Ok..the current lot looks like this:

73 (maybe 71..there's some neck body disagreement) Fender P Bass, Sunburst w/ tourtise shell pickguard and maple neck. (my first Bass, bought in 1983 from a guy in a Ska band in Boulder, CO...I've lived on Ramen Noodles just to make sure this never got sold. He put on this weird pick holder that will only hold some kind of copper picks that I've never taken off because well..I never have.) Still my favorite instrument and sounds like a PBass should.

Warwick Corvette Proline 4 in Flame Maple Blue Satin. Active MEC pickups are nice..this thing has the warwick growl and really sounds great thru my Line 6 PodXT Live. I lead worship playing this a lot.

2002 MIJ/CIJ '62 reissue Fender JBass, White w/Black pickguard and rosewood fingerboard, alder. Duncans are being installed as I write this.

2005 MIJ/CIJ '62 reissue JBass, Walnut Brown, black pickguard, rosewood fretboard, ash, black hardware. I bought this from a Tokyo dealer who had this cool looking bass that I'd never seen before. It's unique . I dunno if I'll keep it.

Just sold a Music Man Sterling, that a friend just had to have. I miss it. Had that MM ring. Bought from Beaver at Bass Central a few years back. I'd probably buy another one if the right one came along.

I've owned a Smith and an Alembic. Also had a Warrior fretless for a while. The higher end basses are nice, but I'm not player enough to justify keeping them around.

Here's my Aria Pro II I played when I was in college. My buddy keeps it at his house so I always have an axe available in case we want to jam. I gave it a good cleaning and set-up.

My aforementioned Foundation with the Billy Sheehan DiMarzio Model One p/u. It's a beater, but it sounds great. I plan on adding a coil tap for the Model One and am considering swapping the neck with a maple fretboard Foundation. The neckplates match, but I'm not sure about the necks themselves...

Drool over THIS, baby! Drool

Very rare 80's-era Hamer Scarab Bass w/ Kahler Bass Trem, in Black Chrome hardware, just like Rick Savage thumped on in the early Def Leppard days! Drool It's not a Carvin, but a quality American handcrafted instrument, nonetheless. Also have a Cort headless Steinberger copy with P+J pickups, and an Ibanez GSR-200 with P+J pickups. I love this Hamer, but may be putting it on eBay before too long, though... Crying or Very sad

Thanks, Woody, but I really don't like the neck. And I don't like the lack of balls of the sound, but that's what they're all about I guess. What I do love is how light it is (I think about 6.75 lbs.) and the narrow string spacing. The LB20 I have on order should be around 7 lbs. I hope. I requested the lightest piece of Swap Ash they could find.

I've got a Yamaha RBX170 for a bassline beater when recording. It's far from a great axe, but it does have the Carvin J99 in the bridge. Mr. Green

And in regards to the other replies, does that mean Foot Throttle? Laugh Hard

I guess you didn't put in a high enough bid, huh.

It's good that you keep telling us you went to MI, in case some of us forgot, or for the benefit of any new folks that didn't know. Rolling Eyes
