  4. dang! why you sell it? It looks perfect.

    G.A.S. = Gear Acquisition Syndrome. A serious condition that can quickly drain the pocket book and fill the basement with lonely basses.
  8. Thanks guys for all the love. This is a great fretless, I have a feeling it won't be along for long.

    The worst symptoms of G.A.S. Is regret... Regretting the loss of cash, or regretting not getting the other bass instead. That being said... The best symptom GAS gives is the new inspiration to practice. For better or worst the symptoms always dissipate w/ me though...
