    How about this, wait, and take your time to find a stellar deal on the Cutlass, and keep in mind this is either going to be a savings with benefits (being able to jam on the bass), or an investment, that is if you pick one up you can eventually turn a few bucks on. This is a great way to try gear, as long as your not afraid to turn over the bass to free up the money, when it is needed.
     
  4. if your car's running fine, there's no need to get another car. the world has enough pollution.

  5. I would purchase a better car that will get me to my gigs without breaking down.

    Then I would save my money and buy the new bass!

    It depends on what kind of car you have. If it's going to break down often, then by all means get the Cutlass. Otherwise get that bass!
