Don't know if anyone else has experienced this cosmic bitch-slap, but history has shown for me that anytime I buy anything bass something else just as expensive (or more) breaks and requires repair dollars. Buy a bass, your furnace needs replacing. Buy a bass, your transmission needs replacing. It has always happened, so much so it's in my head to budget twice as much when buying anything bass related. Is it the "laws of attraction" now? Just thought I'd ask to get a general consensus if it's just me or I've been imagining things.
