Wife: Let's go out. Me: (kidding) if you gonna buy me a bass. Wife: Ok (I was thinking she was also kidding me). After she's done shopping.....(for almost the whole day!) Wife: Where is the guitar store? Me: (heart beating fast) You're kidding, right? Wife: Do I look like I'm kidding? Inside the music store Me: Are you really serious? Wife: Just find your bass or else.... Me: I want this Black Stingray (I was still thinking she was kidding me) Wife: Are you sure you like that? It looks like a black toilet seat with horns hahaha! Me: (my heartbeat was now 1000 beats per minute) Even a trumpet player will love a Stingray! Wife: Merry Christmas darling! And now I have a Stingray! My very first Made in USA bass! I kept my MIJ Bacchus and Fender P in their respective hardcase for now. Spending my time with this new baby. Still couldn't believe it. I love my wife!
