i did a quick search and i didn't find any threads like this already in existance. forgive me if their are and i didn't notice them or if this is terribly out of place. anywho. presumably, every instrument you own and play heavily inevitably gains some sentimental value to you. So I guess the point of this thread is to share stories and pictures of instruents you own/owned/wish you owned/etc that you apply particular sentimental value to. be it your first bass, the bass you learned on, a bass you really wanted but never got to own, etc etc. for the sake of this thread it doesn't even matter if the instruments are complete and total crap. GO!
