Well at least it isn't more hand drums. I'm toying with the idea of an electric cello myself.

I found some more basses:

Swift Acoustic Fretless
This was 30 new but played as well as any acoustic bass, i.e. really, really badly. Currently in the possession of Lloyd Yate's bass player who gave me a tenner for it so I could buy groceries. Apparently it goes by the name The Blue Beast now.

SX Precision Bass
I don't remember much about this one. Someone had gone to the lengths of putting a QP in it and fitting a Hipshot A style bridge, weirdo.

I'm still missing at least two.

I still need to get a good one. There are enough well paying gigs out there for it that the cost wouldn't be a big issue. The one I use now sounds like a buzzsaw

I'm buying it anyway. There's a moral there somewhere...

The moral is that there's no good reason not to!

It's why I have so many ukulele's and am looking to add a banjo. Because bluegrass.

That was my favourite precision bass (the one I sold for 100).



I stripped the 'vintage' lacquer off.

For all the heartbreak it caused, it wasn't worth it. Call me dramatic.

Haha, it would really tie the collection together. If I could get a Cataldo using the Take It Away Scheme I'd probably have a few by now.

ESP LTD D-5:It was my first non-Ibanez/Fender bass and it was monster slap machine until I traded it for my ESP LTD F-414FM.

ESP LTD F-414FM:I got this since I was getting tired of having a bass that was a perfect slap machine and nothing else than that. I also wanted/needed a 35" scale 4 stringer for my Bb Eb Ab Db tuning.

ESP LTD F-415FM:It was supposed to be my backup to the 414 but It plays and sounds different from 414. It doesn't get played much other than recording or practice sessions.

Fender Standard Jazz V-I got this bass when I was in my "Let's Expand my Tonal Palette" mode.It was decent bass stock but it was soon modified with DiMarzio UJ's and a brass Hipshot A-Style bridge. I sold it since it was sitting in it was a case queen in the year before I sold it. I still regret selling that bass along the next to be mentioned.

Fender American Standard Precision V-My gigging Fender which unfortunately got gigged too hard and needed to be retired/sold. I found out later that the guy that bought it bass sold it a month later a friend of mine.

Fender American Deluxe Precision V:Similar to the AMStd PV but had a preamp and a TJ pup. Nothing more than case queen in my first year of owing it but it got gigged to oblivion after.I sold it since the neck was warped beyond repair and it sustained crack along the back of the heel.

Ibanez BTB-1005:This bass was "cursed" since every time I gigged the bass something would go wrong with it. From broken strings to the odd volume pot going dead. I learned my lesson that buying blind was the most idiotic thing to do.

Ibanez BTB-405:It was a home practice bass that was stupidly left overnight in a deep freezer. Sold it to friend in Japan who wanted project bass.

Ibanez BTB-775PB-My third BTB bass which never seems to run into problem other the odd fret job. This makes this main gigging bass since nothing seems to go wrong with it and it sounds/plays great.

Ibanez SR1306:My first 6er that I've owned and has seen it's days. It's a first year model with Jazz shaped dual coils. Retired from gigging and band practice.

Ibanez SR4005e:I play it rarely since I've retired it for the instability of the neck in the variable weather I get where I live.

Ibanez SR5005e:I got this bass at a police auction at a 75% discount. My dream bass that I play daily and doesn't seem to wear like it. Rarely leaves home though...

Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Special:My el-cheapo bass that's been heavily modified.

That is a nice collection there Dark Mass. I see you have had a few ESP's. I saw pics of a T-Bird type bass a few days that ESP made and thought it looked pretty cool. Have you seen it and if so, what do you think of it?

I still have my custom Jazz bass I put together five or so years ago. I plan to smash it into pieces when I eventually replace it, but I haven't played consistently enough lately to justify dropping that kind of cash on a new one. The tone is my biggest issue with it, but I'll never be satisfied with a bass's tone.

I still have my defretted Yamaha RBX170. As it turns out, I'm not a big fan of fretless basses. This one will also be smashed at some point.

And as an honorable mention, I still have my piece of trash Fender "Starcaster" guitar, but that thing's just collecting dust. I'll smash it eventually.
