    My first one : Rickenbacker 4003S/8.
    Been wanting one for a long time.
    Unfortunately, they are out of production now, and used ones are very expensive.

    Second choice : Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass
    This one's inexpensive, maybe I should count on my wife ;)

    Third choice : Epiphone Viola Bass
    Not for the tone, but just for the look : would be cool while gigging with my Beatles tribute band.
    Very, very cheap. I'm almost sure I'll have it for Xmas...

    Thanks for your welcome back, Microbass !

    You won't be disappointed : Grabbers and G3's are underrated, but they are killer basses.
     
  8. yup, i sure do love my Grabber!

    ive been wanting a G3 for years! the grabber popped up when I had the money, the need for a new base. there hadnt been any G3s up for months!!

    i'll have to pay of it with my parents, tho, but thats still cool!

    and it looks like your going have quite some christmas!!

    Did you have to sell off the P and EB?

    I sold the SR5 in June, because I needed the money to buy my new Rickenbacker.

    I finally kept all I had, except the Bass Pod (but I almost did not use it anyway).

    So at this time I still have the P, the 4003, the B-100R and the SABDDI.

    BTW, Green Day's bassist (don't remember his name) used a G3 for years.

    Would love a fretless, just something cheap to get me started. :)

    PS - Greendays bassist is Mike Dirnt
     
  12. hehe, mike d. is a big inspiration on me.

    GD are one of my top bands for that style.

    When I bought dooke and got to Longveiw, I thought.. holy hell!

    i have a bunch of videos of live performances, and while the tone there isnt as good as the record's, its still killer. personally I also love how they look!

    play lieka dream.. ohohohh... :D

    Warwick corvette standard, bubinga, active, 4 string- ordered last tuesday.
     
  16. A lot of gift certifiactes for Daddys junky music and Newbury Comics.

    As for bass gear, I have the perfect amp, and my mind changed about new basses about every week. Now I want a Carvin 5 string. Last week it was a Geddy J or the RB sig.

    I'm trying to get some Moneys from the folks for Xmas to order some Weber Speakers for my Tube rig:

    I'm getting a Michigan 12" and an 8" for each cabinet to replace the worn out ones that are currently in the cabinets.

    I also requested Rufus Reid's "Evolving Bassist" book
     
  19. An Ibanez BTB406, but I won't be getting it...my parents already got me a Peavey Mark III Head, so I guess I'll have to save up and get one myself :( I also wouldn't mind a Warwick Thumb 5 NT, but uh, that ain't happenin either.
