On a recent Google search I found a bass that induced instant, total, pulse-raising, heart pounding love...or, maybe, lust . HAD TO HAVE IT!!! I have an extremely soft spot for Hamer Cruise basses (I own 2 of the J-style ones) and this screamed "I am the bass that was created for The Thinker!!" I was thrilled to see that it was right in Chicago...and I am in the fortunate position of having cash. So I called the shop, ready to tell them to put this naughty girl on hold. Me: "I'm calling about the Cruise Bass." Shop guy: "Oh that sold." Ah, well. If anyone on the board bought this and isn't enamored, send me a PM.
