    I just have the one - a Peavey Fury from 94. Gets the job done! Here's a pic. Amps on the other hand... might need to start paring those down to make room for bass #2.

    I’ve been thinning the herd a bunch over the last year from 17 Basses to 3 now and from 7 amp rigs down to 2. This is contrary to the usual TB way of doing things, but it was time for some changes.

    Back down to two, a P and an Ibanez 5. I gave my PJ to a friend yesterday.

    Sorry, haven't been on in a while. The Ovation looks and sounds great. It just isn't comfortable to play.

    Most of the issues that plague Ovation guitars exist with this bass too. The scooped bowl makes it slide if you sit playing down. It is also very neck heavy and the bass has a tendency to slide in a shoulder strap as well. So it doesn't get much playing time.

    I'd tried to sell it a while back and a local guy who loves ovations wants it, but we just haven't hooked up with all the quarantine going on.

    I rock, therefore I am.
    1.jpg I’m at 10, and I feel like I am mostly done. I do swap one out once in a while. I am always on the hunt for a better example of a bass I already have... i.e. a better 1954 Precision. I really have too many basses to use on a regular basis. I find I use basses for particular prjects, I’ll stick to the same two basses for a specific band. If I have one off gig, I’ll use a bass for it that doesn’t get played much.

    If the "new normal" is bartering bass guitars for aspirin and water.

    I'm good to go.

    Had a moving sale and kept four and sold three. Hard to part with but it was time. Down to a Hofner, Fender Precision , Sire V7 and a G&L 2500. That should provide enough flexibility.
