    I only own 2 bass guitars and play nearly 1000 sets a year. I must admit that having an 1980’s Status Bass and a high dollar Alembic, a high end Warrior and Sadowsky, would be a lil pocket of happiness in my life! Oh, and a original L2 Steinberger!

    Beau Rivage casino on the Gulf Coast, top 5 MGM 1800 room hotel. Things got slow for me in LA and I'm here for a while. Fun gig for the most part.

    You have a long way to go before you qualify as being a proper hoarder. Your list is not even alphabetized!

    Ah, the non alphabetization is purposely to keep myself 1 step away from hoarderdome!

    See what I did there? ;)

    I just ordered my 48th bass. Should have it this Wednesday....a Fender Bullet that has been refinished and looks really nice. Did it on a whim. Price was $239 on MGR. @BK bassist knows I'm hopeless....:woot:
