This is the one I play once a week but not every day like I do my jazz basses.
This has an extra piece of stainless cable that I don't have much use for since I found Hipshot double detuners. But it's sure prudy, methinks.
I bought a TRBX604FM very beautiful. I then bought a BB424, not so beautiful. I play the BB and admire the TRBX.
Wow just the opposite for me! My Fiesta red CV P gets most of the playing time
My fretted bass. I'm mostly playing upright and fretless these days, so she doesn't get out much. I hope to rectify that soon, at least with some home recording.
Every 6 string bass I buy
Nice Stambaugh P bass. IIRC it is on his gallery. I've had a Stambaugh for 10 years now.
Nice wood on that one… I have the black version of that one too, is yours a little neck heavy?
It seems the light Ash body on mine makes the neck feel a little heavier.
I'll be chastised for this, but I rarely play by Ric 4003w so I hung it on the wall at my office. It looks great, even though it just looks at me in judgement all day....
It is just a bit. Never really bothered me though.
I try to get around to playing all of my basses, but of late I’ve been just been letting these hang. But as soon as I get home I will play them.
All of mine fit that description
When there's a Rickenbacker in the room or a picture of one I tend to stare at them, to me they're probably the most aesthetically beautiful basses and guitars ever built but I play them as much as I look at them, I also think Fender Precisions are very nice looking basses, I think they're prettier than Jazzes, EB-0's, EB-3's, T-Birds, EB-2's are all pretty basses. When I stare at a pretty bass it makes me want to play it. If I had a bass I didn't play whether pretty or not I would probably sell it and get one I did play. so I guess I just wasted a post.
I need to get a stand that hangs this one from the headstock. No putting it down in a regular stand. Or a hard case that it can lay flat on my shelf where basses in current number one, easy to grab, position live. Stays in the gig bag so I’m not even staring at it.
These two rotate in more frequently.
Whatever bass is laying in the easy to grab spot gets played, the rest are secured in gig bags or hard cases.
I rotate them whenever the urge strikes.
Lately the Peavey Cirrus has stayed in the favorite spot for months.
Four basses seems like a lot at the moment, but I don’t feel any urge to downsize. They all give the warm and fuzzies.
This Lakland Skyline 55-02D was my main gigging bass ~7 years ago, but since around 2016 or so it's been relegated to sporadic use...off the top of my head I can only think of three gigs I've used it on since then. But a few months ago, as I was shuffling various basses in & out of cases to free up a particular gig bag, I paused to think "Damn, that cherry sunburst on quilted maple is hawt!"
So I hung it up on a wall hanger in my studio. I definitely do love to look at it. And since it's easily accessible on the wall, I do now pull it down from time to time to noodle on it.
T-Birds don't like those kind of stands, I use them anyway.
I bought a 1967 Hofner for 50 bucks in 1969, of course it was hot and I found out where it came from (next town) and gave it back, I could have bought it several years later for 250 bucks though, still kicking myself.
The only bass I ever built (from scratch, 25 years ago). It's still my favorite, best sounding, and playing bass. I love it and will never sell it. However these days I play 5 strings most often. I do break her out for a session every week or 2.
