    I have enough musical instruments around to have a hoedown! Here is a hastily arranged family photo of most of the brood.

    Photo Jan 01, 2 12 19 PM.jpg

    First row L-R: Warmoth PJJ, Warmoth PJP, Kala SUB4FS, Ibanez AS73, Yamaha BB414
    Second row L-R: Seagull Performer Mini-Jumbo, Kala KA-ASOV-T, Kentucky KM-150, Recording King RR-50
    Top: Fender Gemini III Dreadnaught

    Every one gets some playing time regularly and almost all of them have been to a gig. I am a bassist at heart but I love having a variety of instruments hanging around just because.

    If you have a myriad of instruments alongside your bass, post a family photo of your own!

    I have congas, a cajon, 3 acoustic guitars, 3 electric guitars, a mandolin, a synth, a piano, 3 guitar amps....

    I rarely use any of it. I will get on a guitar kick and play guitar heavily for a month, same with the mandolin but don't play much of the other stuff.

    I need to thin the herd soon methinks.

    My daughter is a trombone player, and already a far better musician than I am. As a result, there are two straight trombones, two trigger trombones, a valve trombone, a baritone, a saxophone, a keyboard and a few acoustic guitars in the music room alongside all my basses.

    These two. PRS SE Singlecut and Santana. Both have upgraded pickups (Seymour Duncan).

    They all have superpowers. They're not supposed to allow themselves to be caught using them!

    One of his super powers is sleeping 23hrs a day. That was easy to uncover.

    Lucky, the roomates dog.

    I think we may have a couch too: I'll have to look under the dirty clothes.

    Two guitars, as small PA, a piano, a drum kit, a refrigerator, a couch, and two chairs. Plus some recording stuff like microphones and an external hard disk. Oh, yeah, a couple small guitar amps, a bigger one, and three bass stacks. I really like bass stacks because overkill isn't enough.
  19. I converted my master bedroom into an instrument storage room. My basses share space with guitars, mandolins, amps, PA gear, and an old, deaf, toothless cat. He started out as a foster but since his owner was committed to an institution 2 months ago (that's a long, crazy story in itself), I think he's mine now. He hates my other 2 cats and is FIP+ whereas they're negative, so I keep them apart. He spends most of his time sleeping and has never bothered any of my gear. I let him out for a few hours every day when I lock the other 2 in the basement. Murray Cases.jpg

    It's actually coral pink. Gibson did a limited run of SG guitars and basses in 2006 they called the surf collection. They had canary yellow, coral pink and coral blue
