    After a bit of a hiatus playing other instruments and having a job that kept me far too busy, I have finally returned to recording and playing out at least 3 times a week.

    I have been using a Sadowsky NYC 24-5 P/J as my main bass since 2006. I've also had my upright since 1998. I used to have up to ten basses and ten guitars plus drums and other things but pared way down when I moved to NYC, as one does. While in NY I sold everything off expect for my upright and the Sadowsky.

    I started getting back into it by doing some recording with friends here and remotely across the country as well as some local studios. I wanted a nice tone bed to start with so I got a Fender Precision and Jazz again. Then this week I am impatiently awaiting the arrival of a custom Fodera Imperial Elite MG 5 from Bass San Diego. Now I have six including the upright. Interesting after having only one electric for over ten years!

    3 are now situated nicely in my stable, and most likely are staying for good. I'd love to add a PJ with rounds, and I'd be good for all my needs.


    2008 Fender Highway One (EMG GZR) with La Bella 760FS flatwounds
    2010 EBMM Stingray (2 band) with EB Group III flatwounds
    2004(?) EBMM MIJ Kanda Shokai Stingray (3 band) with EB Super Slinky rounds

    I am now up to four. I don't play all of them often, but I don't want to sell any either :bawl:

    82/83 Neck on 85ish MIJ Precision Black with Rosewood.

    MIJ Geddy neck Maple on a 2012 Lake Placid Blue Precision

    09 CV Jazz neck on a Squire CV 60's P Body Black on black with Rosewood. This one has an amazing EMG passive pickup on it.

    90's Ovation Acoustic three tone sunburst with Rosewood.

    I like that term. Once the kids move out of the house and I get to put my stuff back in the basement, I will have to use that term. Right now I suppose I’m a Spare Bedroom Bassist.

    Counting the SUB I keep at our rehearsal spot, I think that's 15. Some of these are on the block or already sold, so that should change soon!
