    6 months ago, I had no basses, just guitars. Then I started hanging around here...and THIS is the result:

    I hardly even pick my guitars up anymore. All I want to do is play THESE things.

    Now aren't you ashamed of yourselves? You've been VERY bad.

    GO TO YOUR ROOM!

    Yeah, I started with a cheap Ibanez, but since I've been on this site I have been through so many basses. It is a curse and a blessing.

    Curse: So much gas

    Blessing: Gives me a multitude of information and an oportunity to try equipment I otherwise would have never discovered.

    I started with 1 bass and a 200 watt Yamaha combo amp, have gone through the full stack stage, and now have 4 basses (3 of which I am happy with) and a full stack light weight rig with a 5 piece pedal board and the beginings of my own PA (currently have monitors, working on power amp and mixer)

    Somehow I sense you guys are all the type who shows up at a raging house fire with a jerry can of gasoline.

    Thanks for the "help"...

    "All short scale?"

    Yep. And all strung with light flats. That's what feels most comfortable to me. Also helps cover some of my technique shortcomings as a newb.

    Hi,

    Nice start! Thanks for sharing.

    Now all you need is a 5 string, a 6 string, and an acoustic bass guitar. Or maybe a couple of each. ;)


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    BassCliff

    It doesn't do any good to struggle. There is no escape.

    When I complained to the wife how y'all have victimized me, she just rolled her eyes. Pretty sure that means she absolves me of all responsibility in the matter.

    That's the standard way that women convey that thought, right?

    Nice basses, but I see a few color options missing, you'll need to add to your collection.
    Yes, don't stick around too much, I had 1 bass three years ago, thanks to TB, I ended up going through over 50 and keeping 14. People here are too helpful in getting you sucked in. I bought a number of basses I've never even heard of thanks to these folks.

    Uh....ye-yeah..that's right, uh-huh.

    If it makes the OP feel better, I was happy with 2 basses for decades(!)
    ..Then I found this place. I learned what G.A.S. meant.
    I currently own 10 electric basses,3 electric and acoustic guitars and rent an upright. Not to mention 3 Kurzweil keyboards and a bunch of amps and cabs.
