TBer's!! Talk me out of buying this bass!!

  1. Gimme all the reason why I shouldn't buy this bass. It's a used black atelier z with maple board and white blocks in mint condition. If I buy it, I'll be having it shipped directly from Japan.
    btw, it's going out from my "buy hiderebirth a sadowsky!!!" fund so that could be a reason too :D

    the bass looks exactly like this one

    Every time you buy an Atelier Z, God kills a puppy.

    My work is done here.
     

  3. I humbly bow to your greatness. :D
     

  4. oh nooooeeeesssss~ teh puppiessssss~~ :crying:
     
  5. No, every time you buy a bass, it makes it easier to justify buying the next one. Except for that money thing.
     
  6. but then on a more serious note, I would like some more reasons that can actually convince me please ;)

    You thought I wasn't serious?


    :eyebrow:
     
  9. If you don't buy it, someone else will. I say take it, and if you don't like it, you can re-sell.

    But seriously, will buying the Atelier mean you don't get the Sadowsky? If so, then there's your reason.

    It's my life.
     
  15. that is a very very good reason, and It's a huge dillema for me also :(
     
  16. let me add that I can afford this atelier z right now and i'll have to wait couple more month (or more) to afford any used sadowsky

    I'd hold out for the Sadowsky (even though I don't favor their tone).
