Okay here's my story; I'm currently living in Vancouver on a 1 year visa. Been here about 4 months. Foolishly I came here without a bass. Last month a family member won some money on the lottery and offered to buy me something, so I ordered a Stingray 4 HH from a local music shop. Now I have to wait 3-4 months for it to arrive. I'm going crazy without a bass to play, so I was considering buying a VM Jazz for $308 Canadian and then trading it in when the Stingray arrives. I've already gotten a quote from the shop for the trade in price, it'd be $150, so I'd be technically renting the bass for $150 or so for 3 months. What say ye fine people of Talkbass. Should I do it, or should I just wait it out?
