    You're too sensitive!

    When I was 18 (I'm 50 now), I only owned ONE bass, AND it didn't even occur to me that I OUGHT to have any others! Partly that's because this was in the prehistoric days when there was no internet, and thus no occasion to realize how oppressed I was!

    Don't worry about it, it's NO big deal. From what I understand, Jaco Pastorius owned several because they were given to him, but only played ONE, period!

    6, but one of them is in disrepair, another one is for sale, and a third is a short-scale Squier (the Badtz Maru Bronco) that's more for goofing off than actually playing music. I mainly use my Line6 Variax 705 for recording and my MTD Artist 5 for performing (with my MTD Z6 as a backup).

  11. One.

    I have a taste for all-or-nothing. (ie. American Fenders) And on a student budget, that's kind of hard. lol

    I'm going to buy a new bass in the coming months, when school is out for summer, and I can be working again.

    5. only play 3 regularly though.
     
  13. I own 3, my main bass (Lakland 5501), it's back up (Tobias Renegade 5), and 4 banger (Warwick Corvette) that just sits here and stares at me, asking me to play it but I refuse every time.
     
  14. 3 and I consider myself very fortunate.

  18. Jaco actually practiced on his fretted bass because it saved the fingerboard of his fretless, but Jaco was mostly known for his fretless.
