Just feel like sharing this: when I was a teenager, I begged my parents to let me start playing Bass. Finally they agreed and on February 15, 1985 I went to the local music store, signed up for bass lessons and rented a bass.
29 years later, I've owned 17 different basses. 11 are gone but here's what I currently own and use:
From left to right.....
2013 Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass 5
2004 KSD Proto J 705
1991 Fender Jazz Bass Plus 5
2012 Valenti VTJ5
2003 Fender Jazz CIJ '75 reissue (non export)
2008 Fender 50's Classic Series Precision Bass
Thanks for looking!!!
