A well-rounded warrior should be able to make music.

What are your chosen weapons?

My favorite are these three:

My Alembic electric bass:

My Clevinger 5-string electric upright. This bass can level a building:


And my no-name German upright, with insane tone. I have this rigged with tape-wrapped strings, and only play it pizzicato for jazz, R&B, early instrumental rock, and blues. If I had to pick one instrument, this would be it.

I have a few guitars, but these are my favorites: an old Epiphone jumbo 12 string and a flame top quilted maple Fender Showmaster.

I have had the 12 string since my sophmore year of college and if I could only keep one, that would be the one!

The baby grand is my wife's, the dots are on the keys because the kids have started learning too.:biggrin:

This sits within arms reach of me most of the time. I've had if for 20 years now and it's the one I would chose if I was forced to only have one.

Some of us really shouldn't try.

Mine is on somewhat permanent loan to a band I was in, but this is my choice, or perhaps trade it in for the newest of the series:

Nice OP, a fellow bass player! :finger: :notworthy: :goofy: I have been playing for around 18 years myself, and through the years had assembled a pretty choice collection.

I am down to one now however, a workhorse Fender P (American, of course) with upgraded pickups.

Play a fair amount of acoustic guitar, a very smooth and sweet Guild.
