A local guy has a pretty vast collection of amazing basses and today he and I got together so that I could drool on his collection. My wife joked about me going to the "bass museum" today. Unfortunately I did not bring a camera so you all will have to take my word for it. Among the beauties, MTD Marilyn #2 (see Vic's avatar for one of her sisters), a NAMM 535 fretless with a crazy redwood top, an experimental 535 with a custom MIDI system on board, an F Bass Alain Caron fretless 5, a NAMM BN5 with a pre adjustment to make it a bit hotter output, an NS Design electric upright, Lakland American Joe Osborn, this crazy Lakland/Tobias hollowbody collaboration. . . oh, and a completely stock '65 jazz bass! Played everything through an EA iAMP 800 and VL-210 cab. Needless to say, it was a beautiful afternoon. I was extremely impressed by the MTD's. They're such fantastic playing and sounding instruments. The Marilyn was one of the most responsive basses I've ever played, had great deep low end and was LIGHT as can be! The '65 was fantastic too... good wood really does improve with age. I'll post more later, I'm just exhausted. But I was excited and wanted to get a thread up.
