Everyone seems to have their own '05 thread, and I didn't want to get left out. I may be obsessive, but I've spent many nights laying awake thinking about basses I'd like to own. I even drew up a "gas list" broken down by catagory at one point. Anyway, these are basses that I was preoccupied with for at least a week, not just "I saw a picture and thought it was pretty." I lost interest in many of these basses rather quickly. It's a good thing I'm not rich, or I'd have a pile of basses I'm bored with. Let see if anyone can top this. Ibanez ATK Cort Curbow MM Bongo HHP 4 (major GAS) MM Stingray LeCompte everything Epi T-Bird (don't know how that one got in there... it's not my style at all) Ibanez EDA900 Dingwall Afterburner (bought one) Ibanez BTB405 (bought one... bored with it) Ibanez Musician (almost bought it) Modulus Flea Dingwall Super J (maybe when I'm rich) Fender MM Jazz (would have bought it if I could afford it) Knuckle Quake (major GAS) Peavey G-Bass Peavy T-40 (almost bought one) SX Jazz (the price is just so attractive) G&L L-2500 Tobias Growler (almost bought this instead of the BTB... glad I didn't) MTD Kingston/Heir (should have bought this instead of the BTB) MTD American (good thing I can't afford it) Roscoe SKB-3500 (played one and LOVED it) Wal anything Hamer 2-Tek Jazz Rob Allen Mouse Skjold everything Warmoth Carved top P/MM The funniest thing about this is I play guitar as much as bass, and I've been perfectly happy with one solidbody electric, and one acoustic for years.
