    Stop doing that. You only need one. :mad:
  2. Just for that, I will now make it my goal to own at least one more. :)

    I have my Sadowsky 5 which is tuned a half step flat for my original rock project.

    I have my Fender Marcus Miller 4 which is set up for slap and goes to most of my session gigs.

    And I have my fretless Carvin SB5000 which is used for, well, when I need a fretless.

    I'd say thats a solid reason to have 3 J-style basses.

    I have one and plan on getting a MIA Fender jazz when I get the money. Reason being, cause my current jazz is a Squier.

    I plan on eventually having 7, and naming them after the days of the week. If I can't control the urge, I'll get 5 more and rename them after the months in the year.

    If I have a Jaguar and a Warwick Infinity, is that two jazz basses or none? ;)

    Um, actually I need another one because my only one right now is fretless which works well for about 95% of what I like to play but sometimes you just need something with frets. Oh, and I plan on buying a '78 Jazz because I need one from the year that I was born.
  9. Well Dag. I own 3.
    A ’70, an ’09 and a “project” 04.

    They don’t sound alike so there.

    I had two, a fretted and a fretless. I used the fretted as a trade-in on a Jag bass but I still have the fretless.

    The white one is kept pristine and used at home..
    The Black one is strictly for gigs (cheaper Japanese Fender, thick poly finish etc and a little more 'glam').

    I make no apologies!

    But we are still allowed to have multiple P basses, right?

    If so, I am good :D

    I have one but ideally I'd like to have another as a fretless.

    And maybe a 5er. And a 5er fretless.

  20. You only need one J bass, especially if its a Fender:)
