well, I get attached easy to basses. The last two basses my bf owned, I own now. One of them was a bday gift to me last year, and it is more special cause it was the bass I first played in a band with. Well, he is now going to be the bass player for his band now, cause the other man got fired. He has a beautiful Fender J bass, flame top and I called it Tiger. I got to play that bass several times, when he filled in bass or on karaoke nights. Other ward I got attached to it. He really wants a Music Man stingray. He was gonna ask a guy is gonna trade him his Stingray for it. I was all sad and depressed. My bf then said that he'd sell it to me cause he'd rather I have it than anyone else. He'd sell it to me for $200. I was going to buy it with birthday money I was gonna get in a couple weeks. The guy said yes he wanted to trade. I was like, I guess I can't buy it now. No. I bawled my eyes out. The J bass is worth way more than $200 but being his gf, he was gonna practically give it to me. I told him I will bring my bass to his club for now on, and I won't be playing a stingray. I don't like Stingrays. and this one is ugly too. I sound stubborn and selfish but I grew attached to the Jazz. I don't need another bass, true and I do have to buy my three kids Christmas, so I really don't have the money. We got into an argument about it. He said it's his bass, he does what he wants. So I am sad and mad he is selling it but glad he is getting what he wants. Sorry I just wanted to vent.
