  3. You deserve to treat yourself. But also get her something special as well of equal value. She gonna be pissed.

    Does she have to skip a medical procedure for you to buy it? If so, go ahead and feel guilty. If not, you’d still better hurry and get her something that she likes.
     
  6. She gets anything she wants and I never complain

    We're all going to die someday buddy. Get what you want if you have the means and aren't depriving the missus of anything. I say dig deep recognize that you feel guilty, accept it, and then keep that situation between you the bass the strings and your fingers. Why shouldn't you have the P bass? This is why I like to have matching non-branded black cases for everything....:D

    Unless it is coming from a separate account, and you don't have debts, you probably aren't feeling guilty enough.

    The question is why do you feel guilty? Why do you feel like you have done something that you shouldn't have done? Is it because you legitimately shouldn't have bought the bass, or is it because you're worried that your wife thinks you shouldn't have bought the bass? Those are two very different things. The former which you should probably listen to, the latter, which you should probably ignore and keep the bass between you and the amplifier....:smug:
     
  15. My girl is still angry at me for buying my yamaha. I had to sell my warwick rockbass and my Wishbass Lobe. I was ok with that. But i still feel guilty when she sees me with it. I get the eyes like im flirting with another girl. I didnt approach it very well.

    My girlfriend never says anything about my equipment purchases. I use my own money and as a heavily gigging bassist, it pays for itself in short order. I work 50+ hours a week at my day job, plus gig almost every Friday and Saturday night.

    I pay the lion’s share of the bills and she works part time due to chronic foot injuries. She also is able to spend more time with her kids because of her reduced work schedule.

    If you aren’t struggling and paying for it from your earnings, I can’t imagine a significant other complaining about buying a piece of equipment.

    I’m sorry if anyone here has to deal with that nonsense.

  17. I have a split pickup p bass I wanted another single coil p bass like the 56 I got rid of years ago, which I regret, but this bass smokes that one, just feel like I wanna come clean but yet I don’t because I know the ramifications

    When your wife eventually discovers it, telling her “That old thing? I’ve always had that one...” will seem ever the more believable since it’s a Nash.

    She said that your happiness was her number one concern. You're all set.
