    I've gotta give back the 1972 Fender Precision Bass tomorrow to my teacher. He's let me borrow it for 6 or so months, and i've grown very attached to it. :( He wants it back now for the summer. I've posted a photo album of it on Friendster, complete with ashtrays. I'm gonna miss it. :( :( :(
     
  2. What are you gonna get to replace it?

    I've got my Cort P, which is okay for now, but eventually I think imma save up for a '62 reissue, or get a really beat up one on eBay. Maybe an essex will do 'til then as well.
     
  4. Yeah man, I can definately see you with a '62 Reissue!

    Hey man, at least you can say you had the opportunity to play such a great bass for that long. My '78 cost me a pretty penny but it's my grail, and was totally worth it. Now start putting some money aside to buy yourself another REAL bass.

    Sorry to hear that, mate. Looks like a real catch. I'm sure your bass will come up soon, at a great price! Good luck.
     
  11. ...sounds like you should have been saving for the last 6 months.

    but i wish i had that opportunity.
