I had been in the market for two new basses. Then i happened to see a video of Anthony Wellington and another video of Victor Wooten and i began to realize what a waste of money it would be to buy new (or even used) basses when i haven't mastered the very nice bass i already own. I'm not a collector. I truly want to learn to play at a higher level than i do. Why splurge on new basses when i really need to improve before i can justify the expense. Those videos were both inspiring and depressing. But they cured my GAS.
