    Hey hey,

    It's a happy problem actually. Two hands...10 basses. What's the best way to trim the herd down to just 3, one 6 string, one 5 and one 4?

    The problem is I play a wide range of music and feel I need the right bass for the right genre. Hahaha, how to let go??

    There's what's in the stable:
    6ers
    Yamaha Trb6pii
    Yamaha JM6

    5ers
    Warwick Boradneck Streamer LX
    Le Compte STSS
    Tune Fretless

    4ers
    Yamaha BB2004
    another Yamaha some old model passive bass
    Logan P bass
    Fender Mij Pbass strung with flats
    Bouldercreek acoustic bass

    Peace

    Rob

    Keep the 3 5ers, string one with flats. Should cover you for anything.

    Send the rest to me. Done.

    Sell them all, but a 6 string Dingwall and never look back. If you can't get hired playing that bass, then it's probably because your playing isn't up to par, not that you don't fit the 'look' or 'Fender sound'.

    Sell the ones that you play the least. Simple.

    6 strings? Dingwall? Sounds like a gig killer.

    Get a P bass. :D
