I just went from 5 to 3.
Is that a Good, or a Bad, thing?
I'm listing two, that would bring me down to 3 until my custom is finished.
To me, it's a good thing. I'm going broke!
It's good. I traded 2 Chinese Warwick rockbasses and one Korean Spector legend for a german Warwick thumb 5. I now own a Czech Spector, a German warwick, and a fretless Yamaha that i defretted. Not sure where the Yamaha was made.
"I'm going broke!"
Hear you on that one!
Yep, you don't feel financial strain immediately, it's like a chemical imbalance that slowly becomes evident that you screwed up somewhere. I'm doing OK, but I need to stop digging into the house fund.
Live and learn.
Back to three
Squier CV P
Am Pro Jazz
My count has changed significantly since the thread began. I’m now down to three. I did have as many as eight a couple years ago.
My previous stable had included a Conklin gt7, a german warwick corvette Fretless, a 6 string Ibanez btb, a Tune 5-string, etc.
The current three:
- Portamento Fretless 6 string
- Cheap Robelli 4-string copy of Musicman (sounds great and plays well but frets need filing on sides of fingerboard)
- peavey grind neck-thru 4 string
I’ll likely try to find a 5 string to get that deep solid thing you often hear in smooth jazz. That will round out the new stable.
Ozzie’s Music, on El Cajon Blvd.,
in San Diego. Always the sound
of Trumpets, Saxes and Trombones being tooted, honked and splatted, by beginners,
slightly muffled, from behind
closed practice cubicles.
I had been taking beginning drum lessons there, but, grew tired of the pad, and practicing paradiddles for hours.
It’s where I walked into a room full of guitar and bass guitars cases, and by chance, opened
up a Gibson case to reveal a brand new 1968 Gibson EBO Bass guitar with the Cherry finish!
It was beautiful! That Mahogany
I had been playing a cheap Japanese electric guitar, with Flatwounds, to cover the bass parts in the young band four friends started.
I bought the EBO, for $244, plus
My payments were $7.77 a month.
That Gibson morphed over the 35 years I played professionally.
It sits in it’s case in a row of guitar and bass cases.
I love that Gibson!
Kiesel LB70F fretless
I gone and pulled the trigger on Bass #5. I hope this particular addiction is not curable.
1) 1981 Carvin LB50 Koa, Stereo (I custom ordered this one, in high school, before Koa was offered on basses)
2) 2004 Fender American Standard Precision, Candy Apple Red/Black, maple fretboard
3) 2015 Rickenbacker 4003, Fireglo (Hipshot Bridge conversion)
4) 2002 Fender (Japanese) Jazz custom
5) 1985 Carvin LB40 (been looking for one of these, in red, since 1985!)
And between then and now, a Tobias Killer B 6 found its way to me. Does what I was hoping I’d find a 5 to do.
Looks pretty minty in that pic!
Last time I voted, I chose 4. This time, I'm at 10 to 20!
I feel you...
Sold my Ibanez 83 destroyer, Ibanez SRH 500, moded Epiphone Power bass II, Aria ? and an 1983 Aria P bass.
Kept “92 Charvel surfcaster, Artist AEB, SX PJ, and “92 Yamaha BEX 4. Looking to buy a SubRay 4.
So I have 4 maybe 5
And that should be it. Seriously
The current stable. Looking to get rid of the two on the left at some point.
Up to 12 with recent Dingwall L. Sklar purchase. Oops.

10 to 20
