JT, Brad Johnson, Funky, Steve ?
What, no poll?
JT's collection is too vertical for me (pretty much just one bass, IMO). FunkyC's changes so frequently that I don't know what he has at the moment... and I think he's ditching his 535 so I penalize him for that. Without knowing Steve's collection, I give the award to my homey Brad Johnson, who's got a very nice variety of excellent basses.
But I like my collection a lot, too!
Nice collection fuzzbass!!
Which one is your favorite?
I would say JT, but as Fuzzbass said, his collection is just too vertical. I give another vote to Brad.
Definitely Brad's. Nino-Brown's is a bit one-dimensional but still pretty high-quality.
I say nino brown! always vote for the under dog!
There is cat in Detroit who puts us all to shame. he builds high price houses for a living. For every house he finishes, he buys another one of a kind hand made bass. When I met him in Jan of 2000 he had 53 basses.
Very nice!....But, wait! What the hell is that??!! A PT CRUISER?!?
Sounds like my guitar buddy. He's a major contractor down here in Atlanta and has his own recording studio and miniature gym--in his basement. He probably has over 30 different guitars.
But, hand-made basses? Wow!
Alot of us have GREAT collections. I have to vote for myself, thou.
I like Embellisher, RS, FuzzBass, JT, Brad Johnson, Joe Nerve & many other members collections.
Allen Woody, yo. (R.I.P.)
P.S. - I did sell my MTD (to fellow TB'er Jerry J), but I got a 635--no fancy top, tulipwood body.
I love FC collection... it has many tones and feelings... maybe if he threw a Zon in the collection...
OK...last count I had over 150 basses... (and I have bought a few since then.) Several Fenders, several Gibson, several old Guilds, several Warwicks, three USA Tobias, three Pedullas, a bunch of German made things from the 60's, several Hagstroms, and a ton more... honest!
Well hey, the gear simply won't fit into my Lamborghini Countach.
i like my collection the best. obviously, since i've paid for it .
i was going function, and since there are few 7+ string bass makers other than conklin, i don't have many options. i have yet to play any basses that i've liked more than my conklins, and only the 7 string gold seal style ritter 7 came close. i hope to add that one to my collection someday very soon.
Hey guys... I feel like an amateur... I only have 2 Sadowskys, 2 Laklands, Pulcinella Level 5 and hopefully soon a Joe Osborne 5 and I have my eye on a Moon 5 or a Lull MV-5... And I drive a Pathfinder... Hey FuzzBass, how do you like your LullPJ-5 ??? Steven...
yah, I'm a little behind the curve myself, but I've got a few amassing gradually...closing in on the big 20. They're at the link in my sig file.
pretty much one bass? how do you figure? i've got all kinds of different woods, electronics, pickups and string configurations going on. i got hollow body, semi hollow, solid, neck through, bolt on, fretted, fretless.
I'd like to put Matt Schmill's kids through college the way JT has with Bill Conklin's...
Matt, are you reading this? Are you interested in building a doubleneck fretless 6/fretted 10 (doubled 5)?
Shoot, I forgot the winkie... here ya go: Yes, you might have as much tonal variety in your one-builder collection as anyone, but they all look like freakin' Conklins!! I don't mean that in a bad way; but in spite of your variety of tops and MeltedWood and whatnot your collection is still vertical looks-wise, so there. If you want my vote, go buy a Rickenbacker or something.
P.S. There are so many orGASmically great collections here I can't actually pick a #1.
