    I can't remember how much I spent. Actually, I don't want to. LOL. What I do now most of the time is sell one to buy one.

    For those of you with a lot of basses, which I guess I would probably interpret as over 5, do you find a serious use for each one? I'm not asking this to be mean, seriously, I'm curious. How do you find a use for those, especially something like 14? Is it just that you're in the habit of collecting, which is fine of course, or do you really find that that many is necessary?

    PS. Oh yeah, I have 2.
  7. 1. Cheap DB
    2. Pedulla Buzz
    3. Epi Rivoli
    4. Gibson Thunderbird
    5. RIC 4001
    6. Musicvox 12
    7. Fender Jazz
    8. Ampeg Smoked Clear
    9. Warwick Thumb
    10.Peavy Foundation
    11.Wicked cheap bass made by a company called Kimberly

    Mostly just like collecting them. #10 and 11 are at a friend’s house and I never play them but my friend uses the Peavey. #11 is on her wall because her name is Kimberly' like the bass.
    #12 Well it’s an Ashbory it was cheap and is cool to pickup sometimes. #9 The Thumb bass is what I play the most.#8 Is just because I always wanted one.#7 The Jazz, well everyone should have a Jazz.#6 the 12 is a great bass and its a 12 string not much to say except it sounds incredible for the proper tune. #5 and #6 have their one sound going for them and are great when you want to practice but every thing sounds the same to you, pick up one of these and the ideas start flowing. #3 for that classic old school sound, extreme fatness. #2 because it is my first "real" bass plus its fretless, just one of those basses that you don't sell once you own. and #1 because I have always wanted to play DB and am finally making the effort. But mostly because I just like collecting them. :D:D

    only seven...

    1. Ibanez SR2005
      Yamaha RBX260F
      MIM Fretless Jazz
      Dean Rhapsody HBF
      70's (fretless) Ripper
      Epi Casady
      Rob Allen MB-2 #115
      I hardly play at all. But I AM a chronic futzer.
      The Yammer got a new pup, wiring and bridge.
      Ditto planned for the MIM Jazz. Gonna' try `n
      cram a RioGrande Powerbucker in the Dean.
      Fixin' up the Ibanez fiver for a bud.

      ...seein's how the Ripper's mint, I gotta' paint it magenta
      to hide that god-awful clear maple finish. The Casady
      just don't sound right...addin' two J's oughta' fix that. Then,
      the R/A ain't cuttin' it through my Lectrosonics Moose.
      I wanna' make it look just like a Strat...a dull jigsaw and
      3 EMG-HZ's !
  9. i have just one bass, an Ibanez GSR190.....

    ....yay me.....
  10. you are harsh!:D:D:D:D:)

    I'm dang near 40 and I think my chances of gettin'
    appointed Charges d' Affairs are fadin' fast :p .
    Hence the caustic venting. :)
  12. Hey der Nino, does that Turser have a real deal Music Man humbucker? Does it sound good with it? I would like to put a genuine MM or bassline pickup in A Turser 'Ray. What comments do you have about the bass as a whole.
  13. yeah buddy. welcome to club one-bass. myself presiding. :D
  14. "I'm not only the president, I'm also a client!" :D
  15. I only have two, my Yamaha RBX260F, and my Squire Bronco, although I'm currently saving up for an MIM Fender J-Bass, and I'd sell my Squire. Although after that, I only really want a Fender P-Bass, I can't see much use for more than that. But I'm not even in a band or anything.
