I know some people purchase instruments with the intention of collecting, but I've always bought basses with the intent to play them. However, my main player is a Carvin LB75. It's a great playing and sounding bass. It's "reliced" the old-fashioned way - by being on stage hundreds of times. I'd like to keep playing it for some years, but eventually, I'd like to "retire" it by hanging it up in my home office or something. I was just wondering if anyone else has made a conscious decision to retire a bass in a similar way.
