    I have 14 basses, 2 of them are on my "have to own one before I kick" list. Slowly I plan on having the Dream Herd.

    Theres no magic number but here's my Dream Herd:

    -MTD 535 exotic top/maple board
    -Kubicki Ex-Factor 5 in spalt
    -Vintage Spector NS2
    -1966 Jazz Fiesta Red Stock with Dots, Binding and Oval Tuners
    -Alembic Series 2 Triple Omega 5vr/LED's
    -Pedulla Hexabuzz Bluegreenburst PJ setup
    -Original Tobias Basic 6
    -Ric 4003 Blueburst with VTC (Own it)
    -Lecompte TRX-5 (its in production)

    So, hey now....you? What is your GAS Ending, never to visit paypal again Bass List?

  4. thats kinda tough my gas list changes daily
    weekly monthly by the second even

    my dream bass was a Jazz Bass
    and I own one

    but i always had a hankering for atleast one EBMM Stingray
    and a decent P Bass

    but if I bit the dust I would be happy in knowing I owned my Jazz
    and rocked out in college with it

    The 5 basses I have minus 2 that are up for sale.

    Seriously, I finally realized all I need are a J, a P, and a Music Man.

    You'll find lots of replies to that question in this thread (link points to mine).

    BTW, the Kubicki Ex-Factor only comes in 4-string version. There's the Key Factor 5, which is a 34" scale bass with standard tuning system (unless you're looking to detune the low B down to an A, the extension clip of the Ex-Factor doesn't make much sense on a 5-string).

    A few Dingwall Prima Artist with different tonal orientations would do it for me. Maybe a nice fretless as well... about brand gas, I'd like to have an MTD 535, a Sei Flamboyant and a Ritter Seal, but I think I'd survive with the aforementioned Dingwalls :smug:

    I realistically have them all, except for the one in transit, and the one I'll get in Feb.

    Three I already have: Jazz, Precision, and DiPinto Belvedere, plus

    the G&L L-1500 I have on order;

    Dingwall Super J with P/J pickups;

    Lakland Hollowbody lined fretless;

    one or two modern, aggressive five strings, like Fodera, MTD, or HH Stingray; and

    maybe a five string Jazz.

    Youre right, I guess that GAS will never be tamed then.;)

    There's like thirty or forty different guitars and basses, a couple of different rigs, and some nifty boutique pedals. No way in hell can I list it all.

    Oh man, for that I'd need a lot of cash!

    I mean, I've got one bass which would have to have in the list, my 1989 white Kubicki Ex-Factor. After that, we're looking at a lot of Status, Alembic and Fodera basses...
     
  15. My dream herd is quite realistic, it consists of as many old Yamaha BBs as possible, I already have 3... :smug:
