OK, y'all, help me resolve my GAS here: I play 5ers, a Yamaha BB415 and a custom one from John Toon and I love them. They're what I gig with, not unhappy with them at all. I did have a Squier VM Jag, put it up for sale to offset the cost of the Toon bass. It didn't sell, but instead I got an interesting trade for it, a fretless Michael Kelly ABG. So now I'm wondering if I should plan on getting a traditional fretted 4-stringer again. It's kind of like this gnawing feeling that I should have one. Plus I'd like to learn slap and have gotten frustrated trying to do it on the 5ers - too much hitting extra strings and making noise. Options: tell myself to shut up, forget the GAS, and be happy with the basses I have. Money is more needed for an amp upgrade, wireless system, and food anyway. or: get a cheap 4-string, like an SX, to tool around with. or: save a while and get a really nice 4-string; been GASsing a lot for a Carvin SB4000 or a Lakland Duck Dunn Skyline. I'm a little worried that if I go the cheap bass route I'll just keep GASsing for one of these and end up spending even more money in the end... Thoughts? Yes I know, it's all personal and all that, just curious what TB's reaction is. Moneywise, I should explain, cash has been really tight but next year I'll have a position with better pay, which means I could get a cheap bass early in the fall or save for an expensive one at the end of the school year.
