So, a few weeks back the War Department gave me permission to buy my first all tube amp rig. I finally found a good local secondhand deal and, although I have not committed to buying it, I have arranged with the seller to inspect it next week. Then, over the Christmas holidays I found a great deal on a semi-vintage (i.e. early 1980's) bass that is singing a siren song. It's a beautiful near-mint condition piece of bass history and it seems too good to refuse, so I have arranged with the seller to inspect the bass next week as well. My heart tells me to go for the bass... but my wife thinks that I already have enough basses. I have the cash, I have permission to buy the amp, but I want the bass... Anyone else have these dilemmas, or am I just wallowing in first world problems?
