    Wait... you broke an E string and it means your bass is now retired and you are buying a new one.

    That's a really good idea! And wanna know what else is a good idea... sending me retired basses.
  3. Bah! You beat me to it!

    Seriously though, is there something wrong past the broken E that you forgot to mention? :eyebrow:
  4. My Porsche is getting dirty, time to buy a new one ... :eyebrow:

    I think I will use that with my wife. Honey! I broke a string, I have to run down to the music store to get another bass! Those darn strings! But hey, what can you do?
