    Heh, I got major GAS for some stuff, but my parents are like sell one before you get another - I only have 2.

    and I was just going to buy another SX...>_<

    But you bought all that? Donate to the Ming needs another bass foundation?

    Funny, I didn't really think its was an active gear year until I wrote everything down after reading this thread. Bottom line. mostly subtractions:

    • '92 MIA fretted 5
    • '98 MIA fretted 4
    • '98 MIM fretted 4
    • '00 SRX505 fretted 5
    • '02 GT-7 wine colored, bad frets
    • '01 GT-7 natural, just didn't feel right
    • '90 SCG Nanyo Bass Collection fretted 4

    • '02 FBB fretless 6 #00-020
    • '02 GT-7 wine (in the out list above)
    • '01 GT-7 natural (in the out list above)
    • '02-GT-7 - this one is definitely a keeper

    Probably soon-to-depart:
    • '04 Brice Z6NT fretted 6
    • '68 Goya J knock-off (re-hab bass, almost done)

    Bottom line, by the time this is done, I'll be down to the GT-7, the FBB fretless 6, and an '86 MIJ Power Jazz Special 4.
  16. after reading all of this, i realize that i am soooooooooo poor!
