So, here we go for one more. I needed a backup bass as it seems quite likely that I'll be on tour next year I'd been casting my eye around for a backup which could also double as my active studio bass.

Anyway, I got a backup (No 10) and it kills. Kind of like a Stingray on steroids and it only cost £240!

1. Fenix by Young Chang (short scale)

2. Alembic Stanley Clarke Signature Standard

3. Status Graphite John Entwistle Buzzard

4. Warmoth 8 string Explorer

5. Hamer Chapparal 12 string

6. Eko Florence acoustic

7. Wal Mark 2

8. Fender Classic 50s Precision

9. Rickenbacker 4003

10. Schecter Raiden - Custom

That's a nice collection going on there. Quite varied too. Liking it.

So Andy, this bass. It’s not in Billy Boy Blue colour by any chance?

Your probably waaaaay too young to get the reference, Manolito!

It's black Trevor and my mum watched High Chaparral when I was a kid. She likes westerns.

@Wolverinebass - some lovely gear you have there (as I know having had the privilege of playing several of them albeit briefly).

Loved your fBook comment btw, when you mentioned you'd recently started doing your music full time, that "we're a long time dead". Too true & massive amount of wisdom in that short phrase.

The tour sounds great. Fingers crossed for you.

Well, I'm running my studio full time now rather than part time. I came to the decision that if I didn't do it now I never would. That's my shameless plug for this thread now! 

I might try and get a covers gig for a laugh and see if I can do it. You're more than welcome to pop over if you want Bas. I'm doing 2 original bands at the moment so the variety of instruments is why I have them all. None of them sound like each other.

I'm now at seven. It used to be ten at one point, but seven is fine. For now.

-1966 Fender Jazz Bass
Original except for the frets and the finish.

-1971 Fender Precision Bass
Original except for the frets, the bridge chrome cover and the finish.

-2013 De Gier Bebop 5
Custom built for yours truly. First Bebop ever with dot inlay and neck binding.

-2018 Dingwall Combustion 5 Trans White
Played this bass at the 2018 LBGS and now I have it. But not before Yolanda Charles played it.

-2002 Fender Standard Jazz Bass fretless
Lollar pickups, epoxied fingerboard, Gotoh 201 bridge, black pickguard. Best fretless I've ever owned and probably ever will own. This bass is made for me.

-2001 Blade B2 Tetra Bass
Nordstrand pickups, Aguilar OBP-1 preamp, otherwise original. Amazing 70's sound that feels great. 

-2001 Yamaha BB N5II
My second bass ever, tuned EADGC. Will never sell this.

I know how you feel.  I passed on a WAL Mk 1 for £200 in 1991.

Not one of my better decisions. 😕

I think he’s either referring to the number of gigs he's doing in the next three months or the age of his mistress 😁

Check out the Tools & Boxes page on my website for my basses. 

The number of gigs in the next 3 months is 42.

Yeh, yeh... 

Cut the guff, all we're really interested in is how old your mistress is 😂

3 in the house, 4th with a luthier. I will use this thread to demonstrate my remarkable restraint to erindors next time a snide, rolled eyes comment is made.
