As some of you may know, I own a Maruszczyk Jake 6 which was made to order for me. There should still be a few pics of it in some Show Your Basses thread if you search for my username + Maruszczyk or something (unless I spelt it wrong back then, which is likely...). To start from the beginning: my first two basses were a Squier VM P-bass and VM Jazz. I sort of regret selling the P, even though I now own another Squier VM P-bass which in my opinion is very special. Then I bought a used LTD B-206 (one of the flamed maple ones before they changed them to spalted maple) because I thought the 6-string deal would "give me more options and I'd never need anything else". Not long after that I had the Jake 6 made. In hindsight this was a pretty premature decision because I had little experience with basses and therefore only a very vague idea of what I really look for in a bass. I played it for a few years, until I bought that second (used) VM P-bass I mentioned, which has been my main player ever since, partly because my sound just evolved to the more vintage/classic/old-school side of the spectrum. Now when I pick up the Jake again, it feels jarringly unnatural and foreign to play. I probably could get used to it again but honestly I don't really see the point. I guess I just outgrew the whole 6-string thing. I don't even see myself ever getting another 6-er, at most I'd go for 5 but I'm so used to 4 that I'd rather just get a few different 4-strings for different purposes. I'm not really sentimental or precious about instruments, in general I don't like to have stuff lying around that doesn't get used. If I notice that I'm no longer using an instrument as much as I probably should, I automatically start to consider selling it. However, since this isn't just any old bass, I'm not entirely convinced I should let this one go because it really is a one-off. I do have some sentimental value attached to it, but honestly at this point I'd be more upset if I no longer had the Squier (yes, it's that good). I'm considering ordering another custom Jake in the future (4-string, alder body, maple neck/fretboard, P/J, vol/blend/tone, paddle-style tuners, some kind of surf green/baby blue with mint or parchment pickguard) which would definitely get more use than my current one. Anyway, this isn't meant as a "cast your votes as to whether or not I should sell it" kind of thing, though opinions are very welcome, mostly I'm just curious if you look at basses as being despensible/replaceable, or if you only buy really special basses (objectively unique or special to you as a player) and therefore would never get rid of any unless you REALLY had to. Have a great day!
