    It's kinda like shopping at Sam's Club. You don't NEED a gallon of Miracle Whip jar, but its a good deal, right? *evil grin*
     
  11. Yeah, out of the house. v:O)

    And naw, I'll leave the fretless ones, my intonation is for squat. v:O)

    The Spector is a great bass. You'll love it. Have fun.

    BTW, what do you do, just sort of rotate through all those basses? I mean, you wouldn't want any of them to feel neglected. :)

    Wife has been digging at me a bit for ordering a second Cirrus bass (you mean it looks kinda like the one you already have?!?), which will bring my instrument count up to a paltry total of four. I think I'll print out your family photo (and maybe JT's too, for good measure) and hand them to her with a smug look and a haughty, "you oughtta be thankful!" Could you photoshop in retail prices and repost, for my benefit?

    ;)

    j/k of course. Congrats on the new "beater."
