JLY, "level-headed and patient" comes from having written the bass off, as seventhson did. On top of that, it would be both unhealthy and unproductive to stay stressed out/angry for years on end. Note that I wouldn't call my attitude sanguine -- it's more like "never say never". Oh... good point about storage space: I happen to be running low, so I may let one of my basses go should the Huff arrive. I'll ping you first if the odd man out is a Sadowsky, but there's not exactly any urgency just yet.
