    OK, I am normally a quiet, unexcited person. Today, however, I feel the need to express my perfect week--the three basses that I will have acquired within the next 6 days. Today, a fellow TBer, Bass-only, drove down from Cleveland, OH to Mansfield, OH (where I live) to trade me his like-new MM Sterling in Cherry Burst (RW fingerboard, hardcase, newer). It is absolutely beautiful and plays like butta'. I'm holding it in my lap now. On Monday, the friendly UPS guy will be dropping off the Nordstrand SC4 (the first SC4 that Carey ever made) that I got in trade from TBer Danny R.. On Friday, the UPS guy will be delivering my Warwick Thumb Bass 4 NT that I got in a trade deal from a guy in Alaska. My hands are going to be happily filled this week! Anyone else ever had a week (or other short period of time) when they got lots of cool stuff?
  2. Starting tomorrow,Sat ,I will be getting a 3 week old Carl Thompson "no frills bass" from a TBer in CA....on mon a 51 RI fender precision from a TBer in Ohio..around wed a Birdsong Cortobass 06-47X from a TBer in NC.....and by Friday a Birdsong Cortofusion #2 (CF06-02) from Scott the builde in Texas....so as you can guess...not much sleep but going into a great Christmas !!!!!:hyper:
