Yup. But I play both BG and DB so I technically have 2.
This one does it for me these days. It's currently the only bass I own.
I compensate for things that what I am now, for what I missed in the past and for what I will be in the future. No honestly I can't jus have one and yes I should not have replied.
Alembic MK Signature Deluxe.
The best sounding bass I have ever had, and with a strap button
on the lower side of the Omega cut out, it even balances perfect
and you hardly notice it`s +10 lbs. weight.
Took me quite some time to convince myself of spending this kind
of money on a bass, but only regret I didn`t do it earlier.
And for those thinking Alembic is all about steril hifi sound, dial back
the filters and it speaks like the voice of God.
My '79 p-bass. though I do need a five string for my metal band. Can I have a two and only? I'm in a polyamorous situation.
Yeah I stopped chasing tone after I figured its mostly the PUPs that affect tone, rather than woods or body styles! So once I setup my #1 to be perfect for me. I was done "collecting"
If I was in circumstances where I had to downsize to just one bass, I obviously wouldn't be happy about it but I absolutely could do it. My Stingray 5HH handles every playing situation I've found myself in.
I do have my only, and last bass. The Epi EB-0. This EB-0 plays, and looks great to me. No problems here. It took a long time to find it
I still gig regularly. The last time I needed a spare was the last time I didn't have one with me......some 25 years ago. If you play for an audience regularly, you'd best have at least two.
And yes, I have those two. They are both Alembic Elan six string basses.
I guess any of my basses could be The One. I just haven't decided yet which one.
When I do, I guess I'll sell all the rest.
I think about this often, and my answer is “Yes, I have a bass I can live with as my only bass (did for years), but I’d want to modify it more first.”
The bass: 2010 Squier vintage modified precision bass TB.
The current mods: fretless conversion, Hipshot ultralights, rewound pickup, bone nut, CTS pots, thumb rest.
Desired mods: I would put the pair of super ferrite pickups from my Peavey foundation into the body as well to open up j bass sounds, and I would buy a fretted neck to swap between the two so as to get 2 basses out of the one!
I don't forsee any circumstances where i would need to downsize to only one. But if there were i would hold this one till last.
Sure do - an autumnglo Rickenbacker 4003.
I currently own 4 basses - 3 Warwicks and an EBMM Sterling...
Each one could be my only one if I was forced to only have one. Having said that, my favorite is my Warwick Thumb BO 4-string.
Yep, the Sadowsky. Before that it was my Stingray 5. Better instruments than I deserve.
I'd be perfectly happy with any of these as my one and only. If forced to choose it'd be the Dimension but I can make a great case for all of them.
Never say never but I can't really find anything wrong with my Fender Precision Vintera. It looks like a P, it sounds like a P, it's a P! It just works for me.
