    You Ever Ask Yourself.....

    How many Music Man basses have I had?

    I know this is not all of them, but it's in the ballpark. Scary, ain't it?

    Obviously, you need more Bongos.

    17... Only because I have kept track of them in my signature. Pretty sure i would have forgotten some of these if i hadn't. At least 2 of the ones in Jack's pictures have passed through my hands as well. JOSH

    I highly recommend the Cutlass. Point and shoot simplicity. Sits deadly in a live mix.

    I've owned 12 different Music Man basses, but currently own none and am thinking of number 13...

    I had to go way back in the memory banks - could count 27 that I distinctly remember, but there were periods where I was trading things that hadn't actually arrived yet, so it may have been higher.

    14 Stingrays (7 4's and 7 5's, 1 fiver was a classic series)
    6 Bongos (4 4's and 2 4's)
    5 Sterlings (4 4's and 1 5)
    1 Sabre Classic
    1 Reflex (probably my favorite of the bunch and the one I regret selling the most)

    Current count is a very disappointing 1 (although that 1 is anything but disappointing) - if I can sell a couple basses that that are doing little more than holding down my multi guitar stand, I will add another, maybe 2.

    Edit - missed two Stingray 4's first time around - make that 29 total. Will have to make that a round 30 this year!

    I currently own EBMM 7 basses but since 2010 I have purchased 6 EBMM Guitars and I think 14 Basses. And more will be acquired again this year and next year.
