Time to thin the herd

I've got too many basses.

 

Should I get rid of the Fender Deluxe American Jazz Fretless 4?

Since I got the StingRay 5 Fretless, I don't need the Fender anymore.

 

Or a Reverend Rumblefish 5?

I've got 4 of these.

 

Or both?

 

Or neither?

 

I think $1,000 US Dollars each is fair.

 

No case for either one.

 

I need an excuse for a trip to Europe or South America or Shanghai.

 

What should I do?

Sweet Baby Jeebus...


Keep the best, and sell the rest. Get those bad boys back in circulation, fer f*ck's sake...


:D

 

I'm keeping the Penguin (Black and White) and Blue (Black pickguard).

 

The great things about the Reverends are:

 

1. The Tone. Great sustain.

 

2. Easy playing necks.

 

3. Really hot pickups (passive with active hotness).

 

4. Lightweight. You can play all night with very little fatigue.

 

5. They stay in tune for a very, very long time.

 

6. They are really unique and sexy basses.

 

7. Investment value. They don't make them anymore.

 

(In no particular order)

Write down all of your basses on a piece of paper. Write down when you play them; the date and how long. This is enlightening. I thought I "needed" all my basses until I did this.

 

After a month or two, you will see which ones can be sold. The basses that get played the least, you should sell. Just about anyone can get down to two or three basses this way.

 

Based on your post, it looks like you could sell the Fender and 2 of the Reverends, and not miss them at all.

I did this last August or so. Good luck to ya man. It hurts, trust me.
:(

 

Yeah, it sometimes sucks to get rid of basses you've owned a long time. But by the same token, if they're just laying around and not getting much playing time anymore, it's better to get them into the hands of someone who WILL play them regularly. Plus, you get some extra cash/store credit in the process, which doesn't suck. ;)

TBH I really only miss my chechen-fretboard/chechen-top+alder body Q5. Best sounding Moddy ever and I've played a damn lot of 'em...
