  1. Pointless information, of course, but entertaining to think about nonetheless :smug: .

    Some people here own a lot of basses and some other people own some very old basses. I'm curious to know what the average age and highest combined age of TBers bass guitar collections is.

    Re: Upright basses: If you're voting in the poll, please don't include any upright basses (as they can be very old and "skew" the figures somewhat), but please do add a post and tell us what age your entire collection (including uprights) would be :) .

    Anyway, I won't "win" this one, but I worked out today that the combined age of my (9) basses is 157 years old ! :eek:

    What about yours? :)

    Post your comments, or just vote in the poll, please.

    (Photos also welcome here)! ;)

    mmm..

    Fender from around 74/75/76/77 and a late 2006/early 2007 Listerud.

    i dunno how to count it. since the neck on the fender is stamped 1 week of 77, i guess i have to say 31. (the P bass being 30 and a half, and the Listerud being a half)
     
  6. :D
     
  7. Rats. I only got 30 years from mine. Squier P, 6 years, Mexican Jazz, 3 years, Stingray, 21 years.
     
  8. Maybe so, but with every 1 year that passes, your collections age will go up by 3 years ;) !
     
  9. Geez, I have 7 basses from the 80s :confused: :eyebrow:

  13. :eek: Amazing stats, thanks for your post tkoazl.

    How old is your oldest bass, out of interest (and what is it)?

    No store! :p

    Most of them are listed in my profile, I have a 65 J, a 64 P, some early 70's stuff, and I started playing back in 1980, so thats when I started...
     
  18. No, I didn't vote yet. I would need to go through them and figure out exactly what year some of them are. I wasn't ready for such a tough question this morning. Probably won't get to it until over the weekend. A rought gestimate puts things at about 175.

    EDIT, I can't even spell this morning, forget about addition :oops:
     
  19. I was hoping that this thread would attract you, CTbass&birdsong :smug: .

    I never get tired of looking at your basses.
     
  20. Yes, I read your profile first, but I wondered what the "closet" items were ..... :confused:

    Still, some tasty sounding stuff in that list. Any pictures :D ............ ?
