    Very cool. I'll never get rid of the Lindsey basses. I had 6 at one time, but I only kept the ones I commissioned. I actually wouldn't mind having two of the Lindsey Jazz basses that I got rid of back.

    Technically 4 but two aren't working:
    30+ year Headway Riverhead headless Steinberger copy (unknown date, non-working)
    Stagg fretless (also non-working electrics and a warped neck)
    Washburn XB125
    G&L Tribute SB-2

    Plan to get at least 2 or 3 more, some sort of Jazz and a short scale and a different fretless, all three could be Squiers!
  7. I still have my first bass but I've bolstered the ranks with another two but one is currently taken apart to restore.
    1. SX Ursa 1 (Got this back in 2012 and it's certainly seen some action, both studio and live. It's got a nice round sound but doesn't really sit too well in a mix.)
    2. 1986 Peavey Fury 4-string (Got this one last year but haven't gotten it fixed yet due to monetary issues. It's currently a conversational piece.)
    3. 2017 Ibanez GSR200 (My current pride and joy and the first active bass I've owned. I'm currently using this out live as my main bass, with the SX being a backup. Has a nice clear, punchy tone with the bridge pickup and the neck pickup is pure sex.)

    Well I had this delivered this past Wednesday. Rhapsody 4 string active with EMG's and Trans Blk Quilt. Decent Shape. Paid $230 plus $20 shipping. One of the knobs isn't original, but a close match. I know I'll have to replace it though as my OCD just won't let me alone about it. Finish is in great shape but needs a cleaning. Came with a Gig Bag and a strap, though neither were advertised in the sale. Nothing fancy, but hey some extra swag! Here are the sellers pix.

    Used to be two 4 stringers when everyone I played with was using standard tuning. Now, with the older vocalists I've been dealing with, tuning to E flat has become a thing.

    However I don't want to change the setup on my original two basses. So I bought two more 4 stringers for E flat tuning :)

    Gave up 5 string basses years ago (nothing wrong with them, I just prefer 4 string necks and rarely needed that low B), thus this route.
