    For about ten years I had only two (Warwick Corvette $$ 5-string, Line 6 Variax 4-string). Then I sold them in 2017 when my life was turned upside down due to financial fraud. I thought I was done with music at that point. But of course once a musician, always a musician, so a couple of years later I felt that itch again.

    Now I'm at four basses:

    Music Man Bongo HH 5-string (Firemist Gold)
    Fender Mustang PJ (Surf Pearl)
    Ibanez SRH500F Aerium fretless 4-string
    Samick Greg Bennett Corsair MCR-1 (black) (This one is still on its way since it's back-ordered)

    I think it's going to stay at just four for a while, since I've got all my bass needs covered for now.

    After all the years I've been here @TalkBass, I've finally made it into the 10-20 club -- for better and worse! Newest: phaux Phender stack knob J5 built by hand by a local friend.


    I've had it a few months now but forgot to update this thread.

    Oh... the bass is genuine seafoam green, but my phone camera turns it blue under indoor light. :(

    I had 4 basses for a while : 73' Jazz Bass, 66' Precision, 5 strings Tobias (one of the few made by Mr Tobias himself), and a Martin acoustic bass. And then for a new project I bought a James Trussard. And then I needed a bass that I'm not affraid to damage for pub gigs so I bought a nice 80' Tokai PB. And that makes 6...

    I got me a Butter Cream Fender Jazz in the mail today. I’ve been playing bass for almost 30 years and this is my first Jazz! I also bought a roasted maple Fender neck for it that I have to put on.

    I have medical issues so I cannot play out anymore, so over the last year I’ve really stepped up my equipment game to give me something to do.

  20. Here is a shot of my kids. May be moving on the Yammie and the blue L2000 soon - they go mostly unloved and I have a few projects I want to do with the $ but currently this is the clan.
