Two of the last three, killer tones all around.
@Ric5 does some awesome 5 string conversions. Check his stuff out sometime.
My nr.1.Ibanez GWB1005; nr.2.D'Alessandro custom 5; nr.3.Fender signature Jaco.
I'm up to two now. Bought a parts/older p-bass copy, just because who doesn't need a P - right?
Well, I picked this up On Wednesday as it was delivered a day early, but I couldn't sign for it because I work during the day in an engineering office. So, the UPS hub is 5 minutes from where I work so I picked it up at lunch. Opened it up at the UPS facility. Absolutely beautiful condition. Just a slightly mark on the binding along the side of the neck at the 12th fret marker.
Got her home. Had to go to VFW meeting and then to my Bass lesson.
Got home and took it out of the case to test it out. Something was flopping around inside. It was the insides of on of the pickups. I then noticed how high the strings were. The bridge was set really high on the E string side, so I proceeded to lower the bridge, only to see that the bridge pickup cover was so high that when I lowered the strings on the E string side they hit the top of the cover.
So, I have a beautiful unplayable bass. Not all that big a deal because I planned on replacing the pickups since the rumor is on these older Stylist Basses is that they have 6 pole guitar pups rather than bass pups. However, it would have been nice to actually be able to plug it in and play it just to test her out.
When I first confronted the seller I asked in an innocent way when was the last time he played the bass and the response was 'not in a long while, and when I did it was rarely'. Then when I told him about the condition of the bass as shown above he stated the he 'played around with it before he shipped it'.
Anyway, it is in great condition and the HSC only has a nick here or there.

5 and hopefully 7 soon.
Currently seeking a Warwick Streamer Stage II and a vintage P
What a have now:
Fender AM Jazz 4
EBMM Stingray 4 classic
Warwick Thumb NT 5 Custom shop
Sandberg TM4 4 strings light aging
Fodera Emperor 5 Elite.
How Many? .... Way too many
I own two: an Ibanez SRF705 and an NS Design NXT5a.
If I had more time on my hands, I would also get a Stingray. I even know what I would want to do with it. But let's face it, the other two basses keep me super busy and it's a shame to buy an instrument that will end up gathering dust.
I own two basses:
I will probably let go the EB0, im not into short scale. And my BB434 is all I need.
I own 3 basses:
-Ibanez GWB1005 fretless
-D'Alessandro custom fretless
-Fender Jaco Pastorius fretless
Nice assortment. Got quite a range of sound covered with those 6 basses
Squire Affinity Jazz
G&L L2500 Tribute
Schechter Riot 4
ESP LTD B1005SE
EBMM 30th Anniversary Stingray5
....and can't play any of them worth a lick lol.
Back down to the core four! Feels good!
ESP LTD EX-104
ESP LTD F-5E NS
Really great guitars for a beginner like me
Just made the jump up to the next tier (10 to 20) with this:
One, my Rickenbacker. It was my dream Bass and the only one I ever really wanted. I bought it in 2002 and gig it regularly; for the last 5 years, at least twice a month.
Now, I have been a guitar player as well and have played for over 40 years. So, high end guitars, I own 5; my favorite being my LP Traditional.
If I was to add a second Bass, it would probably be a 4003s....what can I say.
I just bought a new Ebony Gibson Thunderbird, didn't need it but I couldn't resist, that brings me up to 8:
2014 American Vintage Fender Precision
1995 vintage white Fender 62 RI Jazz,
Fairly new Tony Franklin sunburst fretless modified with two volume controls.
1979 Rickenbacker 4001, mapleglo
!985 Rickenbacker 4003FL, also mapleglo
1965 Gibson EB-3, natural (done many years ago before I got it)
1966 Gibson EB-2, Cherry
2018(?) Ebony Gibson Thunderbird (I'm out of the country haven't even seen it yet.)
Down below 10 for the first time in 15 years ...
The NYC Sadowsky has really changed things since I got it 2 years ago.
But most of the old Fender basses will stay anyway
