So I have gone a VERY long time without buying music gear at all. For various reasons there was just no point (well, by TB standards maybe lol). So it was going to have to be a good freakin reason to make me purchase anything, and I had PLENTY of good arguments to prevent myself from buying anything, mainly that nothing really piqued my interest that much...until I saw this: Squier Classic Vibe 60's Jazz Bass in my favorite retro color...Daphne Blue. Now you can call me superficial, but I really love the color and to me it just exudes that classy 50's/60's vibe. To me, a bass in that finish makes it completely worth buying (at the right price). However I successfully talked myself out of it, for a while... 1) Nice color, but what about that neck? Gonna drop another $200 on a maple fretboard neck? *Not if I just take the one off my punk P-bass, which will look better with dark wood anyways! 2) Still $349 that you don't have to spend... *Need to trade in some unused cabs anyways, plus financing from Guitar Center! 3) The pickups MAY be good, but what if they aren't? String changes? * Those Amazon gift cards just going unused? BINGO! New pickups! Oh and those Labella Deep Talkin' flats we've been sitting on for a year, could probably go on this too. 4) When's the last time we played a gig? * Since when's the last time that mattered? ...It's arriving tomorrow TL;DR: What bass could make you start buying gear again, even if you swore off buying new stuff??
