    2002 LTD B-204FM
    1989 Peavey Dyna Bass (USA) - Five string

    Update: Lean and mean with only 2 for awhile. The Korean LTD is such a wonderfully built instrument - what a great find at the time! The Dyna-Bass (ver. 1) is amazing and quite comparable to Fender USA basses.

    i have a newer Peavey Millennium. oddly the branding on the headstock was painted over. asked the lady who i bought it from and she said she got it from a music school that went under, and that she had a hagstrom guitar like that from the same place.

    it’s not the best bass i have had, but it does it’s job and plays good.

    I just added my count to the poll: 2 basses here. Yamaha RBX 374, circa 2008 or so, and a 2017 Fender American Professional P. Haven't touched the Yamaha since I bought the Fender a year ago. It's everything I want/need in a bass!

    I had to change my vote from 4 to 3, I sold my acoustic bass, and I've an Am. Std. J body waiting for a proper neck. I might experiment a bit on that one!

    Going up to 4 now.. or 5 if you add in the EUB I got as well. I think I better stop before this gets out of hand (again). :bag::help:

    3 made in the US, but none from the same brand + one nameless P-bass.

    i suck at bass but will never give up
    I've got a beautiful 4003 in Fire Glo. I am hoping to find a dark blue though. My absolute favorite Ric.
