    On a bass. What bass would ye buy? You can only spend $2,500. Not more! You can buy a cheaper bass and upgrade with different pick ups, tuners etc. But only $2,500. What bass would ye buy?

    Eric's not giving me a dime but I'd get a Jack Bruce bass of some sort, an old Gibson

    I'm pretty good w/ the basses I have now, so I'd buy a $2500 what ever, return it, & get an Orange AD200

    If this means right now, a Ric 4003W or a Cataldo NR Bird 8-string fretlless or another ExplorerBird.

    If I could find a used one at a decent price, a purple L-2000 and a custom build G&L redburst JB (and assuming 2 would work).

    If I instantly had $2,500 to spend on a bass, I'd need to have a word with some folks in LC to see if we could figure something out. :)

    I would buy 30 Glarry at 84 bucks and plant them in my garden. It would make a nice view for summer evenings.

    I've already got what I want, but I'd probably go FCS. Jazz, sparkle finish.

    Custom shop L2000

    flamed maple neck w/matching headstock
    Ebony fingerboard no inlays
    Alpine white body w/white pickups
    1.5” neck
    Swamp ash body
    8lbs

    that or a nice Warwick with a wenge neck

    I’m at the point where I like my stable but would get the “nicer” versions of what I have.

  13. First, I need to upgrade my amp to a Bergantino setup. I have some nice basses already but I've been playing them through my mediocre setup. I feel like I'm not getting the full benefits from my instruments.

    If it must go toward a new bass, the money would be a down payment on a new Beardly Custom that I've been excited about.

    Probably would come down to a Ray Classic or a USA G&L L2K, best one I could find. But maybe I'd take another look at Maruszczyk.
    Or, with no strings attached and it's magic money from TB Heaven, maybe something I want but don't need and really cant even benefit from except that it would be fun to possess:

    I'd contact Bruce Johnson about one of his Ampeg type scroll basses, but I'd have to decide between fretless and fretted.
     
  17. That is very nice!

    ...I guess I'd ask her to give it to someone who needs it more. ;)
     
  20. I'd offer to return the money in exchange for an explanation of this dumpster fire of a year.
