Following on from last years ever popular abstinence thread (technically still this years at time of writing) started by @Sibob I thought I’d start another for the forthcoming year, not wishing to steal the idea from Si !
I made some bold claims last year and failed within a month.
I ended up buying an amp, cases, several basses, an in ear system, pedals ( I don’t even use effects!) and other sundries, and as far as my better half is concerned they all fall within the category of “necessity” or “strings” if she asks. 😂
So this year I don’t need an amp ( unless @Bergantino Audio Want to send me a BAmp for Xmas 😂) I don’t need basses, pedals or sundries. I casually explained this to some good friends on here and after they picked themselves up of the floor laughing they suggested I should start this years thread... so, here it is.
The same gauntlet thrown down, the same rules, there are no prizes, just a huge feeling of satisfaction in January 2021 when you go off on a buying frenzy for bass related gear
GAME ON! 🏆
Its been suggested that as a bit of fun, I keep track of those who sign up and how long they last 😃 I might even throw down the challenge @Al Krowand @walshyand @dave_bass5, although I fear the FS forums might collapse if I do!
