    Ok which bass do you rescue if you could only save one. Also your insurance wont cover the ones you lose.

    I love your collection!! Whats the ticket price for a tour?

    Well, I don't think he'll have to save his Zon...just ask pd

    Okay...that was a low blow...besides, I'm just kidding:D

    I voted MTD 635!:D

    Brad I really hope this scenario doesnt give you nightmares!!
     
  4. I think he would grab the '78 Tobias and have his wife grab the Zon and Elrick. IF he has kids, they will all grab at least one other...

    What a nightmare!

    Very funny thread!

    Clover of course. It's the only German bass in the bunch.

    If you look closely at the photo's you'll notice that all of the basses are just a few steps from a door or window. Brad's not going to let any of those babies go up in smoke, unless of course he lights them on fire with his hands. :D

    But Brad is the hero type and he rushes past the wife and kids to save one last "baby".

    And Ill throw in he fact that its in a case , with wrenches and strap!! ;)

    Odie, you are one sick puppy:D
    This thread is too funny.

    Obviously, my family first.

    I've actually thought about this before. The absolute hardest one to replace would be the 78 Tobias. Logically that would make sense. I'd like to get my wife to grab one but I think her hands would be full with her Tivo unit;).

    The Zon can stay until after the fire... I can just pick it up under the rubble. As we all know, Zon's is magic.

    JMX, the Clover moved to Amityville last week :( :)

    Of course as Phil said, I'd try to toss as many that are in cases out the window as possible;)

    Jeff, you probably nailed it


    and tours are Mon.-Thurs. 11:00am to 3:30pm except on Christmas and Halloween. For advance tickets see pd.

    I have been meaning to ask you John, of all your basses which one is your favorite, desert island or most often played?

    I don't see many of the basses you guys have in your collections in person. I might have to try and weasel my way to the next NAMM show to at least breathe in the air of some of these Conklins, Zons and my current fave, MTDs.

    John, I'm sure you've answered this before, how do you transport that double necked monstrosity? :D

    nice collection......

    but look at this kooks gear :eek:

  14. Hey Brad...the rest of that shi...ummm...stuff is pretty replaceable. Save the old G&L because it a) might be one of the mahogany bods (very rare) and it b) might have a sig in the neck cavity or on the neck of some guy named Leo. Tobias will make you another one of them old basses.

    I'm thinking Brad would want to immediately start earning some bucks so that he could build or buy another home to store his next bass collection. Given that, my dangling chad is next to the MTD 635.

    More strings means more notes means more money, right?;)


    Peace,

    i would have to say the doubleneck, just because it's so completely unique, even for bill.

    i don't know, though, the new 8 string plays so well, it's hard to say. they all play so well. there's nary a one that i forsee willingly leaving my collection any time soon. (like ever) :D
