    Ugh... There's an awesome looking blonde Classic 50s P bass for sale locally for only $400 with a hard shell case, and I have zero scratch available... I'd've been all over this like white on rice two years ago. Anyone ever have this happen to them? :-D

    I'm not only with you:
    think I have to resell a newbought bass (not even arrived yet)
    to pay for baby asylum rent, just because my wife hates my parents (for they're near, while her live far away) and doesn't want'em to spend time with my son while we're at work!!!

    Isn't the 11th commandment: If thou have no cash thou shalt not visit craigslist? No pity for sinners from Joe Nerve.

    Too bad!! Family spending time with your kids is a blessing. I'm a fulltime single dad, with a career, and the few times my parents watched my kids have been real booms for sure! Kids learn who they are that way.

    Sorry Bill. I just couldn't resist. :D But seriously, if there's any way you could swing it, you really should snag it at that price. (Assuming, of course, that there's nothing wrong with it.) I love mine. Awesome tone!

    Man, suuuuucks. That's a really good bass, imo. I use mine for everything. Jazz, punk, rock, blues, country, you name it. And the honey blond? Forget about it. I'm complimented on her looks every time I take her out to play. Sorry, brother. I'd help ya if I could. :)
