I have 3 short scales, and thought I was pretty well set… until I recently got the idea that I now absolutely need an acoustic bass. (just as a fun thing to pick up and practice with, and not plug in)
I found a used Ibanez PNB14EOPN on Reverb, and just ordered it yesterday. My first thought was to adhere to a “one in, one out” mentality like some people practice. (especially some married folks like myself, in order to keep the peace)
My Sterling Stingray and Squire Jr Jag get the most love, so my Gretsch Jr Jet II has become the odd man out. Beautiful instrument, feels and sounds great, but in order to make room for the new one, decided it must go. I got the box down from the attic and was about to start taking photos… but then thankfully, I sat down and starting playing with it a bit. (and knew instantly I could not say goodbye!)
I think I will just keep the Ibanez out of site for a couple of weeks once it arrives- I have a birthday next month, and it will just become my present so my wife won’t have to shop this year. So yes, now there will be four.
Hopefully this will satisfy me for awhile!
But I would like to hear if anyone has sold a bass and lived to regret it.
