    Sorry for the quick picture but I finally got the bass family out and thought I'd share the moment. These are all my basses with the exception of my fretless that I rarely play which is a Heartfield DR5. This is the result of lots of hard work and also years of buying/selling/trading to get what I wanted. I sacrificed alot of Amps/cabs/some basses to end up with what you see here: I am very happy.

  2. So I uh, got this folder on my work computer that has all these beautiful family bass portaits in it that I stare at whenever I get bored at work. I think I can make room for this one :)

    Thanks! I do have kind of a jazz bass fetish but I do like other kinds too just have to many basses as it is to justify anything else right now. Basically I really like my bass collection but I could easily narrow it down to the two F-Basses, my Nordy and my Suhr and be totally happy.

    I will add that I like the Modulus VJ necks better than the other 4's that I have. The Nordy VJ neck is my favorite 5 string neck but the BN5 is very close. Best finger tone goes to my F-Bass BN5 adn my G&L and best slap tone is the GFC. They all sound great though and I can get my fav sounds out of any of them.

    Eventually, I may add the right P-bass but pretty set for now that is for sure.
