A mint 1975 Sunburst. I wanted the latest one possible for my collection.

Holy moly, that’s the most beautiful Bass VI I have ever seen!

Yep, for all the pre-cbs and custom colour beauties etc ..there is just something for me in the sound of the 74/75 ones, plus I love the super slim necks. My No1 go to is the ‘74 Black one I have..I rarely record with any of the others.

My favs for playing/recording are the second gen ‘62-‘66 with the larger neck shape and veneer board. All these necks seem to be made from mid ‘62 - mid ‘63. If I had my druthers I’d also take the mustang-style bridge like on my ‘65...

Those folks have had some absolutely amazing guitars and basses throughout the years...

Yeah, just 3 guitars but there's a hell of a lot going on there.
You think you can't, you wish you could, I know you can, I wish you would. Slip inside this house as you pass by.

for some reason if I have more than 4-5 guitars at one time I start to freak out, like it’s too much. I always play everything I own (at least record with it) so I think that’s part of it - I never use more than 4-5 guitars at a time.

Now, though, the BMM VI and Gold JM will be permanent so I’ll have room for a few more :)

I am exactly like you...I hit 7 guitars for the first time ever in my life about a month ago, and almost had a freak-out...I am now down to 6, and hoping to be down to 5 in the next few weeks.

It's weird! :D
