    I play an Eastwood Airline Map Bass, 2006 MIM Jazz (soon to get a fretless maple neck), and a Chinese upright.

    Looking to get a yamaha bb-415 soon and string it EADGC.

    After downsizing, I own just one bass now. And I'm loving it.

    I sold all my basses and bought a lakland skyline dj4 from 2007. Great bass.

    And I also own my hungarian db, but that is for sale at the moment.

    It was my cure for gas: downsizing, buying the bass you really want and staying of talkbass. You can see I'm back on tb and the itching has started again. :s
     
  12. 3 at the moment

    4 string, 5 string, upright

    I have four basses.

    1.Fender mia jazz
    2.Fender mia P bass
    3.Fender mim fretless
    4.Musicman Sterling
     
  14. After my 2007-08 downsizing/upgrading...
    1. Dean Edge Hammer 10X 10-string in Natural Mahogany (coursed)
    2. Ibanez SR-1206 six-string in Natural Maple (soon to be on the selling block as well: It's too heavy for my surgically-altered back, I've come to terms that I'm not a 6-string player at heart, and if I want the range I'd rather play a 5er strung EADGC)
    3. Ibanez SR-800 fretless in "Jewel Blue" (on loan to a friend who doesn't have a fretless, and was my first "good" bass so there's too much sentimentality attacked to sell)
    4. Mike Lull Modern 4 in Transparent Red
    5. Mike Lull Modern 5 in Transparent Amber
    6. Music Man S.U.B. Sterling in "Textured Cinnamon" (a Rust Red/Green/Gold "Kameleon"-type finish)
    7. Spector ReBop 4 DLX EX with Zebrawood top (aka "The ZeBop")
    8. Spector ReBop 5 DLX FM fretted in Black Cherryburst
    9. Spector ReBop 5 DLX FM lined fretless in Blueburst with HG Thor Epoxy Coating

    It actually seems to me that I own less than I actually do: my Ibby 6 will be sold off in the near future (and hopefully fund a used ReBop I can string E-C as a replacement), my Ibby 4 fretless was cased in the closet until I found out my friend was interested in learning fretless, the Dean 10-string is a pretty unique-sounding bass that gets used for specific sounds and parts, and my S.U.B. Sterling was a gift from the Significant Other and a rarity in terms of it's finish so even if the MM sound isn't my sound, it's a staple that's good to have around.

    ...so although the count is 9 I feel that it's 5, as my Lulls and Spectors get the vast majority of my playing time and are my "Go-To" instruments.
     
  15. No-Name Made In Korea Bass
    Picture23.jpg
    Ibanez EDB 600
    Picture25.jpg
    ESP C-305

    All strung with various DR strings

    Back home, I have a Warwick Fretless Corvette 4banger that I still have to give my mom $593 for, so it's not mine yet, but soon...
