    Ok, so "ridiculous" is subjective. But who takes the cake? Could be a TBer with hundreds of basses, or maybe you just have a ton of mint condition vintage basses? Or maybe your basses are all lime green. There's a guy on here who has like 30 SX basses that are all blue (he'd probably get my vote), and another that has 2 of every Leo-made bass (for the new ark?), one flats one rounds. Nominate with pics! Maybe I'll put a poll up if this gets interesting.

    if I told you they'd have to kill me, but anyone with a Gibson EB-1 violin for starters is ok with me

    Whoah... how much does it cost to tour your music room, is it extra to touch some of them? I can fly out next week.

    I convert 4 string Rickenbackers to 5 string basses.
    well here's some of the basses that I owned, most are no longer owned by me and just cam through my workshop, and a few are just cool basses
