Anyone else have this problem?

  1. Does anyone else start wanting to buy a new bass every time you get a new CD? Whatever sound the particular bass player is getting makes me want the same kind of bass. I just bought a Marvin Gaye CD that has me wanting a P-bass.

    My problem isn't so much wanting a new bass, but wanting new amps. A vintage Ampeg when I listen to the Ramones, anything old and tubey when I listen to Jamerson, more SWRs when I listen to 311, Edens when I hear POD, Marshalls when I listen to Cream...etc.

    Every time I listen to 311 I find myself wanting to play a Warwick SSII through an SWR rig. And when I watch my Chili Peppers live DVD, I am positive that I need a Flea Bass, or a Wal when I listen to Tool, or a P bass when I listen to..............................................you get the point.:D
