Prior to this past Christmas, I tended to play only J basses. I love the neck and the growl, and I thought I'd always own a Jazz bass.. My wife and I stopped in to Guitar Center six months ago, and I played a Warwick Streamer Standard (two pickup) and really liked it. (That's not the debate here.) Anyway, to make a long story short, I now play the Warwick, and do not have a Jazz bass. Onward: I stopped at the local music store yesterday and scored an SWR Workingmans 15. (I'm loving it.) Anyway, the bass I was playing through it was the Fender Geddy Lee signature bass. When I got the Warwick, I was deciding between that and the Geddy Lee. I opted for the Warwick. So now my wife says that if I'm going to get a Jazz bass again someday anyway, why don't I just go pick up the Geddy Lee bass. (I can get it for $700 with hardshell case.) Here's my dilemma: I still really love the way the Warwick plays, and I just got the amp yesterday ($500 used.) I have a hard time reconciling the cash outlay when I'm not actively looking for a new bass. On the other hand, when the CFO says "go buy that bass," I feel like I probably shouldn't hesitate. I don't have a problem picking up all kinds of new guitars (all cheap, by the way - MIM Fenders, Yamaha, stuff like that) but I feel awful about buying basses that might not get used every day. Trust me, I'm no whiner (Oh woe is me, I have to get another bass) But I'm honestly wrestling with this. Do I spend the money and just keep both basses forever? Do I even NEED another bass? (I'm almost exclusively a basement jam type of guy. We play cookouts, parties, and we've got a hall booked for a big bash in a few months.) One side of me says: ALWAYS buy more music equipment. The other side says: Yo, you're going to have to actually pay money for this at some point, you know.
