I recognize some "baixos" I had when I was between 18 and 25 old:
Rickenbacker 4001, Musicman, Fender precision, Gibson SG, Aria pro II, Steinberger, BC Rich and... Alembic. Anyway, at these old times, I had to sell one bass to buy another one...so I have kept none from these years ...

Thanks Abidu you just confirmed that I really don't have enough basses.
My favourite in that lineup is the short scale series I bass.
You have a great collection.How do you decide which bass to play on any particular gig?
Which is your go to bass for all occasions?

What a fabulous collection, I've owned some of these over the years . . . .
-Yamaha BB2000, a bass Fender has yet to duplicate despite the fact of it's more than obvious influences. Remind me to tell you HOW the 2000 evolved into the 3000.
-If you've obviously rounded up what I call the great 80's MTV basses (Ibanez Musicican, Aria SB, Yamaha BB) you need to finish the 'quintet', you must get a TUNE Bass Mainiac and a Daion Mark XX.
-The two first basses I ever bought brand new, the Gibson RD (a bass so big and heavy and long that a long scale Series bass is almost a relief) and the Ripper, both afflicted with the poorest excuse for a bass bridge known to man, except for Rickenbackers.
-That green Jazz . . . . they just look SO much better with matching headstocks, paint-wise.
A wonderful collection, good on ya ! !

great collection. Love the RDs. My first foray into homemade instruments was a fretless RD copy that I still play occasionally.

Welcome to the forum, Abidu!!!
Nice to see real country as far south as Sao Paulo!!!
As a pedal steel player, I'd say there's only one thing your band's missing....
A sweet collection of basses for sure! In particular, I like all the Alembics (of course), as well as all of your EB Gibsons.

WOW What a great collection!!!
I am sorry but you have too many - you must give one of them away to rebalance nature
Maybe send one to Australia ;)
It must have taken a lot of time and dedication to end up with that awesome bunch of basses.

Yep good idea Slawie, one to Oz and the two short scales to the UK that should make amends with mother nature.
This may help you understand why the collection has grown to such an awesome size.
