wow!! seeing how many basses some of you own.
i own 8 and 3 of them i would love to take to the grave.
Rickenbacker 4001 AzureGlo 1973
Rickenbacker 4003 FireGlo 2010
Rickenbacker 4003 SW 2016
those bellow are currently collecting dust
Ibanez ergodyne 97 model
Hohner accoustic bass.
+ 1 - G&L Tribute LB-100
Just counted them; 20. Maybe 21 if you count the Ibanez RB850 I loaned to my nephew on the condition he learns to play, or it comes home.
And 4 guitars.
One will never go; the Steinberger XL2 I bought new in 1986.
I have a list of 8 I'm going to advertise for sale, and a short scale Samick I'm going to give to my bass teacher as he trains a lot of younger students.
A mere two, both Fender Aerodynes in different colors. I would like to get a StingRay 4HH this year, probably in that beautiful maroon mist color they were demoing at NAMM. Saving money for that is one of my goals for the year.
It's probably a good thing I don't have 10s of thousands of dollars of disposable income. I bought a bass amp from a rich dude once. He showed me his basement full of gear. There must have been 50 instruments and amps there. I would totally do the same thing if I could.
Investing in art is one way people make sure their money is not watered down by inconsistent fiat currency and that their investment will go up rather than sit in some bank earning peanuts.
I have 11 electric basses. Pretty much old Fender basses with a couple odd-balls mixed in. I am way into 1951-1957 P basses. Three of my basses are pre-cbs, the oldest is a ‘52 (T.G. 12-17-52).
My latest acquisition is a frankenbass - 1969 Fender Telecaster Bass neck with a 1998 Fender P-Bass body (black w/ tort). This bass rocks hard!
A modest 6 on my end.
You are a good person.
Just picked up a Sterling by Music Man Stingray 5 (NBD post coming soon)
It joins by Warwick Katana and Dean acoustic.
For as little as I paid for the Sterling, really impressed with it!
I currently have 13 basses, including a U-bass and a standup. I've also got 33 guitars.
And I've just retired, and have to move all of them from NY to Texas once I find a place to live down there. It's not going to be fun.
I own 3 currently: A 63 pbass, a 72 pbass, and a CS Pino Palladino P. All Ps but all so different.
Changed my vote. I just got my 3rd bass, a black Fender Kingman. Joining an orange Mustang P/J and a Squier VM Jazz Fretless.
I've got 4 right now, but I'm trying to get back down to 3.
Just came into my third--a Schecter Stiletto Stealth IV. Love the weight and feel, but I'm not in love with the electronics. I figure that's changeable.
It joins a '01 Agave Blue P-Bass and a '94 Squier Series Jazz Bass.
I'd probably look to move on from my '94 J, but it came from my brother, so it stays.
