    And then there were two! I just shipped my Ibanez Roadstar II RB630 off to another TB member. I liked the bass a lot but I'm saving for a 5er and so I cleared it out.

    Current stable:

    Schecter Raiden Special-4 tuned BEAD with D'Addario XLs
    Ibanez AEB5E acoustic with La Bella White Nylon Tapes

    The bass I'm saving for right now is a Schecter Stiletto Stealth 5.

    NBD!
    Back to 7!
    With the money the insurance gave me for my stolen acoustic Tanglewood, I bought :

    Tadaaaaa!
    An acoustic Tanglewood!!!
    But a better one!
    TAB 1 CE XB instead of the TAB 155 A.
    Put new GHS Flatwoods on it and I love it!!! 20211118_082139.jpg

    Turns out, I have 7 bass guitars, a bass uke, and a bass banjo. Not including the tubas. 20211116_215713.jpg

  4. I thought I was done with 2. A 4 and a 5... Lakland 44-01 and a Yamaha BB235.

    But I had been gassing for Jazz lately. So... I picked up smoking deal on a FSR Squier Jazz in Charcoal Frost. So, I'm back to 3. :D

    Letting the Washburn go I can see, but not the P bass.
    I too started out on a PBass. It was made in Mexico late 90’s Fender in Maroon wine red, rosewood fingerboard . My main players are now 5 stings as I like the feel and need the low B. But I always keep a PBass with flats in my arsenal . My favorite PBass is the original Squier CLassic Vibe 60’s with TI Flats. I’ve owned 7 of these and realized I needed to stop selling them off. It’s not my main player but it’s there when I need and desire what only a good PBass can do.
    You probably will regret if you sell your PBass. The Yamaha BB’s are great basses. But so is the simple PBass.
     
  6. Down to 4 again, sold my Jolana D Bass this week, so now its

    Fender Jazz bass
    Harley Benton JB75
    Harley Benton PJ-HTR 5
    Chickenbacker 4003 copy in blue, gorgeous but needs a better neck pup installation

    Eyes open for a cheap P Bass, might grab another HB as impressed with those. JB75 is my go to bass for band practice, love the feel and the weight too.

  8. It's nice that we have this problem. Ask a pianist.

    "Hey, how many pianos ya got?"
    "Uh, one; I had to re-mortgage my house"

    Had to add one more to my vote. No. 5 is on the way -- a MIJ Fender '51 P Bass in Butterscotch Blond.

    In order of preference:

    1. Squier classic vibe precision
    2. Squier classic vibe jazz
    3. Epiphone Embassy
    4. Squier early 1950s single coil precision.

    Had others in the past, used Fender clones over 40 years ago, 1986 Ibanez.

    Precision is essential, jazz is really nice.
