That collection makes me green with envy. So much envy I could almost burst.
but if I ever get a job again Jimmy Coppolo and I are going to build a 4 string active jazz so i can explore new sonic horizons
Well... Up my previous score by 1 cause...
Found a EB-0 on Ebay by accident and since the EB-3 was feeling left out as the only Epi I did what any responsible dad would do and got a lil sister on the way.
Also comes with the cruddy practice amp, bag, tuner , and gasp a song book!
For 83.00 I gotta say yeah even if the electrics are crapped up its worth it. Gotta see what the finish looks like before I decide if she stays as is or becomes my next mod project.
Ditto. I have 15 currently after a recent spree that resulted in a cavalcade of G&L’s being added to my harem of EBMM basses.
Currently 7 G&Ls, 7 EBMM and one lovely Fender AVRI 63 P Bass.
Also thankful for a loving, supportive and tolerant wife and best friend.
Ditto. It's actually given us something to do together. My wife is on disability and really doesn't get out much due to her conditions and while I am content to simply play cards on Thursday night and Golf on Sundays I feel bad going and doing things while she is at home. Enter the basses... I,ll fire up Rocksmith, Go Play Along etc and stream to the TV in the family room and hook up the karaoke machine and ill play tunes, which I wanna do anyway, and she will have the lyrics up on the screen and she will sing. She brightens right up. Music.. the best medicine even if it's Bad Medicine.
Amen to that brother. I’ve been at home waiting on back surgery scheduled for 5/7 and basses and music are what’s help retain my sanity and keep me from depression for the past four months.
only thing i can say is; nice play them

Dammit! I had to up my count from 4 to 6 as 2 new additions are coming on monday. I'll get back to 4 in a few months though. That's my limit.
I have an incredibly hard time selling them off once I get one that I really enjoy playing. I jam quite a few times a week with different projects and gig a few times a month with my main band so none of my basses have yet to become closet queens,
I keep almost all of them in steady rotation. "almost" because I have a single fretless, and a single 6 string just for the novelty of trying to get competent on them every so often. I'm a 4 string player and have always been.
There's a part of me that always wonders am I doing myself a disservice in switching up different basses all the time as each one has a slightly different feel / playability. I wonder if I spent all my time playing only 1 or possibly 2 of my favorite basses would that allow for my playing be more proficient (even if just slightly) as I assume I'd grow more and more comfortable on that single instrument's individual feel?
I also find that the difference between basses is WAY more prevalent when I'm standing and playing (with the bass on a strap around my neck) as opposed to sitting down while playing. The variations in each instruments shape and reach doesn't seem nearly as pronounced in that case.
Any input on whether continuously playing on / practicing with a single bass adds to a players proficiency?
I am still under 10 and I think that would be enough in this lifetime.
Had to change my vote.... I just finished building this one, she is #21 ...
Nice, What's that Sandberg sound like? I noticed the giant pole pieces.
up to 39 now...added these within the last 2 weeks...

As a hubby to a chronically ill wife who doesn't sweat my GAS, this hits me right in the feels. You're a righteous dude!
The EB-0 arrived today. I was sweating it due to it being an eBay purchase, used, and being shipped by the current owner. Gotta say..just wow. the packing would have protected eggs and this thing looks brand new. In fact it looks so good that my plans to use it as a base for a mod have changed and she will stay exactly like she is and be the lil sister to the EB-3. Hell I even like the looks of the crappy little practice amp that came with it. Will it ever replace my Eden? No but it and the Squier amp will go out into the workshop to test and tune on the guitars I build in the shop as soon as I get everything straight out there.
Well, I'm back up to four. I played a five-string version of Nolly Getgood's signature Dingwall bass at a guitar show a couple of years ago and was intrigued. When I saw this four-string version pop up in the classifieds, I decided that it should live with me for a while:
Still at four; sold the Squier VM Jazz fretless after buying a Cort Artisan B4FL here on TB.
