Im heading out next Monday on a two-week business trip. This will keep me away from my beloved basses, which I refuse to subject to the rigors of airplane travel. Id love to have a bass on hand to 1) keep up with my practicing, and 2) alleviate the boredom of being on the road for an extended period. Ive already posted a WTB ad for a cheap bass on the destination citys local craigslist site, but have had no response. I thought Id try to pick something up for under $100 and sell it off to a pawnshop at a small loss. Worth it in my opinion. Then it occurred to me... hmmm to go the local outlet of a chain music store upon my arrival, buy a bass that I like, play it to my hearts content, and then take advantage of the stores return policy to get my money back prior to my departure. FYI - I've made some major purchases at the said store back in my hometown, so I am an established patron. So the question I pose to this esteemed group is should I buy a bass well knowing that Id simply return it, effectively using it as a free rental? Thanks for your thoughts on this moral dilemma. Jess P.S. I dont need an amp would use my Korg Pandoras Box with headphones. P.P.S. PM me if you want to find out which Midwestern city Im headed to if you have a cheapo bass you want to get rid of (or let me borrow!).
