    I wondered if any of you feel guilty for not using your first bass as much as you use to when you only had one bass? Since i got my jb, i play my p-bass less. That makes me feel guilty, even though i still play it a lot. I'm still in love with it.

    guilt is for the weak. guilt is for those begging to be controlled. guilt is what the sheep going to the shearer's feel for having wool that's too long. guilt is what the lambs feel for having tasty cutlets.

    wolves feel no guilt.

    If I were considerate, I'd give them to the newbies.
    Too bad I'm not considerate, eh? ;)

    I play my 5 basses 20% each. What's the problem?

    Nope. None at all.
     
  9. I feel nostalgic. I look at my T-40 and think about the rough days starting out on it. I think about the first shows I played with it....etc. Good times, playing songs to my girlfriend at the time.

    I don't feel the least bit guilty. I feel good when I see that heavy slab of wood and metal hanging there.
     
  10. I love my new bass, but still try to play the other 2 as much as I can, because I still like them a lot.

    I own 5 basses.

    I haven't missed a paycheck in 30 years.

    My only guilt is that I haven't bought a fretless yet.

    ;)
     
  15. There are more than one bass...


    because you need more than one tool.
    "The right tool for the job!"


    My wife still doesn't buy that statement, but I do.
    No guilt here.



    :cool:

    i only got one bass and i couldnt really care less..it doesnt really matter if you have one or 7635624862987346 it matters how good you are, im quite happy with mine and since i only have 160 bucks i dont think i will be joining your league for a little while...:D
     
  17. No guilt here. I EARNED them! Besides, every one has their own voice.
    As far as the wife thing goes, I told her that my basses will outlast me, and she'll be able to sell 'em off for a little more food or something!
    I heard no argument. EOS.

    I guess i could compare it to having multiple children. If you have one child they get all the attention, but if there is a second child, the first one feels bad because they don't get as much attention as when their younger sibling didn't exist. Well, i guess parents wouldn't feel guilty in that situation, but i have no experience as a parent.
     
  19. Who the heck has time for guilt these days.
    Not me.
