While some of you might think this is about me not being able to let go of this community , it’s really about saying good-bye to basses…
There is really nothing wrong with some of my basses other than the fact that I almost never play them (anymore). I guess I don’t play them because they don’t give me anything extra compared to my main basses. Still, it’s damn hard to make the decision to sell, mainly because I am so… sentimental. But, I am neither a collector nor are these basses much of an investment.
Also, I don’t necessarily need the money, but it could open for the possibility to perhaps get another one of my bucket list basses.
- the easiest to part with is my Harley-Benton 6-string (but I probably won’t get much for it)
- it’s a shame for the AiO PB4, but I am just not a P-bass guy… can’t seem to get into it (and my Mayones should cover that)
- the Sandberg TM4 Nighthawk+: such a great bass, but other than being more slap-able than others, not giving me much I don’t have already (that M-style pickup is not really a hard argument; and also, I don’t slap)
- the Yamaha TRB5Pii - my only “vintage” bass (2009); outstanding Japanese craftsmanship, but I just don’t play it anymore. Somehow, it is just too… “nice/well-behaved”; but, then, it is a bit of a “rare” bass…
Sorry for the long write… I guess I just needed to get it off my chest. Thanks for reading, and I certainly appreciate hearing your thoughts
