I received my Schecter Ultra VI a few days ago and I'm loving it. I am awaiting delivery of some heavier string sets, though, as the standard set are a little too light. Plus I don't have a bass amp so I can't, at this stage, crank it.

Continuing the spending spree, I was looking at bass-related stuff online and got to reading about the Ashbory bass. I've always been intrigued by the Ashbory but just assumed that they were expensive.

They're not. I found a site selling them for US$227, and another US$50-ish shipping to Australia. US$280-ish? That's approx $260 in Australian monies; I can afford that. I can afford that right now, without having to think about it. SOLD!

So I spent a few hours reading about them and their quirks, and I reckon I'll get enough use out of it to make it worthwhile. Plus they're tiny, so finding room for it isn't a problem.

I now own three basses, though, which is a bit of a worrying trend.
