    I've been in the 5-9 category for a long time. I've reached the top of that range at 9 and stretching for number 10. I have had one of Bruce Johnson's AMB-2 scroll basses on order for some time. I think I'm getting closer in the queue...Bruce says maybe before the end of the year...depending on his health. For now the updated list is as follows:

    2006 EBMM Bongo 4HH - black sapphire
    1984 Peavey Fury- slant Super Ferrite, natural ash
    1994 Peavey Fury - split p, white
    1985 Peavey Foundation - natural ash
    1994 Peavey Foundation - black
    1985 Peavey Dynabass - metallic grey
    1985 Peavey Patriot - black
    1984 MIJ Squier - SQ serial number, black
    2020 Carlo Robelli B325 Uke Bass

    Still the same for me over the last couple of years

    1980 Precision
    2008 EBMM Sterling
    2017 Kiesel Vanquish 5-string

    Still looking for that lottery ticket winner to add

    Fodera Emperor 5
    Sadowsky
    Something acoustic
    Mesa Subway WD-800 and a Subway 2x10.

    I've added a Markbass LM250 and a GK 15" cab late last year. The GK is good for some of the songs we do, but a 2x10 would be better for the rest. Since the LM250, I've found out that I cannot live without a HPF and LPF.

    I prefer to sculpt my tone with those then use the EQ.

    I'm holding steady at 16...

    The fretless jazz has been sold, and a new Squier Mini P was added, so the total remains the same. I'm going to sell (or part out) the "Surf Green" PJ w/maple board soon, tho.

    I'm also going to sell (or part out) the sunburst "modern" P. The sunburst "vintage" P is a keeper. The Yamaha stick has the pickup wired directly to a jack.

  7. Hey there! Quick question: on the 2nd picture, the small bass at the top, is it one of the Fame models that used to be sold by MusicStore?
    & if so, is it good? I sent them an email cuz i couldn't find any info on those, but they never got back to me...

    It is indeed a Fame M-03, from Musicstore. I like it. The nut is 38mm, and string spacing at the bridge is 19 mm, so it feels like a very compressed jazz neck. It's tuned ADGC, and has that tubby shorty sound in spades.

    o_O I like it just fine. I don't have much call to use it these days, and I'm not really playing it in practice, but every time I picked it up in the past, I enjoyed it. I didn't have any issues with the extreme short scale. The pickup makes a very convenient thumbrest. I haven't found strings for it, yet, so it still has the factory rounds. I really should bring it here and play it more.

    Sorry, not the best picture. My basement is still a mess. Two and a half years in to the new house and I’m still being lazy.

    From left:

    Fender Duff McKagan Deluxe Precision: stock

    Fender American Standard Precision Bass: LaBella Flatwounds, ‘62 pickup, wife makeup applicators under bridge cover lol.

    Fender American Jazz: Roto 66’s, Warmoth neck, Lindy Fralin pickups (10% overwind for those midz yo)

    Ernie Ball MusicMan StingRay Special 5HH: stock

    Fender PawnShop Bass VI: stock

    Rickenbacker 4003 JetGlo: Roto 66’s, toaster pickup out of a destroyed ‘73 4001 (not mine!) and Lollar Horseshoe Bridge pickup

    Rickenbacker 4003 Walnut: LaBella Gold flatwounds.

    Not pictured:

    EDIT: Crap! Forgot my Upright!

    I have a Fender Jazz Deluxe V that I’m putting back together, albeit, slowly.

  15. I am now down to three, but mostly play two.

    Custom Atkinson "Pea" Bass, Ibanez SRMS805, and my trusty Yamaha RBX765A (my first big boy bass).

    I have 1 currently, my Peavey B-Ninety. I've got one being built for me, and after selling off a few guitars, will probably buy a Zemaitis. I don't anticipate owning more than those 3.
