    There's another thread that's been around for quite awhile, if you could have 10 and only ten basses. The premise is list the top ten basses you would like to own.

    How about a list of the top ten that you currently own, (or top 5, top 3, if you have a smaller collection.)

    Here's the top 10 that I currently own:

    1. Sadowsky RV5 w/VTC, Olympic White
    2. Modulus Quantum 5
    3. Warmoth Gecko 5
    4. Michael Kelly Dragonfly 5 Acoustic
    5. Fender 40th Anniversary Custom Shop P Bass
    6. '73 Fender Jazz Bass
    7. Yamaha BB3000A
    8. Yamaha BB3000AF (Fretless)
    9. Fender Power Z Jazz Special
    10. Hagstrom Swede, setup as Piccolo Bass
     
  2. 1.Squier P-Bass Custom w/ DiMarzios and Custom Paint Job
    2.Harley Benton semi-acoustic
    3.(insert large amount of money here)
    4.(insert large amount of money here)
    5.(insert large amount of money here)
    6.(insert ridiculously expensive bass here)
    7.(insert ridiculously expensive bass here)
    8.(insert large amount of money here)
    9.(insert large amount of money here)
    10.(insert large amount of money here)

    any takers?
