lakland 55-02 (nice bass but the plan is to sell it) and a recently purchased Stingray 5H Special. I've never spent so much money on a bass before but I really like the 5H, I liked it so much that I decided to buy a 4H version of the Special today. It was the right color and under 8 lbs., so I jumped on it. I go back and forth between playing 5's and 4's (this year I want to play 5's next year it might be 4's), so I figured I would buy one of each and be done with it forever. I already felt guilty after buying the 5H and now super guilty after ordering the 4H today. I bought new this time, so I could get the color and weight I wanted in the Rays. I've dropped over $4k on two basses in less than a month (which is a lot based on my past history). I can afford the basses, I don't have to borrow money to purchase them, bills won't get missed, etc. but it's not pocket change either by any means. I can't help but think I shouldn't be doing this. I'm really bad about feeling guilty about buying something nice for myself, since these are wants and not needs. Plus, if this Jazz group thing gets off the ground I will need a new amp, which I can afford and it's not necessarily an either or dilemna. I have several weeks to return the 5H if I want to and I will have 72 hours to initiate a return on the 4H (mom & pop shop online). Of course, I will have to pay for the return shipping, which is fair. Then I feel guilty about returning a bass to a shop and putting the hardship back on them. I'm not necessarily looking for justification, affirmation or a sermon but I just wanted to share. Anyone go through this type of guilt when buying nice basses?
