    Unpictured: Robelli cheapo sorta-copy of Musicman that sounds and plays good, though the protruding ends of the frets need to be filed down.

    I have two 5 string Warwick fretted Thumb basses - one is BO and the other is an NT. I also have, and should play a lot more, a 5 string Warwick fretless with Delano electronics (the model is slipping my memory at the moment). And I have an old 4 string fretted that I don't bother with any more.
    I've had other basses of course but have sold them all.
  6. Still not sure what the "James AM" is, but it is really fine.

  8. HELP!!! The truss rod on my James snapped right below the nut. I think a rescue kit might fix it, but no way I want I risk the money on one.

    In about 100-150 years I'd expect 4 string players to be in the minority. Just over 100 years ago, 3 strings was the norm on double basses, and the reason we have 4 on the electric bass is because there were 4 on the double bass.

    However, for a multiplicity of genres and styles, more than 4 strings on a bass guitar is much more ideal.

    I play 4-string fretted.

    I know about fretless and 5-string basses, 6-string sounds exotic to me (that's going into treble) and the rest is totally alien! ;)
  14. 2011 Fender Jazz. Sweetest I have ever owned. Bought it sight unseen and amazed at what showed up.

    Just switched from 4 string fretted to 4 string fretless. I am enamored with fretless right now!
