    Fender Highway One Jazz Bass: this was bought mostly for the neck. As in swapping it with another H1. However, I sorta like how she feels and need to do a side by side before I switch.

    Sterling Ray4 Sub series: this is, I’m telling myself, the second to last bass I want. Who knows what May actually happen (I’m thinking a custom build years from now) but for right now am excited to try her out. 3BBEE401-4565-4F85-9F44-282983DBF2B5.png

    2020 Fender Player Series: I have a PJ Squier that is my main axe, and I suppose if I want the P sound I could always just keep the bridge pickup off, but black is black, and I’ll probably put flats on her. FF470F9B-2F10-4166-87E4-3110653FF0B5.jpeg

    Pretty sure my last three purchases were my Sadowsky Verdine White, G&L CLF L-2500, and MusicMan Stingray5.

    The last three to come into my possession were the Sadowsky, a 2004 American Jazz bass, and a Precision Lyte.

    Alright, last three I got:

    June, 2019 - Stingray EX MIJ. Absolute keeper, best Stingray I've had, with that undeniable 90s mojo. Absolute beast of a stable neck and got my perfect action on it without a hitch. It just slays live.

    October, 2019 - Fender Player Precision. I got this one to have a second P bass, one with flats, one with rounds. Did a few mods (EMG GZR, 70s bridge, mint green guard, Hipshot lollipop tuners) but eventually sold it in March 2020, right before Covid really hit, because it was sitting in its case 90% of the time. I also sold a second Stingray I had for the same reason - I only need one of each.

    March, 2021 - G&L L-2000 Tribute MIJ. This one's a keeper and the final bass for my Leo trifecta collection. Plays great, got my perfect action on it, loads of great tones and versatility, seriously strong and stable neck. Just super fun to play. Again, 90s mojo for days.

    About 25 years ago I became a fan of thin pencil necks after buying an '80s Fender Performer. This interest became enhanced later by trying a shortscale '60s Vox Hawk 4 and buying a then newly released Hofner Icon violin bass.

    Several years after the above happened (and 3 years ago) I suffered minor stroke that made it necessary for me to rethink my bass and I determined that a lightweight shortscale, pencil necked slab offset waist body would be best to accommodate my bit of right side impairment resulting from the stroke.

    Guess how many companies make a lightweight shortscale, pencil necked slab offset waist body bass. That's, nada, naught, zip, zilch...bupkis.

    So I decided to cobble my own together. Therefore my last 3 basses are...all cobbled together over the last year and a half from parts or instruments I already have.

    1). Bronco body with the neck pocket shimmed to fit a Hofner Icon neck salvaged from a Hofner Icon violin bass with a damaged body, a no name humbucking Strat pickup from Amazon for under $15 and a Wilkinson bridge.

    2). Another shimmed Bronco body with an SX neck ($25 on sale) I had narrowed and reprofiled years before to the Vox Hawk dimensions, Gotoh GB350 Res-O-Lite tuners, a Mustang bass control plate and a previously modified Bronco 'guard to fit it, the same $15 pickup and another Wilkinson bridge.

    3). A DIY hollowbody made of pine and masonite designed in a more ergonomic shape to resolve some shoulder issues from the stroke. It was originally paired with the aforementioned modified SX neck, a dual coil full sized blade pickup (under $20 from Amazon), no controls, the bridge salvaged from the Hofner Icon and a DIY tailpiece. The ergonomics of the body helped a bit with the shoulder but caused other issues with my wrist so I abandoned it for now and put the neck back on the #2 Bronco above which is what I'll be using on our first show since the pandemic restrictions this Saturday.
