    I’ve been through phases where I like a bass, so I get one or two more of the same brand. At various times, I’ve had multiple Sadowskys, multiple Elricks, multiple Overwaters, multiple Stingrays and multiple Fenders. Eventually, I decided that I wanted each bass to be markedly different so I changed my approach and no longer double-up on brands.

    Of course, some TBers have not only multiples of the same brand but multiples of the same model. That’s hardcore!

    Who has multiple basses of the same brand? If so, how many? Pics encouraged?

    I guess I like to diversify; all 10 in my arsenal are from different makers.
    Closest I come is two Fender necks. ('78 P neck on a Warmoth body and a '78 Musicmaster.)

    Two Alembics, two pre-Ernie Ball Music Man. Used to have two Hanewinckels that were consecutive serial numbers, purchased two years apart. Sold them to the same guy in two separate transactions.

    I own 6 Aria SB model basses from the Matsumoko era. You could call me a fan.

  7. When i seriously collected my collection was mostly based on having all the major consumer-ish brands represented. So i had one of just anout every production bass you would have heard on records in the 70s and 80s.

    I never went for the high end fender clones. Anything above 2 grand i never really considered. This was 20 years ago though when i was able to a get a 5 string Wal for 1900.

    I did have a P and J, but only those fenders

    That's an oddly specific collection - is there some story behind your "focus" on that one model?

    two kapok PJs:

    i don't know if these meet the criteria, but here are four glarry-based, parts axes:

    three of those carry my own 'badge' so maybe those fit the "multiple" idea.

    7 fenders (2 Jazz, Jazz Aerodyne, Precision, Jaguar, Telecaster, Mustang) 1 Squier, 2 Yamahas and a stand-up NDesign. I would try something else but the local music stores tend to offer the $300 and under types. I would like to add a Lakland or Sadowsky to the collection, but few around to try. Might have to take a trip into Boston or NYC to play the high-end kind.

    I have duplicate Medium Scale Precision Bass ..... one for flats, one for rounds. To this day I can't tell you which one I love more.
