    At a certain point there's no way the wife can keep track of your basses. Especially if she doesn't understand what she's looking at. Heck, I have three basses and my wife said this past weekend that she thought that I had two.

    Just remember to maintain the balance and not start noticing just how many shoes and purses she has... say something once and her all-seeing gaze will turn towards your own collection!

    the less a wife knows and the fewer she thinks there are, the happier the relationship.

  4. Thank you for the comment.
    These pictures together are making me think about the meaning of life and how many basses are really needed (probably 3 is enough). Due to COVID, things are standing still and I sincrely hope everything gets going soon again.
  5. What a wonderous collection. Beeoot. Hope you have more than two arms and hands attached! Thanks for the post, because I can show my wife and say, "Look!". Her eyes'll roll back in her head, and I'll be off to get another bass!:woot: Cheers!

  7. Can you plunk a photo of your Musicmaster in here? I bought a JC Epiphone this Dec and it has WAY more under the hood than someone would think, by looking at this kindly ol' hollow body bass. Jack and Epi did a great job developing that pickup.

    I have 7 and my wife look at me as if I had 25!
    My problem is she's not stupid! She can count! She just can't see the point of having as many... (she's probably right about this).
    And worse! From her point of view, as a singer, she don't need quite anything to perform!

    oh no no no! As a singer, does she wear the exact same outfit every time? She has tools of her trade and you have yours.

  11. Most of my basses are really old, so she doesn't mind. Is just overwelming to look at all of them together.
    She does the same thing as I do, but with shoes LOL.

    OMG you nailed it.
    There was a time I thought the desire to own every shoe ever made was a learned trait that had something to do with feeling pretty.
    Then my granddaughter was born.
    By age 2, my son had to avoid going into any department stores with her... she would see the store as they were parking and start to shout "S H O E S S SSSSS..." and for years they couldn't get out of a store without a major family disruption unless she got some pretty new shoes.
    Same with granddaughter 2..... same with granddaughter 3.........
    clearly it is a sex linked genetic trait.
    My wife is actually pretty ok with my bass collection. But if she ever does complain I will have to remember to point out her shoes.

    So maybe she just gets a bit jealous of the basses huh?

    gotta love them lines wether they be on a bass, car, *cough cough*(clears throat)..... wife.
    I’m a lucky guy. My wife loves me and my basses. As long as she gets caressed a bit more then them things are good.
    Hard to balance though as there is only one of her and 9 of them.....

    Is 1/10th fair??? Jk.... :whistle::bag:
