Only one bass - its time again for this

I know we did this a while ago, but couldn’t find it to resurrect it so starting another.

This time - play by the rules…

  1. You can only keep 1 bass, you MUST choose only one
    • none of this wishy washy ‘this one but then if x or y then that one’
    • seriously, choose, only 1
  2. It has to be a bass you already own
  3. Choose wisely

As i was looking at my rack this morning, the clear clear winner is the Rickenbacker.
Might not be as flexible of a tone, but it’s the one I would keep, period.

I’m actually selling the one you probably thought I would keep :slight_smile:
Somewhat wistfully, but I’m just not playing it much since I got the SBV.

Hmm. I feel like I’m stepping into a trap, here. :slight_smile:

That said, were I forced to only keep one bass and could keep no others, It would be my Kiesel Osiris:

…and then I’d go on a mad quest to recover the B4 I had to get rid of for this insane thread. :smiley:

I love the way my fretless Jazz bass sounds with TI Jazz Flats and Fender Noiseless pickups.

I absolutely love your PRS. If ever I get another bass, a PRS is high atop the list.
