Check out this pic of John Entwistle. I find the Alembic short scale with the Bigsby (?) (lower right) very interesting.

But in no way complete as he has sold basses permanently over the years.
As for the Bigsby one, this is currently owned by one of the forum members....(not me..)

In no way complete, indeed; about 30-40 years ago, Guitar Player did a story on his collection. At that time he had a warehouse (in the proverbial "undisclosed location") filled with instruments - things like everything Fender made in '6?, in Candy Apple Red, then again in Sunburst......He was one of the great collectors. This pic's probably just some of what he kept at home to play.
