    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 . . .

  20. '65 Mosrite Ventures. I used it as my only bass until 1992 when I started playing 5-strings.
