    My new bass is being shipped today!!! I’m almost ecstatic! Almost! :hyper:

    Nightwoman was right!! Last year I told her I was done with buying new basses. She said she didn’t believe me! :thumbsup:

    I guess I’ll see a new pair of shoes in a few days!! Right! :laugh: We are even!:)

    I just bought one of the new TKL gig bags from Keith. Very nice and sleek. I have a thing for Tolex cases but I use gig bags for gigging.

    Growing up in the 70’s and 80’s in New Orleans my early basses were old 70’s Fenders and Rics that came in Tolex cases and it’s been part of my passion ever since. I haven’t carried hard cases to gigs since the 80’s but I always want them when offered lol. I have a small collection of them in storage just to keep me sane. LOL.

    LOL. I’m good now. I am probably going to be getting a new Standard Plus this year and will be satisfied with the hip new gig bag. But thanks so much for the offer. :)

    Wow! I asked others about this and was told they did not fit. Much better than an open cavity case. Thanks for sharing.

    Well ye old 7 string beast is on its way to its new owner as I await a new to me SKB Custom 3006. I never had any plans to keep the seven but had to try it when it was offered. Now the next Roscoe bass lover can have a turn. The six is my limit. It’s very comfy to me and I have a long history with the six. The seven is a wonderful instrument though. Roscoe quality in a BIG dose.

    Congratulations on your sell and the new 6’er that’s coming, @armybass!
    I kinda wish I had held on to the Roscoe 6’er I had. I think I made my move too soon on that one!

    I have no plans to part with my 7, but if circumstances required me to sell a bass, that'd be the one. Interestingly, it looks like it might be gaining a place in a current project's setlist. The fretless SKB 3006 is still my #1.

    B.B. King was just gonna say that same thing about you selling your 6er! I love that song.
