    I saw a Caprice at Bass Central when I was in Florida a couple of weeks ago, and got to mess around with it for a few minutes. Really nice instrument, comfortable fast neck and easy to play. If I didn't already have a great P/J bass I'd be very interested.

    You have a great P/J but you don't have a Caprice. Right? Just pointing out the problem here.

    As always, your logic is impeccable. Nonetheless, I've been trying to teach my kids that it's better to appreciate the stuff they already have, rather than focusing on the stuff they don't. I'm having limited success with them, but the message has seeped into my consciousness and left me largely GAS-free for a while now. Particularly since I am well aware that my limitations as a bass player have nothing to do with the instruments I play. If I had a lot more money, though, I'd buy more gear, and a Caprice would be on the list. Along with an anniversary SR5 and a Game Changer, because why the hell not? But till then, I'll have to make do with the basses in my sig, all of which are awesome.

    And if you get a Caprice, I will happily read about it and look at the pictures.

    I will do what I can. It's all I can do.

    I played a Caprice. Its a very nice P/J. One of the best P/J's I have ever played. Unfortunately I am in the same boat of read and look for now. Buy, share, and play on Jack.

    I'm a left hander who plays right handed, so I guess that makes me confused.

    There ain't nothin' better than the old school tone. I like the look and the idea of the Caprice.
