    Exclamation KEEPERS FOR LIFE CLUB !!! Post yours too

    I've decided to make a Keeper club... sort of a pact to prevent us from moments of insanity & prevent sellers remorse!

    Rules:
    1) You must post pictures of ONLY your keepers for life with the full intention of doing as such!
    2) IF another tempting EBMM comes up... you cannot sell your keeper for it. Buy that outright too
    3) Post your story WHY its a keeper for life

    Exceptions:
    1) You moved number of strings for your band (I've been there)
    2) Stuff happens in life, bills, illness etc. Expect ridicule if you post your keeper for sale otherwise! ha ha

    So feel free to come up with any rules\exceptions but yall get the jist ! Its all for fun

    Heres mine & my story... you wont see them for sale.

    The PDN 2012 Honeyburst Sterling with the Mahogany body. AWESOME warmth for a Sterling but still retains the cut through the mix. Simply awesome for ANY band situation & tone. The pickup switch, The pickup switch, the pickup switch

    The Bongo 5 HH. Just feels like butter. Compliments on tone & looks EVERY gig. It just wows people & feels perfect in my hands. 4 band EQ is perfect to tame your tone without pulling out too many frequencies when you're in a lousy room. If you're going pre-EQ out your amp to the board, all you have is your bass EQ, its awesome

    KEEPERS FOR LIFE CLUB !!! Post yours too-jpg

    This is not my fanciest nor most versatile, nor
    was it my first MM .... but, since she was built
    on my birthday, I'm stuck with her for life :-)

    --------------------------------------------------

    EDIT:
    I spoze itz for the best that thizziz a SUB, cuz
    itz not worth a whole big pile, so selling her is
    not gonna finance some fantazmik lust ax nor
    make me rich ... wouldn't even pay the rent !
    Like they say, "cheaper to keep her" ... kinda
    sorta something like that.

    Ive almost been retarded, and sold this, for no other good reason than the thrill of buying something else, but Im trying to stop doing that, 10 years straight of buying and trading (and like 9 MM basses later) Im getting pretty tired of doing it, plus my seven year old is starting to pull my attention away from drooling at pics of basses online with sharing in his own hobbies and interests. This Sterling HH in my mind is the best of all the MM's Ive owned. It can cover alot of tonal ground, and I LOVE the neck humbucker!

    All my Rays are keepers. But this one is going nowhere fast. Bought new 1979, played professionally for a few months, stored for about 20 years and never left my study since. It gets used but only at home.
