Well, I've crossed that line into lunacy- I've gone and bought the same bass twice. I've watched and chuckled to myself as others have sold a bass, only to buy it's twin again, or even the very same bass back! In my case, it's a Lakland Skyline Jerry Scheff. Shoreline Gold. A perfect combination of clean good looks, singular sound and odd ball panache. It was nice and light too, and I got it for a song. It was my first Lakland and led to my working relationship with them. Long story short, after a few years I sold it in a frenzy to get a certain Japanese Jazz (which I still own). I do prefer the thinner Jazz neck at this stage of life. I pretended I didn't miss it, but every now and again one would show up and I'd realize I was fooling myself. Anyway, the planets aligned the other day and a nice Scheff appeared just as I had $ in my pocket from an amp sale. I feel foolish, but satisfied. Could this be the end of G.A.S.?
