    I'm starting a petition to have the classified section removed from this site because I deem it cruel and unusual punishment as declared in both the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (section 12) and for my American brethren I think it's the Eighth Amendment to the United states Constitution. There's just too many great basses for sale and it's killing me because first: I can't afford them. Second: I'm hopeless as a bass player. This madness must stop now. All of those who agree please for the love of God sign this petition. Thank you. Suntory.

    I concur.

    Before I found TB, I had been happily playing the same fiver and fretless for 15 years. I had no idea there so many many people wantonly selling so many killer basses for such ridiculous prices. I still have those same two basses...but a lot more too. :atoz:

    Because they all have those absurd Ibanez necks and some of us like a p-width U?

    Nope just nope. Must have a resource pool for high end basses. The stores absolutely blow bricks for stocking bass and bass related equipment. However I feel your pain!!

    I may be wrong -- and it certainly won't be the first time -- but I suspect that the classified ads are a secret plot -- actually part of a vast conspiracy -- to get me divorced. I calling for a investigation by a House Sub-committee with an eye towards appointing an independent, special prosecutor.

    We'll get to the bottom of this!
