    Well, I’m glad the option to change your vote is there. I though I was going to hold steady at two but somehow I’m up to five now. Ffs.

  6. Rickenbacker 4003 Walnut (2017)

    Epiphone Thunderbird Classic Pro IV (2018)

    Richwood P bass (first bass - that i'd had for about 20 years since I start playing, has so much sentimental value I would never sell it, that and the fact that its worth about $100)
     
  7. Which do you prefer the Fender Highway One Precision (I used to own one) or the new Player Precision (I've heard good things)?
     
  8. I'm back up to 5, with the recent acquisition of a 2001 Music Man Stingray 5. So now I've got Leo Fender's greatest hits - P-bass, J-bass, Stingray -- plus fretted (dual hum bucker) and fretless (MM) custom Roscoes. All 5-strings.

    I love em both. Higway One P has been my main player for years now. Keep in mind though, both have been modded the same way - EMG GZR pickup, Fender 70s bridge and Hipshot HB7 tuners. I’d still give Highway One a slight advantage because it has a bit better fretwork, graphite rods (super solid neck on mine) and I love nitro finish. My Player P is awesome too though, haven’t had any issues. They both share the same guts and hardware though. Stock? I don’t care for Highway One’s Greasebucket tone control, but it was alright. Player P sounded nice stock too, a bit darker, but nice. Bridge saddles were meh, but to me all the upgrades were worth it. If you find a nice specimen for either series, they’re both great.

    I’m officially down to six now. I’d like to get down to four but I’m not holding my breath! Here’s the current list in order of how much they get played
    1 - Warwick Bleached Blonde Thumb from 2003
    2 - EBMM Stingray Special 5 (2017 or 2018 I can’t remember)
    3 - Fender CIJ Geddy Lee Jazz from 2001
    4 - Lakland Skyline 55-01 from 2008
    5 - Fender Mustang MIM from 2017 loaded up with Geezers!
    6 - Spector Legend 4 from 2017.
    Numbers 1 & 2 are really special so I can’t see them ever going away. The Geddy & Mustang aren’t too far behind but the other 2 shouldn’t get too comfy!
