    It's a tough time of year- so much shopping to do yet it seems like every music store has the best sales and the biggest inventory. What is at the top of your wish list this year? I decided to "pass my GAS" & went with lessons, & a subscription to Jon Liebman's website.

    Since I've gone from active to passive (not I, but the bass), a pedal preamp. Looking like next year for that.

    My biggest wish (although itll never happen) would be a Dingwall or a mint condition Cort Curbow . I know they are worlds apart in price but Im not greedy lol , and to be fair any Dingwall would suffice .

    Honestly...for the first time ever... NOTHING!

    perhaps just a new hard case for my guitarron. They're very fragile instruments

    Not for the holidays, but I have an upcoming "milestone" birthday, which I might be able to leverage into a bass...or two. I want a G&L LB-100 and a JB-5. I'd start with the LB-100, because I miss having a straight-up P-bass with a maple fretboard. But maybe I should join an active band first!

    Same here....actually decided to massively downsize today. I'm buying a house and due to the style of it, doesn't have a crazy amount of storage for my crazy amount of basses so gives me a good reason to sell.
     
  10. I went and got myself a Rick as a Christmas present to myself. But I GAS for more Ernie Balls. Love the quality of them!

    G&L Kiloton. I've been gasing on it since it was announced. Still not released where I live ....
     
  12. Not a bass, but I picked up a Carvin BX700 amp with the Black Friday 20% off sale for $359. I'm good on basses ... for now.

    I picked up a Barefaced Big Baby 2 this past Monday. Now the only thing on my wish list is a 2nd BB2.

    My Christmas present to myself will be a new set of pickups to upgrade my main bass (a black, visually modified, Ibanez Mikro), namely a J/P set of EMG Geezer Butler, plus a new set of saddle screws, since I ruined the slots of the old screws by using a wrong sized screwdriver to adjust intonation.

    Though I will most probably have to wait to just the other side of this year before my present will arrive.
