    Yup. I have 6 and I enjoy playing each and every one equally. Each has a different sound and personality (fretted, fretless, flatwounds, roundwounds, active, passive, etc.). For practicing at home I'll grab whichever one appeals to me at that moment. For band rehearsals and gigs it's a question of which bass best suits the situation.

    I've heard that the average guitarist has 7 guitars. Anything less than that, and you're being VERY responsible - one might even use the word "austere".

    It's a good place to be. Be grateful.
  5. I have a lot of basses and go through waves when I play certain ones more than others depending on gigs or current projects. I do try to keep them all in rotation and give them all some love. These daze it is my guitars that never get played by me anymore, they just don't feel right any more. I keep them more for guests to play and for recording.

    I have 4 and they all get gig, rehearsal and practice time. They all work quite well and they make me happy.
