    Sir, it looks like you have a bass infestation. They suck up your time and money. Good thing I'm a professional bass remover. I'll have those outta there in no time....:D

    Quite a family, indeed!

    I think the lightwave Zon is my favorite, but they are all really quite stunning.

    I think you're set on unlined fretless 5'ers, no?

  4. Another vote for the lightwave Sonus.. :D

    Schweet! What the heck is a 'Modine' anyway? What is that top?

    What a happy looking family :) . I really like the Zon to the left (Custom 5 model?) of the Sonus lightwave.

    I have to say I think I like the Spalt Modine bass the best. It has the most character.

    Then, again, I covet your Lightwave basses. Oh, yes, I will have a Lightwave fretless one day...

    ...One day......

    Congrats on a nice collection.

    Nice basses you got there!

    I think the only thinkg missing now is a lightwave Spalt matrix.
