Like a lot of us (I guess), I have too many basses, really. I love 'em all, but being honest I would have to say many are seriously underused. Here's a rundown. Tell me what to do, I'm really confused here! 1) Rick 4003 Fireglo. I always wanted one of these as a kid and it's a great instrument, but it only gets played at home these days. 2) Geddy Lee Jazz - I bought this because I wanted a nice passive J and I was going to fit a pair of Nordy NJ4SVs I had into it to make a perfectly quiet passive bass for recording; not got round to it yet! 3) Stingray 4 3EQ - looks beautiful, plays like a dream, but the tone just does not do it for me. 4) 78 P - great bass, love the sound, weighs a ton. It would kill my shoulder to play a full gig with this one. Records really well, though. A bit of a nostalgia trip for me, old guys will know what I'm saying here. 5) MIM Jazz with EMGs - this is a great instrument in all respects, way more than "the sum of its parts". This is the bass I normally keep strung with flats and they suit it perfectly. I use it for theatre work quite often, for several reasons. 6) Cheapo Stagg SR4 copy - sling it in the car boot (er - trunk?) and forget about it. Always handy to have for a spare, and it actually plays well. 7) Stagg SR5 copy - my only 5er, doesn't get much use. 8 and 9) My main basses, both Warmoth bodied, Status necked Jazz basses with the best electronics and hardware I could choose when I put them together. These do about 90% of my gigs and I would never part with either of them. Perfect instruments for me - well, that's why we have custom jobs, isn't it? I also own a Tanglewood ABG - god alone knows why, although as ABGs go it's quite nice - and a Palatino EUB that I trot out from time to time. Okay, tell me your thoughts.
