The 5+ Basses Owned Club

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by JaySeeDoubleYou, Dec 15, 2007.

  1. If you own 5 or more basses, stand up and be counted! (Literally, I will be assigning member#s)

    Share your pics, any pertanent details about your bass, and your thoughts on it (pros/cons)

    The rules: As long as it's either a bass guitar, or an upright bass, then it can be anything.

    Generally the people who create loads of clubs, just for the sake of creating clubs are the ones considered trolls.

    It was a bit longer list but I sold recently 5 basses.
  16. #6 Tanker (care to elaborate?) :D
    #7 Black Rose (nice!)
    #8 Full Range (HOLY CRAP!!!!!) :)
    #9 DeanMC (Nice Pix)
    #10 Margus (tell us more about the Nordy!)
  17. Well, this Nordy is the most comfortable bass in my collection. The playability is unbelievable. It's 34,5", very light Ash body and Maple/Maple neck with white binding and pearloid blocks. The pickups are Big Singles and the pre is 3-band Audere. I changed the strings to DR Marcus Miller set and this bass is truely amazing.
    Usually it's a bit uncomfortable to slap on 5-string but this one feels like it was 4-string.
    I strongly suggest everybody to try out the Nordy! Great experience. :hyper:
