Nitro basses are kind of rare and expensive by today's standards. I suffer from G.A.S. like most of you, but it seems to have stopped with my basses. I used to have 15 different basses, all of them being poly painted modern basses. I picked up a Fender 71' P bass last year and I can't keep my hands off of it. Argument of just nitro vs. nitro over poly aside, this bass rocks. I have since sold all of my basses and currently have two 71' P basses and one 62' Reissue. They are all beat, worn down and amazing. I can understand why people like a shiny new bass. But my three basses have relieved all of my GAS. As I get older, I'm starting to realize that the less you have of something, the more you enjoy it. I'm enjoying these 3 basses more than I have ever with my previous 15.
