    Um... I don't even know where to start. Probably a Ric 4001 or a Fender 57' in white blonde with gold anonized pickguard and maple fretboard

    A maple cap neck Telecaster with butterbean tuners.
    A mary Kay '62 AVS Jazz bass.
  3. A 3/4 eub.

    I am pretty well set right now but another 6er would be my next GAS item. A Modulus, Pedulla or even a F Bass BN6 would likely be the "cure".

    In my price range, the new Schecter Riot 5 string with the burl top.

    Outside of my price range, a custom made Benavente sinclecut with a buckeye burl top.

    Realistically - another Spector. The European neck through. I haven't decided on a finish. I really like the natural woods, but I like the blue quite a bit and the green seems really cool too. Also pondering the Ian Hill model because of the thinner neck. Downside: the lefties are all four month special orders. I have a Rebop in black cherry that I lucked upon...

    Actually needed: some cabs and a good power amp to go with my RBI.

    Semi-realistically: a Fafner head or a Mesa Boogie Titan V12 (just because)

    Unrealistically: the Eventide H8000.

    Some more Dulop Blue Tortex pics,

    and a 6 pack of Fender 7150's. :)

    Other than that, I'm all set.

    O.K. maybe a nice lightweight , compact 2x10 cab. ;)

    A Pino Pallidino Precision. Unfortunately, it costs more than I paid for my "real" 1965 P and used ones are hard to find. :rollno:

    I'm currently thinking of selling my 51P:


    ...and replacing it with a '62 American Vintage RI.


    Please talk me out of it (or into it). ;)

    Is that at Kenny's, Steve?? Do they still have a decent selection of EBMM's??

    Last time I was there, I played (and loved) a white SR4HH w/maple board. Seriously considering another trip up there to see what he has now.

    I just know what feels most comfortable to me....I used to have 36" scale/19mm spacing basses.....my little hands just didn't dig that.....and my playing has changed and the smaller basses just work for me best. I've got a Ristola 33" scale bass with 16.5mm spacing in the works. I'm very excited.
