I also have a 1989 Fender Fretless Jazz and a 60's Aria Beatle bass on loan from a friend.
Ain’t nuttin slummin’ about That trio!
When I grow up I wanna play that beautiful powder blue Mustang!
I’m up to 8 and don’t know if I can fit another one in the closet.
Once I sell the 5 string sibling of the jazz bass below (consecutive serial numbers even!) I will be down to 2 basses after peaking around 9 over the last few years.
I’m sure someday I’ll end up with more again, but for now I’m very happy with these two.
I have 11 strings of bass right now. An Ibanez SG Gio 6 string and the basic bitch cheapest Ellefson Jackson 5 string. Would love to add a 5 or 6 string graphite neck bass in my price range like a Peavy GV.

Fender Precision body w/ EGC neck

A few have come and gone. Some REALLY GOOD ONES, better than theses. We all have had some get away that we wish we had back but these sound and play well.
Ok so I order #18 but the order was cancelled because the bass was damaged in shipping. So I was offered a deal that I could not pass up. #18 arrived today. Electronics were not working and 3 machine keys were broken. I cracked it open and found so easily fixable wiring problems and she roared to life. I was able to tune it using a ignition wrench set up was good I played it and it sounds great so Xmas will bring new machine heads and a some strap locks still needs to be cleaned up but here she is
