    Curious...how could you stare at that inspiring beauty (I don't play Warwick), and hardly play it!?

    Any bass I have that I don't play a lot, stays in a case, the others that I do stare at, are where the stare usually leads to grabbing it.:D

    I guess what I mean is that this bass, strangely enough, gets played less than the P and the Steinberger.

  7. Yep, mine is also a warwick! Oddly enough, my rockbasses get played more that the German wicks :laugh:

    Warwick Ltd Edition 2002. I LOVE the swirly Bubinga top. I just don’t really play 4-strings much

    I have no such bass. I have one fretted and one fretless, and they both get played.

    That’s why I make these extended length strap buttons:

    My black on black Fender p. Nice bass, but just too muddy sounding for me. About to put new pickups and strings in it.

    That is gorgeous... I wanted that model but couldn't find one when I actually had the money to pull the trigger. Ended up with my Streamer LX4 (which I do like a lot), but I still drool over the Stage 2's when I see em.
    Play that thing! lol

    Right now, it’s every bass I own. The borrowed upright is taking up 100% of my playing and practice time.

    Just went through my basses and pared down my collection, anything I don't play gets sold or traded. The hope is someone else gets to play the instruments as they should. I sold a few of the more inexpensive ones, put the money towards a bass I know I'd play, a US Fender P bass. So no dedicated wall hangers at the moment. One I used to look at but rarely played a few years ago was the Ibanez Ergodyne EDA900 because of the funky futuristic shape.

    I'm the opposite...... currently my most played bass is the one I don't really like the look of..... but it is so nice to play.
