    I'm up to 4...

    1997 L2500 Custom
    Pensa 2-band preamp installed 1998, numerous pickup switching modifications over original specs...

    Squier VMJV, 2-band preamp with passive tone control, heavy "Vintage-style" bridge, original Fender-designed pickups...

    Squier Affinity Jazz V, with VMJV neck, installed Carvin HB-wide bridge humbucker (wired in Series, can use bridge or neck coils independently) and SD Quarter-Pound neck pickup, all original passive electronics.

    '07 Dean Sledgehammer 5, installed Carbon HB pickups (routed neck pickup cavity by hand with Dremel), stock 2-band preamp with added A/P switch and passive tone control, pickups wired in series and can be switched to use neck or bridge coils independently...

    I OWN a '77 Precision Bass with a fretless Warmoth neck. It is not in my posession anymore, rather in the hands of the white trash meth head scumfuck that stole it in 2013 when our house was burglarized.

    A Warwick has been calling me. I like those Streamers...

    I've been playing my Mexi-made Squier J-Bass for about 10 years, and then there's a Mexi-made Agave blue P for the last 7. Might be time to bite the bullet on a bigger investment now that the student loans are gone.

    Those newer Mustang basses look pretty cool as well.

    Three so far, a Guitar Center Fender Special P/J, a new Fender Mustang, a 1999 DeArmond semi hollow short scale (see picture at left). Next will be some kind of U-bass. Does a Moog Taurus 3 count as another bass? These things are like potato chips, you can't have just one.

    Only 2 currently.
    Dingwall ABZ 4 and a Fender American Standard P.
  13. Wow, 5-9 is the most popular choice so far. I would need to get one of my kids to move out to find that much room in my house. That, is an idea though you know.........

    Just three. Top: Ibanez AEW Acoustic Electric. (Being worked on, as there's some damage to the body from the original owner.) Bottom left to right. 2006 Fender Deluxe Active Jazz V, 2013 Lakland 55-01, and finally a 2008 Ibanez SR535. Still need to get off my duff and put in the Nordstrands/Aquilar, and Bart MK5's and NTMB in the Lakland, and Ibanez. Just not sure which combo's I want in them yet.

    Ibanez 170 put Bartolinis on this and it sounds so much better
    Yamaha 424 meh

    Rogue 200 yeah yeah, I know. However, the bridge is actually fairly nice and a set of Dimarzios on it make it quite fun to play
