@PatrickJ and I were talking about how many basses I’ve got through.

We had a laugh, I shared ridiculous purchases (the Samick I bought when bladdered which I then Sold to @lee650 the next day) among others...

So - from memory...

*List*

That flex though, don't hurt yourself 😜😂

I've lost track of what I had and who I sold to 😅

the entire thread was started because we were taking the proverbial out of me buying endless amounts of basses, when my sub £200 Yamaha is absolutely fine.

Anyhow, I work bloody hard and if I don’t spend it on basses...it’ll be cheap cars, fast drugs and hard women...

I figure everyone has their "thing"

Some people like fishing and spend their money on gear and permits. Some people put blingy wheels and loud exhausts on their cars.

For some of us, it's basses. As long as it's affordable and doesn't harm anyone then it's all good.

The mortgage gets paid, the car gets serviced, the cats get fed. If I've got money left to spend on a bass every now and then, where's the problem? Some people blow their money on smokes and booze. I don't. I like playing basses, I like building and repairing basses and I enjoy the different designs from an aesthetic perspective. They're tools, they're instruments and they're art pieces, all in one.

I don't mind who knows it, I'm going to say it now...

I...

If I were to have my list typed it would take an infinite amount of people typing ceaselessly until infinity for it to be completed.

My honest nearest guess - Somewhere around 2000 over the last 16ish years.

@Doctor J, I completely agree. Although most/all of my basses are cheapies, half have been bought as projects at a snip. I enjoy refinishing them and sorting any issues, so they are an enjoyable hobby to work on, then they are pieces of playable art, then if I really need to I can sell at a profit, win win win.

People happily pay £500 for a picture on the wall, this art can be taken off the wall and played, what could be better than that?

As long as the bills are paid then I'd much rather have a bass collection than a money collection.

If that's aimed my way, then yes, about that! Maybe 200-300 are 'worthy-of-this-forum' basses.

Surely they're all worthy? 

My awful 70s Kay got the most interest out any of the ones I've done.

Mrs Travis is a gooden. She chuckles and rolls her eyes when a new one comes in.

But she doesn’t care, really.

Then something goes wrong with the house or cars, she worries - I sell a bass and sort it...the. I’m a hero. And a month later - I get another bass.

I am a hero.

Just looked through the last 2 years of images on my phone and I counted 163 different guitars/basses - not including the ones I didn't sell and still have! Some were utter shite, most were reasonable, some (few) were exceptional! So it's probably more like 1500 since the 'beginning'.

Oh hardly any then 😄

Maybe you could make a statement of how many basses bought over what time scale that could be made a sticky, so that the rest of could use it when we get 'those looks' upon arrival of a new one. 😁

Fun thread. I saw the Jackson C5p in the OP and got all nostalgic for my C5a, so had to play. Just doing the ones that I no longer own, I got to 32 moved on since 1999. Not too terrible and none of them are properly expensive. I've never smoked, never done a drug that wasn't from Boots, can take or leave booze and don't like going on holiday, so.. why not!

Squier P Bass Special (black)
- My 'first' bass. Rattled and buzzed, and was quickly returned.

Yamaha BBN4ii (yellow natural satin)
- My first 'proper' bass. Brilliant thing to start on. Taught me the term 'buckle rash'' - I was livid!

Jackson C5a (tr. red)
- I have very fond memories of it, but it was as heavy as an anchor and only moderate quality.

Westfield acoustic (natural)
- Fun in its own way, but never much use to me if I'm honest. Had a case with a smell all of its own!

Ibanez BTB405qm (tr. black)
- 'My bass' for a long time. Cheap hardware and a finnicky EQ that let it down, but I still liked it.

Ibanez BTB406qm (tr. blue)
- Looked great but sounded dull and lifeless. Could never reconcile that it was the 'same' as the 405.

Yamaha RBX270 (mist green)
- Bought because I picked it up and it just sounded great. Sold when I switched to 5s. Shame.

Yamaha BB405 (yellow natural satin)
- Bought to replace the BBN4ii and was a great bass. Fitted EMGs which made.. no difference at all!

Warwick RB Vampyre 5 (black)
- Bought for the image but was actually a really nice bass. Bit too heavy in the long run, and the image changed.

BC Rich Warlock NJ5 (black)
- Sounded AMAZING with ProSteels, but just so uncomfortable. Half wish I'd kept it for recording. And photos.

Fender MIM Standard P (white) (black)
- The beginning of the change back to a mix of 4s and 5s. Had two and miss them both immensely!

Fender MIA Standard P (candy cola)
- Solid workhorse of a bass, but I picked the colour from pictures online and never liked it in person.

Fender MIA Standard P 5 (black)
- Had a badly cut nut which I got replaced, but the luthier damaged the board so that was the end of that.

Fender MIA Elite P (tr. red)
- Disappointing. Expected fireworks but got the DFA preamp and uninspiring wood grain.

Fender MIM Mike Dirnt P (black)
- Sounded lovely and had a very nice neck profile, but weighed an absolute tonne.

Fender MIM Standard J (purple)
- 2nd hand pre-WhenTheyBecameGood model. Modded it ex[t|p]ensively. Sold it at a crushing loss.

Fender MIM Blacktop J (black)
- Very nice bass. Wish I'd kept it. It just wasn't exciting.

ESP LTD Surveyor 415 (natural)
- Cool in its own way. Far too heavy to be of any long term interest.

Fender MIM Standard J 5 (black)
- Cool bass but had fit and finish issues that annoyed me. I'll maybe get a MIA one at some point.

Fender MIJ FSR 60s P (white)
- Another 2nd hand purchase. Smelled of the previous owner's aftershave. Gone.

Fender MIJ FSR 70s P (white)
- Nice when it was set up properly, but a passing cloud could affect the neck curvature.

Fender Aerodyne J (white)
- Another good one, but the neck was too twiggy for me. Shame as it was a nice bass.

Fender Kingman acoustic (natural)
- Bought to do an acoustic project that never happened. I know now that I'd just use a P.

Fender MIM Roger Waters P (black)
- Sounded really nice but had a neck like a cricket bat!

Squier CV 60s P (tomato soup)
- One of the ones that everybody raves about. It was perfectly fine, but it wasn't up to the hype.

Squier CV 70s P (black)
- Fret sprout central. If I still had it, I'd expect the neck to have the dimensions of a pencil by now.

Ibanez SR505 (iffy brown)
- Nice, but the truss rod didn't turn so I returned it. The guy in the shop tried a hammer drill. No dice.

Ibanez SR750 (nicer brown)
- I do like the SRs but the neck on the 4 string models is just too skinny for me. Stick to 5s and 6s.

Steinberger Spirit XT-2 (black)
- Supposed to be a space-saving backup bass. Never got any use and eventually went.

Musicman Sterling Ray35 (black)
- Seriously nice bass. If the 35 is this good, a 'proper' Ray 5 must be amazing, I thought...

Musicman Stingray 5 (natural)
- So disappointing. Why on earth didn't I keep the Ray35 - that was twice the bass for half the cash.

Yamaha TRB1005j (black)
- Great fun to play but really big and heavy at a point where my back hurts and I'm not up for it!

can I say ta for the folk putting the description in as well - there's a load of stuff I've been "I wouldn't mind one of them" and someone saying "had one, it was shite" helps save me money!! :D
