    What is the last bass that you bought? How much did you buy it for, and from where? How long have you had it? How do you like it?

    The last bass I bought was my Hamer USA B12L 12 String. Thing sounds like a grand piano. Can't be used for everything, but when you really want to fill the sonic presence of a song, this is the bass to do it with. I got it at Guitar Center in Roseville, MI for $1800.00. I'd never give it up.

    Here is my latest, a MTD Saratoga 5 string. Yup, I've given in and gotten a five (although it will have a high C rather than that worthless low B ;) ). I should be getting it in a few weeks.

    Well, here's the last thing I have purchased and received.

    Modulus Flea Bass 4 string w/Lane Poor pickup and OBP-3 Preamp. Bought online for $1000, had for two months.

    Great bass. Slap machine, very punchy. I upgraded the obp-1 it came with to an obp-3 to get treble cut and the mid control.

    Fender 1998 Roscoe Beck 5. $750 from Rumble Seat Music.

    It's actually going to duke it out with the Flea for the last spot in my bass 'rotation'.

    I have modern totally covered with my Warwick, Elrick and Aria. But I'm thinking I need a vintage option, hence the RB5.

    Last bass I bought....

    I got a 94 MIM P w/ Basslines QP's. It's all dirty and beat up, but it sounds like an absolute monster!

    I didn't pay a dime for it. I traded my first bass cab [Hartke 410 TP] in for it. (And I got the bass cab as a birthday present from a good buddy of mine about 9 years ago.)

    However, I will be making another purchase in the next 24 hours. :)
     
  16. Here's the last bass I bought.. my Curbow Jazz. Picked it up in June of 2002. This oughta hold me for a few years..
