    your the coolest dad in the world.

    I asked my dad if he would buy me a Fender P.
    I'm not going to lie. He laughed at me.:(

    Thank you. But, 2 years ago, I would have had a few giggles myself. I just had a few decent contracts last year and decided to invest in toys, rather than back into my business...

    Yep, that's the evil nymph leading me down the trail to pain and ruin...:)
    nice, aren't they?
  8. My bass needed repair. 60 bucks. I asked to get it fixed and for a new pair of strings for my birthday. The actually said okay. 5 hours later my dad said "How much are strings anyway?" "Like 35-40 bucks" His voice was the highest pitched noise ever what he like jumped and said "What!?"

    A long, long time ago I bought a 2x15 cabinet from my bass teacher...one of the speakers was out being reconed. When he got it back and wanted some money for shipping I asked my dad for it.

    He got really steamed and said something about needing three speakers next...

    Wisely, I resisted the temptation to tell him that my amp wouldn't drive a 2.7 ohm load:D He probably would have knocked me across the room (it was bad enough that I had long hair).

    For some reason, I'm a lot more open minded when it comes to my kid's equipment needs...
