Well, you just reminded me. I've spent an hour or two playing my new Sire Marcus Miller V7 Bass. I guess this is as good a place as any to show a NBD! Hard to tell in the photo but it is a lovely one piece ash body in a blonde finish. Can't believe the value for money here. Apart from that I picked up a used Alesis SR-16 because I'm sick and tired of the drummer in our 10 piece orchestra not turning up for practice.
