Warning : Lengthy Post I've acquired a pretty sweet collection of basses over the years. I have 5 now, and they all have their own merits and sounds. I've worked really hard and saved up to buy each one, and have enjoyed all of them. However... I've become dissatisfied. Not so much with my bass collection, but just with a lot of aspects in my life in general (won't go into great detail on that here). The more I look at acquiring stuff (not just basses) but just stuff in general...I'm starting to realize that it's exactly that : Just stuff. And then the hunt continues for that next great thing. And once you have that, it goes on, and on, and on... I recently saw this guy talking about stripping down your life a bit, and how it can alleviate stress and free up some mental capacity. He said "I don't have much stuff, but everything that I own means something to me". That resonated with me, because I can look at myself and see that I love the acquisition of stuff. That scares me, because I want to learn how to be content with what I have. I want to shift my focus from the acquisition to the tangible enjoyment of the item. And this all falls hand in hand with the fact that I'm planning a significant move (out of state) in the next year or so. It won't all be coming with me anyway, so I figure now is a fine time to start unloading some of this stuff. I've come to respect the opinions voiced on TB, so I'm asking for people to voice theirs on my 'scenario' for lack of a better term. I have an MIA P, a RIC 4003, Geddy Lee Jazz (MIM), Ibanez Prestige and an unknown Alvarez. I figure I'll keep the P and the RIC. I'm a gigging musician so I figure I should have 2 in case of emergency. The Ibanez has some sentimental value, but I can't justify lugging it around wiht me forever and ever. Has anyone culled their herd significantly before? Did it have a long term effect on the GAS level? Is it worth it? Should I keep a different combo of basses? Just looking for some advice and insight on the situation. Thanks guys (and gals)!
