    You have to sell one or buy another. Number thirteen and all. Probably best to go with the second option.

    Now with pic ;) The P is a partscaster I’m just finishing up. Needs a final setup and possibly some flats.

    I apologize for this. What does NBD mean? I keep seeing it and I searched.

    Just added my 4th. I told myself I’d sell one but the cheap one probably isn’t worth selling.

    Old stable: Parts Precision, Dean Acoustic, Peavey J-esque

    Thanks! I don’t know if I’d have picked black-on-black but it was used, and it’s really grown on me. Very classy.

    it’s actually black sparkle! :cool:

    I own 1 less than last week.
    Some son of a b.i.t.c.h entered my house and stole my acoustic bass!
    At least, stupid a.s.s.h.o.l.e took the 300€ Tanglewood and left the 3000€ Sadowsky.
    :rage:

    Now I have 7, which is nuts since I've only been playing for 1 year. Really need to seek help on this addiction.
    On the plus side I usually pick up at least 2 of them per day.
     
  15. I would love to hear some clips of the BSX.
     
  16. I have to say the Ibanez Musician I got in the 1990s has been one of my best investments. It has really kept me from buying or not flipping other basses hundreds of times.

    I really enjoy the repairs, renovations of abused instruments. That has always been my MO. I find a good instrument in bad shape and fix them up. But even where I can always get them to good action, etc. that Ibanez is ridiculous, like sub 1mm to 1.25 action without too much buzzing.

    But Ive steadily added some as Ive been filling different genres roles here and there through some collaborations.

    So currently:
    1980s Ibanez Musician
    BSX electric upright
    2 Warwick Corvettes, fretted $$ and fretless standard
    2 Reverends, Thundergun and Mercalli
    A rescue Fender Jazz Bass, but I am probably Warmothing it.

    At least he/she doesn't seem to be a bass player.

    Added this Fender Bass Noir to the stable yesterday. Moved the BSX Upright, it is an outstanding instrument but I didn't play it and it didn't appear I was going to, so...
