    You should lie back and think about how great your life is.

    Why is twice as much GAS in a realtionship a good thing? I suppose if you both want all the same stuff its cool, but do you really want to argue with your S.O. over Sadowsky vs. Bongo or Skyline vs. Stingray?

    No thanks, I'll stick with my opera singer girlfriend, she understands my obession with music, but she needs to buy no equipment (since my GAS list extends to studio gear, the only stuff singers buy).

    Enjoy it!

    My wife just bought me a Fender MIM Deluxe J V and I still can't believe it.

    She still wants to buy me the Marcus Miller signature if we ever have the money.

    She really likes that bass and she just loved the one she bought me.

    It's a blessing when your sigificant other is into what you like to do.

  11. oh believe me i am, actually she bought me my very first bass and got me into this crazy world. she is so supportive of everything i do and is always willing to listen to me go on and on about things i read on talkbass or new things i want to try. she is an amazing girl and i count my blessings every day

    That's sweet, man! Sounds like my wife.

    Happily married for seven years now, and we've known each other for ten.

    Not very often you can find someone like your gf. That's something special.

    Congrats on the upcoming bass!

    Very cool.

    I don't wanna piss in your punch, but my word of advice would be BE CAREFUL. Last week I sold a bass to a guy who was replacing the exact same bass I sold his girlfriend a year and a half ago. She bought it for him for a bday gift and when they split up she took the bass with her. This kind of thing happens more than you'd think. Just be careful :)
  15. Show her the bass central or bassnw pages ;)

    +1. That way, if she splits, the bass is legally half yours and all you have to do is offer to pay for her half. Then you can keep it. ;)
  19. hah, believe me if you guys knew all there was to it you wouldn't be the only one asking me to do this. I mean when I have to work long shifts she drops whatever she is doing and comes to bring me lunch and whenever our work scheduals don't line up she will do her best to get extra days off to come and see me at home and to top it all off she is drop dead goregous! I totally lucked out on this one and I keep asking myself why in the heck she is with me.

    (it must be the big feet)

    edit: and yes its true what they say :smug:

    we do wear big shoes :bag:
