    A couple weeks ago my wife hinted she wanted to get me an Ashbory for Christmas. We went and tried one out and ended up just getting it that night.
    Now it turns out she wants to get me a Fender Geddy Lee signature Jazz for Christmas.
    Last year she got me a Telecaster. AND she loves hockey.
    It's official. She rules.
    Gonna pick up the Geddy Lee on Sunday.

    It's official - my Roscoe LG-3005 will arrive this Friday!
    To top it off, I got my '66 Jazz back from Michael Dolan this Tuesday (the man does fantastic work), so I'm doubly blessed. Actually, three times blessed. When I won the auction for the Roscoe, my wife said good, it would make her Christmas shopping easy, she could just give me $. After seeing it, she also informed me I am keeping the Jazz, she now calls it her bass (I was thinking of trading for a Sadowsky).

    The Roscoe is the most stunning bass I have ever seen (did anybody see the blonde Roscoe on Ira's sale, it's now mine). It has a spalted, 2 tone burl myrtle body, and a spalted purpleheart board. I have to say, my 48th Christmas will be my best ever. Happy (and safe) Holidays to all.

    Yep! My wife said yes to a Bass... so I am getting the Yamaha TRB 5 II Fretless. I should get it on monday. I am in Europe an its the only decent frettless I could find in its price rage. I like the big neck.. I have big hands.

    things are changing with wifes!

    Christmas will come in January and March around here.

    January, ordering that Eden Metro from BassNW!

    :D

    Then, come March(or maybe April, depending on the good old property tax situation:mad: )get that AAA quilted Pedulla PentaBuzz!

    :D:D:D

    That should do me until next Christmas(or at least that's what I told my wife;)), unless I run across a Brad Johnson type deal on a cool old funky bass, like an EB0, RD Artist or Westone Quantum.

    Yesterday I received my Carvin Bunny Brunnel 75 fretless (5-string). I am a happy happy man! Merry Christmas to me. Of course, now I don't have money to get gifts for anyone else. Oh well, I didn't like anybody else anyway! :) :) :)

    P.S. Played a gig with it the same night! My drummer now officially loves me! :)
     
  15. I already mentioned this in another thread, but I already have a new Stingray 5 sitting in my room right now. It's blue with a white pearloid pickguard. Unfortunately, I'm 3 final exams and 5 days away from going home to actually see it. Yep, 5 days from now, no more homework :) no more dorm food, back to good old homecooked meals :p and my new stingray :D
     
  16. :( Baahhhh! Humbug.

    Okay! I'm just a little bit jealous all right!!! ;)
     
  17. At the moment i'm getting nothing but if you all want to chip in.....i'll have a modulus flea bass please
