whats your favorite and why?
Had to change my vote 'cause I've added thre basses in the last few months, so currently at twelve:
Cool, that means you can play one for two hours and then switch. Easy scheduling.
Great ! I'd take the Classic Stingray with Status neck.
Hard question to answer because there is so much variation on so many levels in the collection.
But if I had to pick a #1, I'd say it's a '62 MIJ reissue Frankenbass, Warmoth tele neck and Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder pups. Which was a late night, drunken $650 accepted offer. Something about that bass is just sublime and it feels like a well worn pair of bluejeans, it's just so comfortable with BEAST tone.
I mistakenly thought owning three basses would be the most common. More TBers have five or more basses by a wide margin in this poll. That’s saying something. What, I don’t know. But it’s remarkable.
That's exactly why I have twelve. Amazing how you've guessed that.
It's a Sterling body actually, with a Nordstrand pickup and fretless Status neck
I'm picking one up after work today, so I'm still at one.
I hate that your answer wasn't a Ric hahah, but I totally get what you mean. I always end up playing those less serious used basses more than the new fancy pants ones. You don't really worry about anything else so you just play and end up getting more comfortable long term...
I have 4 right now. A JMJ Mustang Bass, EBMM USA SUB, Fender American Reissue 75 Jazz Bass and a Fender Japn Traditional 60s Jazz. I kinda want a P Bass or a GL2000, but I might just save up to get a double bass again.
A few updates in the last months. Sold something, bought something else. I have a new obsession: vintage japanese basses. So I added:
- 1981 Ibanez Roadster RS924
- 1984 Ibanez Musician MC924
- 1979 Kawai F2B
The resto of the family:
- 1991 Fender Precision Japan
- 1991 Fender Jazz Mexico
- Yamaha BB714BS
- Epiphone Allen Woody Rumblekat
7 in total.
Update: sold - again - a Fender AO 60’s P and add a Yamaha bbp35. Total basses still 3 but few days ago I tried a Fender jazz CS 61….oh boy what a bass
