    Look at the price tag vs how much money you'll have left.

    I feel your pain. I'm on a one year moratorium on buying new basses, and I've resisted the temptation so far (I passed on a G&L L2000 that was priced at $400 and ended with no bids. I'm still feeling a little uneasy about htat one).

    By the by, isn't a Jazzmaster a guitar?

    I'm GASing for an SWR IOD...but we'll see how it stacks up when I demo it in the next little bit here...Plus, because I'm gonna start working here in a few weeks, I'm gonna add a FMC RNC.

    Before the Jagmaster, there was the Jazzmaster and the Jaguar. They're all guitars.

    Correctumundo!!!!! The Jagmaster was Kurt Cobains combination of the two older models of g***ar!!! He took the best features of both (in his eyes) and combined the names to come up with Jagmaster (I think he might have had some help from Fender though!)


    Here's a thought, weren't some of the Fender Jaguars baritone guitars or is that something else I'm thinking of????


    By the way - Freaky Fender, the only was to cure GAS is with an intensive course of Retail Therapy!!! The high street name for that is the 'go buy 'em' prescription!!!:D :D

    AllodoX - it's Indian food that does that to me!!! I could generate enough to heat a small town the day after a good currie and a few beers!!:D :D
     
  12. A good curry always exits at the same temperature as went it went in. :D

    Just make sure you put your toilet paper in the fridge before you need it.

    Gear Acquisition Syndrome. It's a very active condition that makes you want to buy amps, basses, effects, hard shell cases etc!! It can generally only be cured by an intensive course of 'Retail Therapy':D ;)

    Perhaps you are thinking of the Fender Bass VI? It is a common misconception that it is a Baritone Guitar, but Baritones are tuned a fifth below a guitar, while the Bass VI and the Danelectro UB2(or Tic Tac) bass are tuned in the same range as a four string bass, but with two additional higher strings. In other words, they are tuned an octave below a regular guitar.

    Here is a pic of the Fender.

    Here is an old advertisment for the Danlectro.
