    hope this hasn't been done before. This is inspired by latest post from Dave Grossman. Dave owns 6 Hanies!!

    Who owns 10 MTDs? lol 5 foderas? 7 F basses??? and so on.

    Just curious... ;)

    Mark C. has what, like, 6 or 7 FBBs. Jared's been through some Foderas. Jeff Rader and Fhodshon (and someone else, but forgive me, I can't recall your name...Jim is it?) are a little heavy on Sadowskys. JT shouldn't even count...:D (but Mark B might be catching up on him soon!) Treena is a bit Fender-crazy. Boogie's been through the selections. I'm with Ty on this one...I'll start collecting Roscoes once I get through this stupid college thing. ;)
  8. 2 F basses for me

    I have a huge collection of Steinbergers with whammy bars... one. But considering there's less than 200 of them in the world, I'd say that's pretty good!

  11. I own two Music Mans., a Stingray5 and a Stingray4 fretless.

    Two Lakland Skylines here, a Joe Osborn and a 44-01 fretless. I'd like to get a 55-02 at some point.

    My main bass is a Pedulla Thunderbolt. I plan to get a fretless Pedulla (probably a Buzz) later this year. (Does that count?) ;)

    Does sequential ownership count? I've owned 6 Wals, just not at the same time...

    I think that's him. I could picture his avatar, and think of the little tag line under his name, but just not his name!

    I'd never tease about an FBB! If yours has guts in it, I'd trade you flat.

    it's calling you... adron, adron...
    come to mark's gig saturday at Indulgence. Give him your FBB.
    You are feeling very generous...
    now bark like a duck!

    I've had 4 Roscoe's (down to 1) & 3 Fenders (down to 2). I've since decided to have no more than 1 or 2 of any given brand since I believe each great luthier/design brings something unique to the tonal pallete. I do tend to try and pair them up though:

    SC5 Nordstrand & SC5 Elrick fretless
    black '66J and black '75P fretless
    blonde Lakland 55-94 & soon to be blonde Benavente '51 PJ5
    The faux marble Roscoe and metallic purple (pink :eek: )Genesis 5 aren't matched, but they match the family room decor and are untouchable as per "she."
