I went to my local music store today and asked how much 2 basses would cost me both warwick. one was a corvette the otehr a thumb bolt on. i was told that they would be about 1000-1900 at the most. i was stoked. I got home and find out that the thumb bolt on retails for around 3200. I sit here crushed, I had my hear set on this bass I am in high school and have a part time job, I would stilll have to work for another 8 months to buy the bass and i wouldnt have a case for it or anything just a bass i wouldnt be able to buy a car either... I just cant justify buying it. i need to find another bass that costs less looks simukar and sounds identicle it may be hard ir impossible but if you have any ideas shoot them up.
