I thought it would be interesting to hear about "the one that got away". We bassists sometimes get GAS so bad that we do really stupid things and sell equipment that we later really regret. Or maybe something you had in the past that would be worth a small fortune now. The two that come to mind from my past was the day I sold a 1973 Rickenbacker 4001 to buy an Ibanez Roadstar . Granted this was in 1979, but I can look back now and say "What was I thinking?" The other wasn't a bass but has to be the stupidest thing I've ever done equipment wise. In 1976 a friend sold me a pristine 1964 Gibson ES-335 for $100. (Even then it was probably worth $600.) and six months later a GAS attack had me selling it for the same $100 . "What was I thinking?" I could try to argue that since both of these incidents took place in the '70s that I got "smarter" as I got older, but it's not true. When I get GAS I still do stupid things, just nothing quite as memorable at the 2 mentioned above. GAS can be a terrible thing!
