    this might do better in Basses [BG].
  3. That's completely up to you, man...but I know the scenario

    Here it is...

    1...You're gonna get the Geddy anyway, because you like it
    2...You're not gonna like the fact that you can't play everything you want on it

    3...as a result, you're gonna find another bass

    4...this new bass will lead you to try something different

    5...as a result of this new bass you will go and find something that does that different thing better

    I give it 6-18months TOPS!
