    Right now...3.

    1)Fodera Victor Wooten Signature Monarch, 4 String, Buckeye Burl top.
    (never gonna lose this one)
    2)MusicMan StingRay 5.
    3)Lakland 5502
    *2 and 3 are black body, maple neck.

    *I'm thinking of selling the StingRay and the 5502 and upgrading to a Lakland 5594dlx.
    Unless someone has a better idea for a 5 with a KILLER B.

    3 basses: Fender Performer PJ (flats), Fender Professional Jazz Fretless (tape-wound) and SBMM 5-string (rounds). Had a Ric 4003s but we never quite hit it off so she left...

  10. I'm up to 31, one for each day of the month, but I wouldn't be surprised if there's some folks here that have one for each day of the year. There's no such thing as too many basses - 4,5,6,7,+ strings, fretted, fretless, etc . I also suffer from Bass Building Syndrome, so a good chunk of mine are homemade from scratch or assembled from parts. Here's a few of my somewhat atypical 4 string creations.

    when I get my new mod-shop Fender P, it will be 7, one for each day of the week.
    I rarely do family shots, because they sometimes come in and out pretty quickly around here.
    But keep my "score" up to date in my signature.

    2 Fenders (60s jazz reissue and a walnut/roasted P being built)
    2 G&L (L-2500 and El Toro)
    1 Sadowsky (NYC JJ)
    1 Spector (NS-2J)
    1 Acinonyx

    Ibanez SR500E
    Yamaha BB734A
    ESP LTD B-204SM Fretless
    Sire Marcus Miller U5

    Since this post I’ve added a Cort C4 Plus and an Ibanez BTB7 to the crew, that’s probably
    All I need for basses for a while. Now to get some Darkglass into my amp choices...

    I sold my StingRay 5 and my Lakland 5502.
    Will most likely be picking up a Mike Lull MV5 in natural, with
    Bartolini's and an Aguilar onboard preamp. It's used, but looks and plays
