    Actually, what did cause me to pull the trigger was the "Bill Me Later" feature. I am pretty sure I can come up with the money within 6 months, lol. I have wanted a Style 1 for a long time, and in fact, I NEARLY bought one instead of my Style 2. I am kind of a Tortoise Shell junky. Almost all of my basses have Tortoise Shell pickguards, which is funny since I HATED it when I first started playing bass. Some of my bandmates have even said things like "That new Toyota is nice, but couldn't you get it with a Tortoise Shell pickguard?".

    ha...and a lawyer!!!!

    beautiful looking uke mate. I'm a bit of a toroise shell junky too. Your last comment reminds me of an Aussie band I virtually worshipped through the 90's called Smudge. When I finally got married and we had our first child, friends were genuinely miffed we didn't call the baby "Smudge" as well. (we settled on Jemimah)
