    Ever get that itch to buy something for no good reason? I can't shake it. I've got a great stable of gear, but for some reason it feels like once I have it all dialed in, it's like I get used to it... or I get bored. The next logical step is to seek out something new and begin again. I'm currently jonesing for a jazz ever since I sold my first ever bass (mid '90s MIM Jazz), but between my multiple Precisions, my T-40, and a Ric it's not like its a tone I can't cover.

    I guess there's not much point to this post other than a need to identify with other restless souls. Anyone else feel this way on occasion?

    And yes, I'm pretty sure the simplest and cheapest solution is to try a new brand of strings. Maybe I will.
  2. I feel this way all the time, absolutely nothing wrong with what I have yet somehow everything else seems just a bit better.:rollno:

    yeah, its the eternal itch. i think i just start to get sick of my tone, or crave something different all the time.
  4. Upright bass?:bag::D
  5. I have this same issue pretty often. Normally it's with pedals.
  6. Yeah...I get this, too. But I have enough basses that I just play one I haven't been playing a lot.

    I go through the same thing, if I'm not looking at basses I "need" I'm looking at different pedals, amps, or cabs...just need money now
