Meh, overpriced nonsense and lies. I know other people with the RXT bass. The prices on the other basses are dreamland too...

Not for me, but thanks anyway!

Didn’t realise there were more - I’ve seen pictures of it before, but assumed it was just this one.

It seems to have a different bridge from his signature model, for a start. It may well be the prototype and different in details.

Seemingly, 9 at the moment.  That's probably 4 more than I really want but selling's a hard thing to do.  Maybe next year 😁

At the moment I suspect I have more than 10. But I can't count them, that would be rude, plus if I count them then it becomes real and I would have to accept I had too many.

If it helps, I have 25.

Which is definitely too many, but also not enough.

Sold a few and bought one recently so i'm down to 7 with my Dingwall NG2 up for sale at the moment.

I might look at a Limelight P bass when i sell the NG2.

Now back to just one, my trusty bitsa Precision, which started life as a 2003 MIM. Only bits left original are the body, bridge and knobs. About to get a Kiogon transplant.

That's all, folks!

my go to bass is a Sandberg California TT custom , I’ve also got , 8 jazzes, 2 p basses, a Washburn force 4 , Yamaha 415, and a semi acoustic bass, there’s probably  1 jazz I would sell ,     but I’ve got a really bad urge at the moment for a shell pink Limelight jazz 🙂

You can’t go wrong with a kiogon transplant, I’ve got a few myself, just amazing 🙂

Yup, had some before, really good. A quick big up for Obbm's cables, too. The best.

Oops, 7 now.

Found a 2001 Squier Jazz with somewhat lifeless pickups but a very nice neck and really great 'genuinely played in' feel.

One year on from my first post in this thread and I've gone from three up to six. In that time I've also sold two and got one more for sale. If that sells it'll fund a Jazz that I've got one eye on in the classifieds.

I don't want to gig and I don't in all honesty want to play every day. They are nice things to own though and, as has already been stated earlier in the thread, are quite benign in the great scheme of collecting things. They hold their value and, if you choose wisely, don't depreciate (but I'm not doing very well in respect of the one I'm selling now).

They'll all go up for sale eventually, when I need the money for something else!

Careful now, look how it can end up! This isn't everything...

Fortunately for my bank account I have no idea who Rex Brown is!😇

He used to be known as Rex Rocker, and was in a band who released 3 great albums, before selling out and changing their style completely to fit in with the prevailing popular rock/metal genre.

One of the few bands whose attempt at jumping on the band wagon worked for them.

A lovely collection :D And having visited BreadBin and played most (or all of these...) I have to say the man has impecable taste in basses. The jazz second in from the right at the top is, in particular, a thing of beauty and plays and sounds so good.

For me... I'm down to one - a Warwick Rockbass 4 LX in metallic blue that I picked up for a very reasonable price recently. Everything else apart from my TE Elf + 2 Ampeg 2x10 cabs has been sold. I would probably like to add the Rockbass's fretless brother (sister? sibling...) at some point, but hard to justify at the moment as I only play at home and haven't played anywhere else in rather a long time. My musical attention is mostly on computer-based music these days, even the bass is virtual...

I rather like the one next to that one, with the piece of paper under the strings, are they tapes on that one 🙂

Just one and a half now - the half being a Steinberger Spirit that only gets used in hotel rooms.... no, not like that... 🙄
