Well the bass...


needed some repairs, used instruments usually find a way to bite you one way or another, so its at the shop for an endpin (that's the piece at the bottom of the bass used to raise and lower the instrument and hold the tailpiece/string assembly in place. Oh well, I knew it was coming and once again I'm reminded to enjoy things but not to make idols of them because they all, no matter how good they seem at the moment, pass away. Point taken.

But if you didn't repair it you wouldn't love it as much. :)

This is true, new parts are part of the process of fitting for yourself. I guess I'm disappointed in the music store for not checking out or caring for instrument as they should've but that's the way it goes. By the time I get done it will have new strings, new tailpiece, perhaps a new fingerboard, and for sure a pickup for those times when it can't cut the mix.

This repair just seemed too soon.

Oh well.

Too soon...yep. My son's "new" car that is 25% paid off needs 2,000. worth of clutch, axle and engine work that he can't afford. It sits in the driveway now. sigh.
