GAS v $$$

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Peter Squire, Feb 19, 2005.


  1. Hi

    Just talking to JT, and realised that i have paid a lot more money (AUD$) than my new Stingray might have cost me if I had been smarter.

    Has anyone here paid more than they really should because of the GAS factor?

    A ric for 1200 (sales tax included).
    Ibanez EDB600 for like 500ish

    That's about it.

    Nope...I'm a research nut, so I check out all kinds of places/people before I buy (thanks, TB and eBay!!!), and then I neogiate. Of course, this strategy won't work for my next GAS.....Mesa Boogie doesn't neogiate :bawl:

    I spend more money by buying 12 basses that I DON'T want while saving for the bass I DO want and then having to get rid of all the others and take a killing. I'm not doing that anymore.
