Current herd.Subject to change!!!
Have six in my possession at the moment, three beauties on layaway, which will bring the total to 9 in the near future!
For those in the 6 or more bass group, how many of those get more than 50% of your playing time? Do most get rarely played or is the love spread around? For me, 1/3 of my basses get more than 2/3 of the usage. Makes me think about thinning the herd -- until I grab the outliers and enjoy their qualities again.
Of my 9+ basses, the p bass gets the most usage by far. Early 50's single coil p bass next. Fretless with jazz bass pickup I just keep for the occasional need for that tonality. OM hollow body is used almost never. All are made by me and are 30.5" scale with Chrome Flats. The two I use the most are 5lbs 9oz and 5lbs 14oz due to chambering. No F holes. Assymetrical V-shaped neck. All are neck-thru. I will be posting some on the classifieds soon. I seriously need to thin the herd. My bass rig is tech21 VTBASS and QSC power amp. No pedals. No reverb. Just clean motown funk.
Updated photos of the herd. This is the first photo set with most of em here.

Some little no name that I can find short scale that I keep handy just to thump around on...
And my first bass, a Winston, whatever that was.
It was great to use this Fender P with Status neck in the studio the other day!
at the moment, i'm on 2, but, i guess, some ~9 would fit my real needs
That kinda depends...
Is that white, eBay $17.99

I tried a fretless version of these and loved how it sounded. Even unplugged it sounded great.
