    How do you find time to enjoy all of those? Really nice collection! I especially like the Alembic Mark King, the Status and the Pedulla.

    As an owner of only 1 bass (me good old Fender P-Bass) this makes me a tad jealous, someday I'm hoping to have a collection such as yours. How long did it take you to accumulate all of them?
  7. What a collection

    I stopped looking as soon as I saw the Status 5 headless :eek:

    Now I've got gas, and its not from the tacos I just ate.

    I've been playing for about 23 years and its only been lately that I have been able to afford a nice collection. From 1982 until 1996 I played an Aria Pro II that I had bought used. I got the Warwick in 1996, the Pedulla in 1997, the Larrivee' in 1999, the Alembic in 2003, the Mouradian in 2004 and the Aria Pro II(a 1978 I got off eBay) and the Status in 2005. I was using the Warwick and the Alembic as my main basses until I got the Status. Now I am thinking about selling the Pedulla and the Warwick to thin the herd out a little as I really don't need 3 five string basses.

    My band practices about 2-3 times a week. I have the 5 strings tuned to ADGCF and I alternate them for certain songs. The Mouradian and the Aria are tuned EADG and I use them for certain songs as well. The Warwick and the Pedulla aren't getting much love so I am thinking about letting them go

    I've wanted a Mouradian ever since the bass player for Extreme played one (a girl I liked thought they were the greatest...)

    Pat Badger worked in Jim Mouradian's guitar shop building them with Jim and his son before he played in Extreme. He is playing a CS-74 at the tribute concert for Freddy Mercury and Nuno Bettencourt is playing the guitar version.

    Hey all I meant Aria.

    How did I fail you Cliff?!
  19. Cliff's was an Aria Pro II, I'm sure he'd forgive your mistake... this time!

    VERY nice collection of basses there. Since they are insured, you ever thinking about having a "house fire" and then a "garage sale" ? :hyper:
