You’re joking, but another way to look at it is that when you sell an instrument you don’t play, you’re giving it a chance to find a home where it’ll be played and actively loved, not just suspended in time.
Very “Toy Story 2,” I know…
I'm at 2, I want to add a few special basses! Especially one I parted with years ago! 2004 5 string FNA Jazzman LTD, Loved the sound of that bass! And a couple others I've heard!

American standard jazz basses – I have two, One fretted one fretless. Both sunburst with Rosewood. One is from 2010 one is from 2015 I forget which.

I also have six uprights including a travel bass and two old Kay ‘project basses’. And five cellos including an electric cello and a couple of projects.
Is 385 too many basses for one man to own? Been collecting for 30 years. Many of them are very old fenders starting with my 1951 Tadio Gomez / Leo Fender Models. I also have my father's collection and his brothers collection. Only 170 are really mine the rest I inherited. I have over 85 amazing instruments on loan to Hard Rock Cafe's all over the United States so others can enjoy them. All 85 belong to very famous guitar and bass players... Believe it or not the 170s that I have I play all of them and cycle through them so they all get love. I just had to move because I couldn't even walk in my house anymore. LOL
It's a sickness worse than drugs LOL. This week I bought a 1983 fender precision bass elite cherry starburst and a 1957 fender PbassWhere I already have two of them in my collection. And I got a great deal on a 1968 practically brand new fender telecaster bass with all the original hangtags and case candy. I have a sickness for the antiques I feel that if I don't buy it somebody else is going to buy it and not love and respect it the way I will that's why I have so many. I am not spoiled I work very hard for my money and investing in old Ufenders is a great investment. Nobody ever paid my way for Anything in life. I own a very successful custom tattoo studio which is what affords my bass buying madness
365 is the absolute limit. Every fourth year we’ll allow a 366th, but only for one day in February.
Wow. I guess we can close this thread now
One more as of two weeks ago

4 in use two relics, no adding only switches or my family kill me...
I'm down to THREE now, and one of those is still over in Germany getting built! (I paid a hefty deposit so consider it 'owned'...) But today I was cleaning the closet and found three brand new bass necks in boxes. And I have a lot of bass parts laying around too. So not sure what the future might bring - even though LOGIC clearly indicates that 'one for rounds, one for flats, one for tapes' is really enough basses for me!
I am speechless...
Is 385 too many?
I am probably the only one here who will say this, but: Yes!
I will agree and say yes as well.
As long as you have the right sized house - no.
