    My current 4 basses. All 30.5" scale to fit my average sized hands. I have 2 more on the drawing board. A semi-holliw ric330 and a 30.5" scale travel bass that will fit in a strat case.

    You mean, at this moment?

    4x4 (4 and 5s) but local dealer has two others I'm looking at and Santa cheaped out, so
    I may go shopping at any time...who am I kidding...I may go bass shopping at any time.

    Wife hasn't left me yet and I already belong to one 12 step program...so.

    More than 2-3 is expensive in strings rotation.....very expensive, a mounted string last at least no more than 1 year, with 20 a strings capital....

    Are you kidding? My Peavey T-20FL is now 35 years old, changed the strings in the first year and they are still on it, keeps tuning fabulously (6-10 months without touching) and still sounds the same. Ok I don't do gigs and no rough stuff, but only one year? I'd have to disagree with that.

  12. Just got my 4th bass today.. yay, I am catching up to some of you..lol
    And I am still amateur, although I can play a few more good tunes now (Gary Moore "Midnight Blues", Stevie Ray Vaughn "Crossfire") I am up to being able to play 5-7 songs from memory. Lol, got a long way to go, but beginners luck. lol new toy.jpg

    By any chance is that Kalamazoo a red KB1? My first bass was a well worn, blood red KB1.

    I must say that is crazy with all the PEavey bases you own.I do know Peavey has great Quality for their price. I am not one to talk because I have six bass amps and seven bases. I am not worthy of having all that

    That post is almost six years old. The only bass I still have on that entire list is the Mike Lull M5V. Pared down my entire collection from 26 to 6.

    The max. I've had at the same time have been 3, but I currently own these 2 only:
    - Ibanez SR 506M
    - Yamaha TRB 1005

    Both of these cover most of my needs as a bassist, but I'm guilty of planning on getting another one sometime this year, because of G.A.S.
