I almost went a little deeper in plastic debt about a year ago when I came across a really gorgeous '76 in Autumnglo......Most beautiful bass I ever laid eyes on, it almost "converted' me"! :lol:

My favorite and #1 bass is the '72 oly white P.

The 3 basses to the left of it - the 71 and 69 sunburst P's and the Dakota Red Mustang - are the 3 newest ones in the family.

Out of the jazz basses - my favorite is the lake placid blue one. It's made in Japan - but it plays really well - no dead spots - and I threw a set of Jason Lollar pickups in it - and now it plays and sounds just like a real 60s jazz bass - at a fraction of the cost.

I played the paisley tele bass for 2 years solid. Put a few dings in it along the way. It's also MIJ - but it was not made for export - and is VERY different than those pink paisley teles that were imported a year later. My bass sounds and plays much better than those pink ones.

The short-scales basses on the left are great for when my arthritis/carpal tunnel is at me. Usually when the weather changes. They're great basses.

The japanese candy apple red P-bass I picked up for $300 and I put a baddass II bridge on it. It sounds, plays and sustains a hundred times better.


The '69 P-bass will be all over the new Council recordings. That bass plays like a dream - but it's 9.5/10 - and I only use it for studio sessions.

I try and play all of them as much ass possible.


I've considered thinning the herd and buying that '68 blue floral off of e-bay.... but is a bass really worth $25k?
