OK. If the average family has 2.4 kids, how many basses does the average TB'er keep in his/her stable? And just as important--why? Two similar basses with one as backup? Two totally different basses to cover a broader tonal range? A beater and a work of art, etc. I'll kick things off. I have five basses- three Sterlings for their great rock n' roll tone. A Fender P-bass with a Bart NTBT for country phatness. And a Bongo 5 H/SC that sounded so good, I had to have it! Let the truth be known!
