You'll need one of those cameras they used to take school photos with soon....then you can take the bass on the left and put it on the right and see if anyone notices :)

I don't know what I'm more impressed with. Your fine array of basses or your sofa!

Nice! The Noguera is by far the most elegant of the ERB's IMHO. Some of these really look "stretched" (especially the Streamer Stage 1 6BN and the Conklin, and the Overwater to a lesser degree) but the Noguera looks great.

In defence of the basses it was a very wide angle shot to get all of them in one photo which has stretched and skewed them a little. They are all very well proportioned in reality! There's no getting around the fact they have wider bodies than a 4 string, but the below 'non-skewed' photos should show them in a true light.

I've never had all my basses together in one place before lockdown. They seem to be getting on OK.

That's Barry, the 1979 Ibanez Roadster, older than the rest and been with me longer than the rest! He's paid his dues... he's earned his right to be on the sofa!

@GisserD love that pro tone.

Brother had a strat from the same series - great guitar.

Funny that should get a mention as its the cheapest by some margin. But really holds its own in the tone department. Strung with labella flats, its got oodles of goopy juicy wamp. I think that's the correct terminology.

It’s just two weeks ago if someone had asked me what basses Andy Travis played I would have been able to give a fairly good guess. 
 

I wouldn’t have guessed one Marcus Miller!!

 

(not really bright colour enough for you?!)
