    a Spector NS-2-JA-R.

    My wife won't let me buy one until we

    1. Move into our new place.

    2. Purchase a new SUV for her.

    Somebody please buy a NS-2-JA-R in natural, and a NS-2-JA-R in black and hang on to them. I should be able to purchase them in the next couple of months :bassist:
     
  2. If she gets a new SUV, you should be able to spend just as much on yourself!

    Pull out the "If you get a 20k SUV, I get a 2k bass".

    If that doesnt work, too bad. I highly doubt anyone here on TB is going to buy them, then sell them to you in a few months.

    Thats crazy man! :eek:

    There's one up for sale on TB.

    I say buy it and take her SUV shopping.
    I go through the same crap but I just buy what I want and then ask her what she wants for her cash retaliation. Last time it was a Chinchilla. Not the coat, but the pet with the cage, accessories, etc.. That thing ended up costing me half the price of my SWR rig. Oh well, she doesn't bitch about what I spent on my rig. :)

    I should just man up and buy the basses, but we really need to get moved in to our house, and we need a 7 passenger vehicle so we don't have to take 2 vehicles every where we go *we have FIVE kids*

    When the time is right, I'll get the basses. I am in LOVE with those re-issue Spectors!

    Eh my wife is great. When you are 36 and not 19 you'll see the perks of marriage ;)

    If I had to choose, as hard as it would be, I'd never pick up a bass again and choose my wife!

    This is the second marriage for both of us... I have 3 kids and she has 2... the SUV is pretty much a necessity!

    On the bright side... you can skin the Chinchilla and sell it and buy gear with it :bassist:

    I don't think I could get much for my wife's handbags or shoes... but you never know...

    If you see any handbags or shoes on ebay... you know I'm trying to raise money for my Spectors :bassist:

    I laughed pretty hard at the chinchilla comment. :D
     
  14. better buy the bass and not tell her. Do it before the SUV gets purchased, because if gas prices go back up, your disposable income will shrink.
     
  15. Get a Mini-Van over an SUV. SUV's are the devil. :rollno:

    But still, it's all give and take right? ;) :ninja:

    With 5 kids you ain't kidding, you need some kinda wagoneer! Then again with 5 kids you don't need a $2K bass just because, but you know this. If you're carrying monthy credit debt and only paying minimums then it's outta the question. We all really really want. Hell, I'm playing into a PC, out via an old stereo receiver, listening w/headphones cuz I can't afford an amp. :bawl: At least you got an amp.

    You do have an amp right...
