    Actually, I've corrected it. Seven are electrics, including a 1955 P, a 1971 P, a 1991 '51 RI P-bass, a 2000 55-01, a 2001 Jazz Classic MIM, a 2003 (I think) Valenti, and a 2006 Sadowsky P/J.

    1955 - 52 years
    1971 - 36
    1991 - 16
    2000 - 7
    2001 - 6
    2003 - 4
    2006 - 1
    ------------
    subtot 122 years + 157 for the 1850 upright = 279 years. Yipes! :D

  3. 1991 - 16 years
    1997 - 10 years
    2004 - 3 years
    2005 - 2 years
    2006 - 1 year

    grand total 32 years...I have to find a really nice 10 year old bass so that I can match my age :)

    Maybe a 1996 Ibanez ATK 700...now that would be cool.

  6. :D Thanks John! I thought it would be fun to talk about something else, other than the latest fashions in basses, or the $ value of stuff.

    This way, everyone can contribute something and I get to see who has which basses (never know when that might be useful ;) )!

    Post on folks!
     
  7. Well, don't be ;) ! No shame in that, JimB52.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what's the difference between a '96 Precision 50th and a '01 Precision 50th :confused: ? (Apart from 5 years, of course :D ).

    The '96 50th anniversary of Fender Precision is the gold hardware flame maple body limited edition and the 2001 is the 50th anniversary of the Precision butterscotch body black metal PG vintage tint neck.

    i sold my fretless so all i have now is a fender jazz delux from december 2006...a baby.
     
  10. OK, so the first one is the later P Bass shape and is celebrating 50 years of Fender, whereas the other one is the old shape P Bass and is to commerate 50 years of that design .... or are they both the later P Bass shape? (still confused :confused: ).
     
  11. 1 Bass that's 1 year old (sold everything else), and 1 that's about 1 month premature! So..

    11 months. Sad.. :crying: :p

    30-odd years. Two basses from the 80's and a Squier VM fretless made last year. Still, it might only be 20-odd...
