    hmmmm..

    Need to do a mental inventory anyway so here we go. In order from most played to least played.

    1) FCS 62 Jazz, LPB
    2) Fender Elite Jazz in Ocean Turquoise
    3) Alembic Series 1
    4) 58 P bass, limited edition in Fire Roasted Ash
    5) Tony Franklin LPB Fretless
    6) MusicanMan Stingray Family Reserve Fretless (burst/fire roasted neck).
    7) Fender Elite Jazz in Ocean Turquoise (bought as a spare)
    8) Fender Elite Jazz, sunburst
    9) Fender Adam Clayton Jazz, purple Sparkle
    10) Fender American Vintage 64 Jazz
    11) Martin Acoustic Bass (forget model number)

    and of course my Upton Standard double bass.

    in that list of 11 basses there are at least 3 I want to get rid of, but my laziness gets in the way of selling them.
     
  12. Five

    1. 1999 Mexican Fender P Bass
    2. 1986 Jolana D Bass
    3. 2020 Harley Benton PJ-5 HTR Deluxe
    4. ???? Fender J Bass
    5. ???? ?????? P Bass

    8- 2013 Cort G5 Custom 5 stringer. Ash body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard, spalted maple top. A real beauty with bright SD Quarter Pounder J/MM pickups.

    Three (Longhorn, Matt Freeman and MIJ Precision); thinning soon to 2, since I don't need two Ps.
    Wouldn't mind to have an 4003 and EB3 though...
