    '66 dot neck Jazz. I've only had it since 1984 though. I need to take a better photo:

    Can hardly read the serial number, but best I can tell, an early sixties Gibson EBO.

    All but one of my basses are mid to late 90's models but I do have a Cort B2A 'Steinie' copy that was made in the early to mid 80's. That's as far as I go back. If I still had my old Univox, that would be early 70's.

    '58 Fender Precision that I bought in '67. It's been mod'ed a lot over the years, nowhere near "mint" stock collectable, but it sure plays nice. Now, if it only had 5 strings instead of 4 . . .
