    It seems that every bass player I know has at least one figure of a bassist. Some players are extremely into collecting everything they can get their hands on. Pictures, figurines, little wire sculptures, old German nutcrackers....you name it. Curious what my fellow TBers might have, and if you would share some images of your favorites.

    I'll start first by sharing a link to my online Museum of Bass:

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I remember seeing the taxidermy frog bass on eBay a few years back, but couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger....

    I have never really heard of doing that. Though, I do know a clarinetist who has Beethoven and Mozart action figures.

    Hey Max,
    did you receive my contributions to the museum in the mail? Sorry it took me forever to send them. They were packed and ready to go two months ago, but I was lazy about going to the post office!

    MARCO!

    Si! Grazie molto, il mio amico! They arrived last week, and have been given a place of honour in the Bass Museum. I hope that when you are in my neck of the woods again you have time to hang for a while.

    I wasn't paying attention today. And, when you said "Hey Max" it scared the **** out of my. (My name is Max to)

    It scared me, too, because my CIA code name is "Max", and "contributions to the museum" means "your cover has been blown."

    Perhaps not coincidentally, Marco's code name is "Scooter".
