    I was deprived as a child, that's my reason and I'm sticking to it

    Andreas Vollenweieder plays bass on harp as well as lead melody on the treble strings, similar to piano.

    I feel much better now. I just purchased #38 to celebrate wife #2 filing. Seems I have room to grow. Lol

    The DP127 ? You'll love them, I have them and they are great.

    I bow to you, you couldn't have said it any better.

    I feel so inadequate. I don’t have a hundred of anything.

    ;)
     
  10. @MirandM not the DP127, I ordered the DP122.

    Do I have a number in this club? I thought I joined a while back but never put it in my signature...

    I'm sick and I know it. Among the 35+ basses I have selfishly collected, about 20 of them are old school Peavey's.
    Here's a Peavey family pic from a few months back...as in more have been added...:cool:

    Another Peavey fan, GREAT!
    Well your number here is the amount of basses you have :D since it didn't actually start as a club, but I've been sort of promoting this thread as such and I really think we are a bit of a club here.
    So welcome and be sure to get a room at the HOBDIP :)

    So is anyone else #11 right now?

    Otherwise, I guess that's my number.

    If there are other 11's, y'all are simply using a superscript, from 0 thru aleph-null.:thumbsup:

    BTW, Nigel Tufnel would approve!

    You have more inventory than most bass stores!

    I don't know what to say other than we now tell our significant others: "Sure I have 8 or 9 instruments, but it could be a lot worse....check out this guy's collection!"

    I think the Ox would be proud though....

    Yup, might be.

    Mine is #40, according to my bass-sheet.
    Last year I bought 7 basses.
    This year I'm stuck at 4, in the first two months, after that I got seriously sick (BHPD is a healthy condition for me) and didn't buy any. I'm trying hard to recover and find another one to add. GAS list isn't very helpful either as it only has a double bass (no upright) on it.
    Oh, I almost forgot I still have the "el weirdo shorty" project to finish. That would be 41.

    Well #41 is not gonna be "el weirdo shorty", but most likely my just new acquired Fakenbacker.
    Why another one? BHPD it seems...
    This one is a red transparent one with maple neck, from the looks of it, 33.25" scale, neck thru, seems decent. Seller has good reviews and is active since 2018. Now all I have to do is wait for the seller confirmation and if he's able to send it as I said. That would mean around 100€ lower costs.
