5. There are never too many.
One more than I have now
What is this "too many" you ask about?
One more than you can afford.
If you have so many that you don't have any idea what basses you have...
you might have crossed the line.
(But maybe not.)
One more than you can afford??
Wish I could keep 'em all!!
One more than you currently have is still fine. After that...
Best serious answer here IMO.
Let's ask Mr. Owl.
When your GAS is cured, you know you have enough.
Well you need your standards, like P, J, MM. Then you need your exotic/expensive one(s). Then you need your gigging basses, and recording basses. Then you need your extended range basses. Then your project basses. Then your laying-around-ready-to-play-already-plugged-in bass. Then your "it was on sale!" bass. Then your sentimental value basses. And after that, they all need back-ups.
Never too many was my choice, since all basses have a difference a uniqueness if you like that separates even the same makes and models to a point where a player who has a collection of let's say Fender P basses will tell you they have a favorite player or their go to bass out of their collection.

Even though i see people with what i see as too many basses, i would do the same if i was able to.
For Herrick, There Can Be Only One. For other people? That doesn't concern me.
when they have to make a special edition of Hoarders: Life of a Bassist.... thats a little much...
If you don't have time to maintain them.
For me, two is enough, considering the cost of string replacement and maintenance.
I say that, of course only owning one at the moment.
I have three basses as well as an acoustic guitar and a borrowed electric guitar. I don't have enough stands for all of them, so I probably have too many.
Nonsense! Stands are cheap. You just need more stands!
Why would 1 even be an option as too many? If you think one bass is too many than you probably shouldn't be on TB!
