We're down to 6 as the OLP has been sold.
Are you sure that's not a BB415?
Moved the G&L and replaced it with a BSX Allegra Hollow body 5 string EUB. Wife thinks I'm nuts. She's seldom wrong...
That's a beauty, Harold!
Looks great ! I guess it's a high C instead of low B, right ?
Btw: what's the scale ?
I own 1 because I don't need another one.
I would love to own a custom Thumb NT 4 fretless one day.
Scale length is 41.5” or there about. It is currently strung EADGC but they come from the builder BEADG and are 1/2 size strings. Many 3/4 size strings work well and lots of owners actually prefer them. The current strings are 3/4 Corelli's designed to allow bumping (or so I’m told). I’ve tuned them both ways and while it’s very passable played pizzicato, pizzicato BEADG it is pretty fine! My biggest concern is going to be finding the appropriate hypo-allergenic strings to play with low B tuning, not sure they exist. The silk section at the tail piece needs to be pretty short (~5”). The glove thing is a pain!
I suggest to stuck with the EADGC tuning. My EUB is tuned the same at 42" scale. The high C helps to avoid the thumb fingering and provides more options for soloing.
No pictures, didn't happen.
those are the pictures?
Nice group of low end thump. Thanks for sharing.
I'm up to five now. Just added this Fender Player Jazz bass limited edition:
I really need to take a bass family photo now!
A beauty it is. A Player Jazz is my next target.
Strumming fingers lookin for that family photo.
Man why so much? It just cost alot on strings and maintenance.
I rather own 1-3 expensive instead of 23 lowballers imo. No offense my man.
To each their own
Sure but a slightly more substantiated argument would be nice
There’s no argument. You are who you are; you like what you like. ‘Nuff said.
Personal preferrence really isn't debatable. One could turn the arguement back on you as to why you feel the need for three expensive basses and not enjoy a variety of basses and the tone/sounds offered by each.
Its a matter of preference, you know, to each his own...
Or, her own...
I don't have 23 basses (yet...), but I'll chime in here.
If you do your own maintenance the cost is mostly just time... with a movie and a beer, that's not so bad.
As for strings, when we're talking about an instrument I rarely play (and never play outside of the house), I don't feel the need to replace them regularly just because they may sound a little dull. I'll let strings go pretty long between changes if I'm not using them often. If the bass has flats, I really just don't worry about replacing them... and I have a preference for flats
So yes there's some extra cost, but it's not that much in the grand scheme of things. I would imagine PizzaFiend isn't keeping those 2 dozen basses all in gig-ready condition.
