I only have three basses thread

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Sub5ound, Sep 7, 2008.


  1. I can't help you, but I'm digging how it looks!

    I also have three (Fender RBV, Fender MIJ fretless P, G&L Tribute L2000) and they more than cover all my needs. While I do feel lucky to own such fine instruments that aren't bank-breaking, I don't see myself stopping here.Who says collecting basses was about neccessity, though? ;)

    I have three fenders: an active jazz, a passive jazz, and a jag. the jag was as close as i could get to a jazz while getting enough different tones to feel as if buying it was justified.
     
  4. I have a Squier P (beater), Stingray HH (main), Upton Standard Hybrid (future main ;)) I feel thats all one really needs, 3 basses

    I too only have 3 basses, 2 fretted P/J's and 1 fretless P/J. It's all I need for now. All three were made by Pat Wilkins.
