Why Do I Torment Myself? (With Schecter Bass Guitars…)
Every time I receive Musician’s Friend’s “Guitar Buyers Guide” in the mail, I know I should throw it in the recycle bin and not look at it. But for some reason I always look at it.
And it is torture. I want but can’t afford (given all my other bass guitars) a Schecter 5-string bass guitar. I have played one before and it’s just a wonderful instrument to play.
So then I see they are having a clearance on the Schecter Riot 5- and 6-string basses at Musician’s Friend. $1,400 basses for $600…
It’s such a great opportunity to get the bass I have always wanted. But, I don’t have $600. Or I should say, the $600 I have was long ago earmarked for things like rent and gas.
I have to keep reminding myself that my current basses are all excellent instruments (with the exception of the Dean acoustic/electric beater, but that was meant to be sturdy, not sound or play good – it does what it is supposed to do!) and I am never wanting for groovelicious bass guitar sounds with the instruments I have.
Yet, there it is, taunting me from the glossy pages of the Musician’s Friend “Guitar Buyer’s Guide” – The Forbidden Schecter Bass Guitar.
Sometimes ignorance is truly bliss.
