You can only keep 1!

Recommended Posts

Thought it might be a bit of fun.... having been the owner of quite a few basses and acquired a couple of bucket listers ... I thought it would be nice to hear which of your collection you would keep and why. You simply love it? Your first bass? It’s an investment? 

Rules are simple. You must have owned it or currently own it (sellers regret welcome). 

I would keep my Status. It’s a 2019 S2, headed 4 string.  It plays like a dream. Sounds awesome with some fat lows on a 4 string! It’s just great as an all rounder. It’s light and it’s purple

My 64 Precision. Everything else is replaceable. Well, except my 60 P... but if I had to choose one it would be the 64.

Bass doc p in the “relic refuge” thread. Never tweaked it, never needed to

My 2015 black/black/maple US Fender Precision, no contest. Recorded our last 3 albums on it (two of which were voted 22nd best of the year albums in the punk genre in the years they were released) did my first few Rebellion Festivals and first few European tours with it. Too much sentimental value attached to it to ever move it on. I love all of my basses but that one also plays the best so aside from sentiment it’s my best bass as well.

I think my Maruszczyk Elwood L fretless. It’s my go to and is amazingly versatile.

That all just goes together so well, it looks fantastic.

They don't get a lot of love on here but mine would have to be my Variax. I love the neck on it and the versatility of tones wins over any others if I can only keep one.

It would have to be the Wal, spent nearly 2 years waiting on the build. Don't think I could afford another if it went.

That's an easy decision. Keep the one you play the most.

That’s a really nasty question! 

P Basses are my soul-bass, so if I was still physically able to join a band it’d be my Lull PJ4 all day long. 

But as I’m a home player, it’d be my Stingray Special HH as it’s so versatile and Ray’s were my first love so it’s no hardship.

Oof. That’s definitely not stock, is it?

No, I had little fiddle with it. 😁

There is a build thread but all the pictures disappeared in change of server. 

Basically reshaped headstock and scratchplate, added f hole, binding and bridge cover, and refinished in vintage white. 

🙂

      With no gigs or rehearsals anytime soon I've decided to challenge myself to learn a song a day in the month of may.
      Now it's not quite gonna be a song a day because I'm still working & trying to home-school an 8 year old (he's already learnt the blues scale, how to steal an XR3i & how to roll a banging joint) (of course I'm joking).
       
      I decided to keep it British & learn all the songs that I love but never had the opportunity to play in bands.
       
      Today was A Thousand Trees by them dead good Welsh Gits.
      I chose it because it's dead bouncy & I really like the lyrical content.
      The only challenge for me was playing with round-wound strings because since I got the country gigs I've been using flats.
      No Biggie, my fingers will adjust.
      Tomorrow I'll be having a go at When The Sun Goes Down by them dead good Northern Gits.
       
      So that's it for me, you're all invited to tag along, it's just for shiz n gigs.
      If you do join in let us know what you're learning & why.
       
      Cheers Y'all
