  1. If he has enough for a second house, I’m sure he’s in a decent financial situation. Only one home here, with a single room granted to me. But it’s true; I have accumulated a lot of stuff.

    Bought one (an acoustic bass for “unplugged” style events - with an amp, of course). Sold none.

    Having a couple of Wals you adore can do that to you!

    PS own 5 basses in total plus another on loan to a chum (not sure I’ll ever get it back). Only ever sold one... 20 years ago!

    oh man...

    the past ten years I sold two alembics (S1 and S2), a 64 jazz and a 72 jazz and was left with an Alembic SCSD.

    I thought I was pretty much done with basses, but the past year I've bought a P bass and 4 different jazz basses.

    My eBay feedback is 601. It’s almost entirely bass guitar sales.

    I don’t think commercial users should respond..

  11. In the past 10 years, I've bought 5, which took my total up to 8. I've given one to my son and still have all the others.
     
  12. In the past 10 years, I bought one and sold none. I have a grand total of 2 bass guitars. There was a 16 year stretch during which I only had one (and I was fine with that - didn't GAS for another). I don't play this whole buying/selling/buying game.

    I've sold four basses in the last few years. I broke even on one and made money on two of them. I took a loss on one only because it was very heavy. Overall, I came out ahead. Today I own two basses, a '74 Precision and a Geddy Jazz, pretty much covers it for me.

    Hard to remember for sure, but I cut way down over the last 10 years...maybe 3. Gigging in fewer genres, quit my day job so less pocket money. Haven't bought a bass for over 3 years. I've definitely sold a lot since 2008...from memory, 8.

    Four for me. (in with the saner mob, I am :cool: which indicates how sensible we are, collectively, as a subgroup ;)) All Jazz. All abide. (One's a wicked PJ.) if I were playing out, I'd have two more: another fretless Jazz and a Precision, or two to match those.
