Just received word this morning that some money will be clearing around the end of August. So first lets be realistic and chip away at the necessities. As there are plenty of them currently and this will be a huge relief. However we will not need all to get caught up. 2 of 3 children's birthdays in August. May as well knock X-Mas out too. Vehicle maintenance needs. Clothing for kids school and supplies for September. Maybe a few months payments on the house/car/Ins. Estimated expense::::::robably about half of it. So I'm left with lets say $7,300.00 Since bass is what I'm currently into pretty obsessively and I see the high end stuff as somewhat of a decent investment. I'm leaning towards buying myself something. These are my ideas so far. Skip any bass related stuff and finally buy my g/f an engagement ring. Even though after my ex, I said I'd NEVER do it again and she really doesn't seem to be into marriage anyway. Not that she'd mind it, just not the type to have all the big wedding plans at all. I'm sure she'd still appreciate it though. Custom Shop Fender Jazz bass made to my specs. Or, Another really nicely refinished Pre CBS Jazz bass. Or, I currently have a Fender BXR 100 15" Combo and want to step up. So Some kinda head and Cabinet set up. I don't plan on ever gigging but would definitely like the option to crank it up & tickle the cute neighbor once in a while. I was thinking Ampeg since I hear so much about them, just don't know enough to make a decision yet. Really like the idea of the Fearful DIY stuff also. Or, Then there's tons of other things that are not bass related but I see no need to go into those here. So if you had $7,300.00 and all your bills were caught up what would you buy?
