yep, three for me
My Squier, My Samick, and my SX (that's an old Sears guitar in the back...ignore it)
although I do have a few more beyond the 3 in the picture...they are the main players in order of importance.
#1 Jackson - TBX
#2 Dillion - DFBB
#3 EPI - VSBTB
my other ones just sit in the cases jealous of the fact they do not get used."life is tough huh"...hehehe
I actually have the same setup! A P (with flats), a J, and a Reverend 5. It does do everything quite well.
I also have three
A P/J with flats, a Jazz and a Sterling.
Also just three!
1964-65 Hofner Club, 1990s Charvel Surfcaster (not original pic), and a 50s Swedish Bjärton Upright (no pic)
technically i have 4, but really i only have 3 since one of them (a candy-apple red late 80's destroyer with a rusted bridge and what looks like the set of strings installed in the factory) is more of a joke than a bass.
MIM Fender J w/ Badass II, Duncan QPs, Labella flats
Squier Vintage Modified J
Custom short scale, string-thru-body 6 w/ bloodwood board, quilted maple / bloodwood top layer over a walnut body, active EMG w/ push-pull single/dual coil pups and custom bull's head MOP inlay.
The latter is really too much for most of the current stuff I'm playing, but it still makes my pants feel tighter every time I look at it...
To get three basses I have to go buy one.
I have three basses as well.
My main Fender Mustang Bass
A Squier Bronco
and a SX Jazz-copy.
I want more, though, of course.
3 here for me.
Schecter Studio5 (custom Kent Armstrong humbucker soap bars and OBP-3)
Schecter CV-5 (custom Kent Armstrong J in neck, and 2 J's doubled in bridge)
SX P-bass with Quarter Pounder and Kent East 2-band pre)
I can do anything I personally need to do with these 3.
I could see a Fretless need, and an Acoustic 5-string need for general day to day practice, but those would see little use so I've yet to justify them.
Over the years I have been playing, the average number of basses I have had at any one time was - 2. One primary, one backup in case the primary crapped out at a gig.
Currently, I'm not gigging - although I'm trying to change that - and I'm down to one bass. [I'd like to change that, too. ]
I honestly never understood quantities beyond 4 or 5.
Doesn't make sense to me personally.
When the numbers get into double digits, it almost - sorry folks - offends me. I see some people here with really long lists of basses, and, it sorta makes me puke - and laugh.
And cry about all the discretionary income they must have.
One - Geddy Jazz
Two - Early 90's CIJ 62 RI Precision
Three - Dean Playmate AEB
I still have 3 basses right now
but I have 1 custom P bass steve harris west hamm model and 1 incredible laporte 6ers on the way so the days are counted where I'll have only 3 basses!!
sorry no pictures I dont know how to re-size them
I own one bass and I don't even know what it is! But I do have access to 5 other basses whenever I want.
Actually If anybody could help me out on what kind of bass I own that'd be brilliant. It's an Aria.
Sold my old bass for a DJ4 which I'm impatiently waiting for. I'm hoping it'll be the "one bass to rule them all."
i only have three a Epi 5 String and 2 Ibanez 4 strings
Hopefully that will change by the end of the year
Having owned dozens and as many as 7 or 8 at once,...when I own more then 3 I find they do more sitting than they get use.I have my 3 main basses 4 counting the red acoustic,But tis hobby as you all know we get basses all the time and at 3 I feel stripped down so should I get Parker or Ice man to add to the hof, jazz and LTD
I currently have three as well;
-1983-4 Yamaha BB1100S
- 1969 Aria hollow body
-2008 SX Jazz 5er!
I may or may not have a 1995 Pedulla Rapture by Friday!
Kawai P/J, Peavey Foundation S, Pedulla Rapture
I couldn't possibly list my previous basses, 7 or 8 at a time, it was ridiculous. I am now down to ONE bass and a combo amp. Makes it easy at gig time.
