    This Moniker, Found Me... It RULES!!! The Aria... has been My #1Mid scale, for over 20 years. I own too many basses (is there such a thing?), and... love them ALL.

    But... I think that, I have My answer. Just need a bit of help...
    Just wanna KNOW, which would You keep?

    I don't wanna hear... "BOTH." Because... I want REAL, educated, answers.

    Yes, it IS possible to have TOO MANY basses, and LOVE them all... 20180117_221937.

    ONE, is gonna GO...

    Thank You.

    More tone choices. It looks similar to an older Ibanez.

    Right?
    But.... Never thought of it, next to My ARIA, which RULES. Guess I'll just, keep them BOTH, so You can keep drooling, instead of playing...

    Oh... did I say "drooling?"
    I meant, "trolling."

    Go play your bass...

    Go buy another one!

    I practiced more walking bass lines and what not, watched a few videos about walking baselines, and started falling asleep watching them.

    I'm not even trolling, but you seem to be the first person who ever trolled himself, so yeah, you're right. Something funny did happen tonight. You trolled yourself.

    I can't put 100 dollar bills, into my toys...
    And, I'm tired of tripping over them.

    I'd keep the Aria and wouldn't have bought the Moniker. It looks like a solid player. But if the Moniker is right for you... Well, it's decision time.

    Although... Vinnie, may have some sort of "agro", "jealous", stoopid remark, to add.
    You there?
    Waiting on You...

    Additionally, you may send this link to any moderator, preferably those which manage the forum you are in.

    At the top of each forum list is a "Moderator List". In this case, @smperry and @Bryan R. Tyler are the guys to talk with about "Basses" moderation. They can delete/lock your threads, which is a power us mortals cannot ever hope to acquire, except by means of apotheosis.
    thor.
     

  16. I think , since the thread is new, you can go to "Thread Tools" at the top right of your first post and delete there.


    If i remember correctly.

    Why worry about what I have to say? Wait, you apparently DO really worry about what I have to say. I just find it humorous that you'd buy a bass, then immediately post a thread asking if you should get rid of it, and I'm not the only one who apparently found that funny and ironic, then get miffed when someone on an Internet forum thinks that it's pretty funny. You've gone out of your way in more than one thread now about how much I get under your skin, and you've already trolled yourself in your own thread. Sounds like you're your own worst enemy.

    And I love how you keep trying to insult me about my playing, or accusing me of not even playing, or not even owning a bass. Also, I have no reason to be jealous of you, even if you think I may be. You're the guy who keeps bragging about the 30+ basses he has but haven't mentioned anything about actually playing them, but that's cool with me. All of us are here for different reasons. Last year I had amassed around 20 guitars and quite a few vintage Fender amps, a nice vintage Sho-Bud pedal steel and some other really nice instruments that I had acquired over the years, and really got to the point where I thought it was a bit ridiculous, so I sold most of it for a really nice chunk of change and no regrets at all. So if you think I'm jealous of your "collection" I'm sorry to say I've been there, done that, and have no desire to be there again. It's liberating and refreshing to have a few key instruments that I love to play.

    Some guys tinker, some guys are collectors, others play professionally, others play for fun, others are just learning while others have been around the block. I'd never criticize anyone for doing any of those things. But I will crack on people for other things in a very sarcastic, tongue in cheek way, and if it's funny, I'll even laugh if someone cracks on me about something. But you seem to get so miffed by ANYTHING I type, and I'll admit, that's pretty darn funny.

    Since you said you're new here (been a member since May 2017 though, right? So I'd say you've had some time to get your feet wet, but hey, we all learn at different speeds), Ill give you a bit of advice, get a thicker skin, don't take things so seriously, and/or just stop replying to me. If I bug you THAT much, why do you bother continuously replying, because you already know that I'll have some follow-up that's going to get you seething?! There is an ignore button, you know?

    If anyone is bothering you, for any reason, just click on their profile name and you should see options. Choose ignore and you're done. Usually a much smarter idea than going into a war of words.
