What have you got GAS for at the mo?

After getting a Squire VM fretless jazz a few months ago I'm now all out gassing for a proper jazz - which is weird as I've never really liked them before but the squire's so lovely to play I'm burning for an upgrade - albeit a fretted one. Head's turned between a nice fender, the Flea sig really floats my boat, a Sadowsky, or a Marucyxyzyc;) Some cool examples of these in the marketplace for me to drool over but I'm being sensible - I won't have the funds till after Christmas.

A Yamaha BB 415 or 425. In black. I'd like to A/B it with the Peavey Foundation 5er I currently have as a back up bass and have a feeling I would prefer it. Nothing stopping me buying one, I suppose! :)

Just had a quick search and found a BB425 in black for sale - new incl. delivery - for £315 here: [url="http://www.musik-produktiv.co.uk/yamaha-bb425-bl.html"]http://www.musik-produktiv.co.uk/yamaha-bb425-bl.html[/url]
It would have been impolite not to, frankly.

A sunburst Roadworn Jazz :gas:

Unfortunately I'm only in a position to trade at the moment and the last couple that have come up have been sale only / non-receptive to my offer. sigh.......

If i didn't have one this would be top of my wish list. I love mine, it really does feel old (I have had early 60's Fenders so can compare). Good luck with the hunt.

I'm now gassing for a 90's 'ray and a Modulus Flea

It'll be something else next week though

No but I've played the bass twice and it sounds great. Saw Steve Harris playing last week and the bass looks awesome dispite the WH logo.

Fair enough. I could never have something with another team's logo on it. Always wondered if anyone but WH fans would buy that bass

P-bass GAS.

It started off as a mild interest in making a bitsa P, then maybe getting a nicer Squire & upgrading it, but why not get an American Standard as they're so heavily discounted at the minute, low what's that - a custom shop you say, ME GUSTA!

Spotted an eye-wateringly pretty Michael Kelly 5-string acoustic in the window of Johnny Roadhouse yesterday. It plays pretty well too. I can part-ex my perfectly adequate, but unexciting Vintage 4, so it doesn't really count, does it? :-)

And then there's this:

As luck would have it I'll be near there anyway this Weds - which just happens to be my birthday - and Mr Josie has said he'll pay for anything I want, within reason - so unless it turns out to be a real dog when I get hold of it, that's sorted :-)

MInd you, he doesn't understand owning seven bass guitars as being "within reason", so quite what he'll think of a eighth will be "interesting"... but not my problem.

I'm obsessed with the idea of a fairly bashed-about Capri Orange P-Bass, almost to the point of creating one from bits or from an older Japanese copy. Does anyone else get that kind of random but really specific obsession going on?

Just a reminder...

My 'faker is almost done, my fretless P is done (apart from logo), my Partscaster is there or thereabouts.

Next, I want to restore another 'faker.

Then I want to restore a real Ricky, or maybe get a custom build soundalike.

I'd also like to build a Tele.

Apart from that, no plans... ...except, (sigh).
