    I think I voted two, if I remember correctly. Now I'm down to one, my Squier VM Jaguar. Unfortunately I have more basses on my GAS list than I have money. After I get my Korg Microkorg XL, which is partly a bass in itself (it has some really fat low end sounds), I want to get a real Fender P. And a Rick. And a Hofner. etc. etc.

    This music thing gets expensive, but it's so worth it when you finally get that shiny new piece of equipment.

  9. 4 currently. Seat number 4 usually rotates pretty often but I purchased a Fender 62 AVR Jazz Bass back in November which
    I 've really been enjoying.

    Currently four, but I went with five since a Pedulla Pentabuzz is on the way from Texas from another TBer.


    '08 Hwy One Jazz
    Squier CV '51 Precision
    Squier VM Jazz fretless
    '09 Pedulla Pentabuzz
    POS Palatino Upright
  15. 3 Musicman basses, one Ovation Magnum and several 6 string guitars.

    I would like to own about a dozen more but I put a halt to buying basses until I am in a band again.

    I lied.

    I voted four, but really have five.

    However, I'm gonna photograph one this weekend and put it up for sale on TB.

    The keepers: One fiver with rounds; one fiver with flats; one fiver fretless with rounds, one four-string fretless with flats.

    As a hobbyist, this is probably more than I need; it's like I'm loaded for session work, which is not in the cards. (Have walked that walk in a past life, on trombone, so old habits die hard!) But each is an excellent axe that has distinguished itself during a six-year frenzy of gassy gearhead madness. I don't regret the periods of excess (at one time I had 8 basses in the house), because I've learned so very much about what's good, what's not so good, and what works for me. We are lucky to live in a period when so many great axes are available, at so many price points. And while I have some high-end axes, one of my keepers was a $600 dealie. (Hint - good Yamaha BB2000 basses are seriously underpriced for how remarkable they are!)
