    I Think I Want A New Bass

    There isn't much I want for Christmas or my birthday or anything; I can't really think of much that I need.

    But I'm going to get a new bass.

    Yes, I believe I am, I think a new bass would really be cool.

    In fact, I already talked to certain highly-placed sources at EBMM and placed an order.

    I think a new bass is just what I need to motivate me.

    Yup, that's what I'm doing - a new bass.

    This thread smacks of a huge tease. Bass Torture. Something wicked this way comes. I wonder just how long it will be before slightly blurry, slightly obscured photographs of some new monster are smuggled out of SLO and posted here.

    I just did the same thing. New Bongo 5HH coming my way.

    Moved both of my 4 bangers, and now will be down to just one bass. The only way I could force myself to learn 5.

    It's bound to be cool, though.

    Something we'll all get a kick out of, I imagine.

    I just picked my first new EBMM in several years for myself as an early Christmas present. Highly recommended.

    Trans green Bongo?
    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.
