    ***? Carl never made an explorer-bodied bass to my knowledge, got a pic? Sounds like Ken Lawrence's turf.

    I have own a total of 8 basses. Had Three at one point, went down to one, now back up to Three basses. These three cover most of the styles of music I like to play (Fender Jazz EMG's, Lakland 55-02 Deluxe with the newer pickups and preamp, and Sterling SUB Stingray with Aguilar Pickup). I would love to pickup a MTD 535 just because I think they are really nice looking as well as sounding awesome. Now that I', back to work at a good job, I may be placing an order here soon with Mike. :)

    Twelve or so... but switching to fivers accounts for almost half of them since I had to replace the fours.

    I've had 8, total:

    - Warwick Streamer LX4
    - Warwick Corvette RB 4
    - Fender Player Jazz
    - Squier CV 70's P
    - G&L L2500
    - Yamaha TRBX304
    - SBMM Ray 34
    - Squier VM Jazz 5

    Down to 4 right now (first 4 on the list). Tempted to sell for another model I have my eye on, but probably won't be doing that anytime soon.

    About a hundred. I got a bit crazy with trading at some point, a long time ago when you could ship anywhere for 20.
    Nowadays I have 5 which is pretty good.

  7. Now that you bring it up, it wasn’t. Don’t recall Ken Lawrence, perhaps... Greater LA area builder in the late 70’s, early 80’s. Can’t think of his name.

    You wouldn’t believe me if I told you. Been a house on fire since 1985. I don’t believe the numbers myself and gave up keeping track long ago.

    I'm at 27 lifetime owned, I'm "down to" 6 currently.

    Though I keep feel like I'm forgetting some from the past or even one in the current stable.

    Around 67. Now I only have an acoustic bass guitar and 5 Warmoth custom electric basses.

    It took me until fairly recently to really understand what I want from a bass and doing things 'my way' with Warmoth parts has totally scratched that itch.
