Ok, here we go. My list is quite short despite playing bass for close on 40 years.
1974 Fender Precision, natural. 1st bass. Bought in 1983 from a music shop in Charing Cross Glasgow. Neck like a banana. Sold it after 6 months for a
1982 JV Precision '57 from CC Music Glasgow. Great bass but wanted 2 pick up, so sold it after a year for a
1982 JV Jazz, CC Music again. Painted it yellow, then blue, defret byJimmy Moon, EMGs. Sold on ebay 25 years later. Was my only bass until 1989 when I bought a
1987 Stingray 3EQ from Sound Control Glasgow. Replaced neck with a Status graphite. Didn't like it, went back to original neck.
1990 Epihone Semi acoustic. Moved to Paris. Thought would be there for 6 or so months [was actually 10 years]. Bought it from a Paris music store. Gave it away.
1978 Stingray. Always wanted a pre-eb stingray. Bought a great one on ebay in 2003 which I sold to a basschatter in 2015. Great bass but preferred the contours and the cutting sound of the 3EQ which was 1 kilo lighter plus I had moved to 5 string.
1990s Ken Smith Burner 5. Bought here on Basschat. 16mm spacing a no go, so sold it for a
1993 Tobias Killer B. Bought on Basschat. Amazing sound and neck. Crap balance and painful truss rod adjustment. Sold it for a
2000 Stingray 5. Bought 2013 on ebay. Still have it. Incredibly light. Will get a Status fretless neck for this in a few months.
Then went the boutique route with funds from the 1978 Stingray sale to buy
1991 Ken Smith BT6. Ebay bargain. Was after a 5 string but hard to find so bought this instead. Looks great, sounds even better. But the heaviest bass I have ever had and don't need 6 strings. Not sure I will keep it. Also found out the circuit has been replaced with a Warwick one but sourced an original from Ken Smith himself this January.
1990s Alembic Essence 5. Neck heavy and small body don't mix. Sold to a basschatter.
1990 Ken Smith BT5. Bought from a basschatter. Don't use it as much as I should. Very light. Amazing condition compared to the BT6.
