I gig twice a month with my present band and see no need to own more than one bass. I have a Lakland Joe Osborn and I love it to death. The band leader/producer loves my sound and has asked me to not change a thing (including string type). I sold all my other basses and I'm married to this one now. After years of buying/selling/trading I have my perfect sound (and look) and plan to be identified by it. I know the argument for having backups, but he has a 51 P reissue that I could always grab if needed. Anyone else fall into this category? You must own only one bass and be gigging.
