    I love looking at higher end basses, but I have made peace with my pocketbook. I do not see me spending more than $1,700 again. The only dream bass for me in that range would be a Tony Franklin Fender Precision.

    Good call. I have a black 2020 TF. Beautiful bass.

    For me there isn't much above that price point, I did spend a touch more on 2 of mine but that was because or rarity, not really because they were worth that much.

    I'm super happy with my current collection, the only thing missing is something pointy/pointier than I already have.

    ok I didn’t have a bad hankering until I saw this. That’s stunning.

    It will look like that except the pickup will be a Delano Xtender split coil, not the humbucker. Here's the garden of hankering (apologies in advance)....click custom shop, then "configurator" and .... hide your wallet......

    • Ken Smith BSR 5 with walnut top. A long time ago one came up for sale for some now ridiculously low sum, like $1200, and I didn't pounce.
    • Pre-CBS Fenders

    G&L Fallout Tribute, but not before I get some pay or sell my Guild acoustic (I'd put a tort guard on't :bag:):

  10. I don't know how this bass has eluded me for so long, but I still haven't owned one!

    Yes, I am really bored lately. So trying to master tuning a 12 string seems like a really fun, sadistic thing to do :)

    Sandberg had my undivided attention for a stretch, but I'm off that for now...

    ...because aside from the prohibitive price tags, I can't spot any downside to the Elrick basses out there :wideyed::wideyed::wideyed:

    pcake's new, black aerodyne, pictured in my mind's eye as a fretless, made me think i might have a 'latent hankering'. :laugh:

    but probably not enough to actually pursue one, so the hankering may not be a "bad" one.

    i voted "no, no, no." :D

    I've been thinking of downsizing all of my mediocre to okay gear to buy just one bass that I can play exclusively, this is the one that's been catching my eye most.
