    After the better part of a decade, I'm tired.

    Sure, it's been fun checking out so many different basses, and buying and trading, but there comes a time where a man gets tired and needs to settle down. A time where a man can be with someone he can count on, someone he can make beautiful music with. A man who's learned that glitz and glamour often disguise an empty, dull core, and that simplicity and identity are the keys to a long and productive relationship. One that is strong, fruitful, and spontaneous.

    And so, my friends, it is with surprising calm I retire from the classifieds and announce my monogamous relationship. That's right, I am now a one-bass man.


    Until next time I can afford a Dingwall, anyway. Then I'll consider polygamy.

    If I had a dollar for every time I said that, I could afford that new bass I want.

    Great looking ax! Enjoy your new life together.

    Beautiful bass! If it’s gonna be just one, I could see that as being a very strong contender.

    Play it well. :thumbsup:



    After you’ve had your fling…you can always come back over to the dark side. We’re now open 24/7. Plenty of free parking. :rolleyes:

    Got it last October or thereabouts, so it's not a honeymoon thing I hope. I've owned several super Ps but this one feels like "the one." If there is such a thing.

    You let me down a little, dude. I came in here expecting an epic rage-quit. Regardless, congrats on finding your "one and only".

    Have you researched pedals that can bring out the true character of that bass yet?

    Nice bass you got there!

    Quitting the classifieds don't mean you have to quit TB. I am personally trying to replace time spent browsing the classified with time spent browsing the general instruction boards.
