    A couple weeks ago, I dragged my girlfriend into this small music store that i've never been to before. Immediately after walking in a beautiful Lakland Skyline Joe Osborne in Lake Placid blue caught my attention. I took it down and played around with it for a while. I couldn't put it down. This bass is absolutely amazing. It's the only store i'm aware of in my area that sells Lakland's, therefore, it's the first time i've played a Lakland of any kind. She pretty much had to drag me out of the store.
    Moving on now... In a couple weeks is my B-Day. When we got home after celebrating the new year, she pulls out the very bass that I fell in love with. Early birthday present. I was in a state of shock, and still am. It's 4:30 a.m. right now and i've got to leave for work in 45 minutes. Damn things kept me up all night.:D I'm so bummin' today. It's worth it though. I'll post a pic this afternoon when I get home from work (to lazy to take a pic right now). Earlier in the year, I wanted a new bass. Now, 4 months later, I almost have to many, er, what am I saying? It's late i'm not thinking straight. Gotta go.

    Congradulations, its nice to see that not all women of a bass player is jealous of the bass. Give her some words of advice from me...I did the same thing, and I didn't see him for weeks...All good though...He was happy doing the thing he loved most...Oh, and marry her, you may never get the chance to have someone like her in your life twice.

    Good luck, and if you get the ring, send pictures...and Forum rules are...New bass...attach pics.

    Great story!

    Another word of advice - make sure the ring costs MUCH more than the Skyline. You'll be set!

    Not to brag or anything but my girlfriend helped me get an Fbass fretless Caron 6, a fretless Fodera monarch 6 and a fretted Fodera Imperial 5. I'm pretty lucky :)

    Wow. That's a great girlfriend you have there...

    Congrats on the new bass!:)
  13. Now then. Upon discussing the marriage thing, you should let her know that bass players not only like basses for our birthday, we dearly love to go out on Fri and Sat night to play with our stringed toys...

    Make sure she's cool with that.

    If so, marry her right now.

    :eek: :D
