My Bass List - pretty scary

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by funkycarnivore, Dec 30, 2003.


  1. I used my holiday time to make a list of how many basses I have owned. As of this writing, I have had 108 basses. I thought it was more, but I guess not. 108 is still pretty scary. Anyway, here's my list:

    If you're bored, post your own.

    Update: 111 now!
