Probably my favorite bass, or at least is tied with two others. I don't travel with it and retired it from regular "gigging". I use this one for recording...at least until I own a P bass!
~ Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray
This bass is pretty thrashed but was my first 5 string and I got it from Derrick Blackman I started playing music again

~ Ibanez SR-800
The first bass guitar I ever owned. I saved up enough money working at the local movie theater and bought it from Guitar Center when I was about 16. I didn't really know what I was doing but I played tuba, naturally was drawn to the low end sound of a bass guitar and couldn't "jam" with a tuba
I will have this for the rest of my days I hope :)
It has really bright strings on it now and is great for popping and slapping...two things of which I still haven't learned how to really do!
~ Squire Classic Vibe 60's reissue (with LaBella flat wounds and a piece of sponge at the bridge courtesy of Phil Chen)
I bought this from Ron Sodano, a good gentleman I met through my time at Rickenbacker. He live on the east coast and shipped it to me. It's a really inexpensive Fender but I have plans to customize it as time and money allows :)
~ Classic Steinberger
~ Steinberger Spirit
