    3 - down from 6.

    I kept my Sadowsky Standard 5, the Lakland 55-94 my wife bought me and a Warmoth Deluxe 5 fretless.

    GAS for high-end camera gear is worse than GAS for basses!

    I recently sold my backup bass, and for the first time in a long time, I am a one-bass guy. And I love it.

    I have 2: a Cort Artisan C4H 2004 Ltd Ed and an old, defretted Ibanez Roadster RS900.

    But I am a bit curious about what all the fuzz is about when it comes to the classic Fenders... Some day... ;)

    I don't play out with mine. I just use them for songwriting, jammin and recording, so I picked what I feel are the two best basses to own if you can only justify two. I owned both of these models 25 years ago when I was running my own commercial recording studio, and they definitely complimented each other nicely.

    So when I decided to get back into writing and recording, I wanted to get those two great bass models again.

    With quality amps and outboard gear, you can get pretty much any bass sound you want out of these.

    2013 Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass
    2013 Rickenbaker 4003 (still waiting for it to arrive)

    Sterling by Musicman Ray34 (Honeyburst/rosewood/tort)

    Eastwood EUB-1, semi-hollow, fretless Ampeg clone (Black)
