    If you look on the Overwater bass site and look in their gallery; they mention that one guy has 40 of their custom basses - including 7 strings etc.

    And that's just his Overwater basses - not including his other basses! :eek:

  3. I have five, four of which were bought in the past 18 months. I think it's time for me to knock it off for a while.

    Currently I own 5 basses, but would like to add a fretless 6 to the arsenal.

    Peavey Cirrus 6 fretted
    Surine Fretless 4
    Surine Fretted 5
    Mike Lull Vintage Jazz 4 Fretted
    DeArmond Pilot 4 (****ty bass for teaching)

  6. I only have 8.........For now!!! :D
  7. On Tuesday I had 16, sold a P bass that evening, but today it looks like 14.
    If the bank draft turns up for the Status Graphite S2, I’ll be wrapping it up and sending it State-side.

    Having a sell up as I think I’m going to be moving to Thailand in the next few months.
    Going to take 3 with me. The Sadowsky, Anniversary Ray and the Gold hardware P bass. That should cover it.

    It won't be goodbye as I will be online out there and still plan to make music.

    Good Gawd!
    I only have 5:
    2 Warwicks (Stage 2 4 & 5)
    Fender Jazz (must have. Used mainly for recording.)
    2 customs (actually 1, an Aries 6. The Eshenbaugh 5 will be ready in 2 weeks!)

    I've got a Lakland Skyline, Sei 5, Warwick Infinity 5 and another Stage 1 in the works. That'll be all I need. Now, as for all I WANT....................:p

    7 with one more on order.

    Allen Woody was the all time winner in this category, what did he have, 250?
    He who dies with the most toys wins.

    I'd like to hear about your take on the Infinity when you get it, I don't meet many other owners...

    I'm up to 17 basses presently.
    Done for the year. Pretty sure. Probably won't buy anymore. Yeah...

    Those greedy bastages! What's that, more than half off? Not sure what they list for. I didn't pay too much more for my prototype ... hope you get a deal! I sure love mine.
