    just one
    cause i don't have any money to buy more
    and since i lack of at least 2 arms more, i could play only one bass at a time, so that's enough :p

    Ibanez Jazz copy (law suit era)
    Ibanez acoustic
    also some old P bass copy that has bee stripped down re-srayed, de-fretted and remains in pieces after man years lol cant remember the brand but it cost $30

    I don't know what's with all the Ibanez, I bought the 5 string when I was 18, got the Jazz 10-11 years ago for $100 and the acoustic was like $300 like 8 years ago when my old band were doing some acoustic stuff. As for the Thunderbird a couple of years ago I decided it was time to buy a real bass. ;P

    Two is enough for me. One is an EBMM Stingray 5 HH and the other one is a Marcus Miller signature 4 string, and those can easily get me 8 different tones just by changing pickup positions/individual pickup volume. Then come EQ, amp settings, effects, preamp on the Miller, and last but not least different playing techniques. I only use these two basses and a 7 string EBMM guitar these days, and those can easily cover everything I wanna do. Funk to pop to rock to the deepest metal, no problem.

    Pretty simple: 3 jazz basses

    I play in 2 bands: 1 bass is at each rehearsal space and 1 (the fretless one) is at home!

    Now the pedalboard!!! I have to lug that sucker in and out each time :bawl:
     
  18. Two!

    Squier Standard Precision V (Strung with D'Addario Tapewounds)
    Ibanez AEB5E Acoustic-Electric (Strung with OEM bronze rounds)

    All my basses are covered!
     
  19. Almost a bell shaped curve w/the data.
