    All this talk of you people getting new basses is starting to take it's toll on me. My MIM Fender is good, and I love it (I'll most likely never sell it), but I'm starting to feel the urge for something....different. I hear the talk of Laklands and Zons and all this and I just get this little twitch thing going. I went down to my local store the other day and noodled on some of the basses down there, but it didn't worsen my GAS, nor did it help it any. I guess I'll hafta go buy a cord or something to quench the desire to buy.

    right now.. Im the urge for an SVT115E 1x15" Cab to complement my 410HE ,(I need more lows for my 6 string bass)
    After that... Im in the need of a Warwick Streamer LX 6 String, or a Corvete Proline 6 String Broadneck.

    after that, Its definetly an SVTIII-PRO Bass Head..
    I need to replace my Hartke2000, it will be too weak for my cabs.

    hehe...
    Thank God I have dealer prices on all of this stuff, Im starting a store where I live, It will be called Poto´s Music Dealer.
    You know whats to have catalogs on every line you sell?
    Im drooling ...

  8. It feels good to spend money on things like Expensive basses and bigger amps. My friends and my mom tell me that I should stop buying musical stuff and save to get a new car. Well, all I can say is that after today i will be driving my 1980 Malibu Classic Station Wagon for at least another 2 months!!!!!!!

    Wow! that's trippy! I was just gonna post about this topic and I saw your Warwick photo.I was in a store tonight that has an NOS Wawick FNA 5 JUST LIKE the one in your photo,the same color and flame on the top!And the best(or worst,depending on the perspective one takes)part is it's on sale for $999...BUT WAIT,the guy said he'd go even lower and he's holding it for me for 48 hrs while I decide.The hell of it is,I just bought a Thumb Bolt On 5 in November,and I really like it,BUT I REALLY LIKE THIS FNA,TOO!!! Anyone know a good 12 step program?

    Right now I really want to order a Kinal MK5-B. I also want a 15in extension cab for my Carvin RC210, although realistically I have absolutely no need for it. Someone should start a counseling program. Think of it: BPA - Bass Players Anonymous.
     
  15. JimTBP, sell the Malibu and regret it forever!!!

    Unless you get into a Suburban or something, you'll never get another car that will hold the same amount of gear as the Malibu will. To boot, it's got a tailgate and easy loading! Mark my words - next to a good amp, something to tote it in is the most valuable piece of gear you can have.

     
  16. My car gets me from point a to point b just fine but,
    -No A/c
    -mono radio
    -cruise (sometimes)
    -rear window pneumatic things leak, doesnt keep window open
    -light blue (and rust)
    -chicks don't dig the shaggin wagon
    -my friends dont like to ride in it
    -gas milage 9-10 (on a 3.8 V6)


    The only thing cool about my car is the Dice and the Sheepskin steering wheel cover.
     
  17. You guys gave me GAS too! I've got a sqaure jawed rasberry for a GK head, and a MM Stingray, and a Carl Thomson bass (just like Les!!!)

    This sounds like a support group but I've got it too. I had to buy some casters from keeping myself from buying an extra cab for my combo amp. Someone's gonna have to lock me up when i get my tax return. I just bought a house and I don't have any pictures on my walls, Help me!!!! I'm staring at my amp right now thinking how good a 15" cab would look on it. MMMMMMMM.... 15" cab. (drool)
