    Very sorry to hear about your dad. As it was said, you have AMAZING collection of basses!

    tbh, at first I went through your NGD's and all of that, and now, I can say - I know, after whom, you've got SUCH awesome taste :)

    thanks dude! I am mainly a bassist. Bassist by profession, guitarist by choice. :D I definitely got my GAS from that guy!!! Might have to sell a couple of those soon, as I just don't have the space. :(

    I agree man. Modulus makes an awesome bass. That might be one that has to go soon, can't decide...

    Such a great piece of bubinga though!

    Well, his main ones would stay, but the ones he was't uber-attached too would probably go, maybe one of the carvins and the modulus.

    Wow, your father had some extreme taste in basses... I cant believe that blue spector. I can only imagine your father had pride in you to have you inherit them

    Sorry for your loss, man. I'm 25 as well and glad my parents are both alive and mostly healthy.

    On the other hand... Holy shit, these are beautiful. That spector's blue finish is heavenly :drool:

    that's how i felt the first time i tried a Spector, after faming on a Forte 5 string i thought i died and went to bass heaven, now i see why Alex Webster uses Spector in the Studio

    then i saw the price tag and my heart sank

    Real shame to hear he has passed away man, may he rest in peace.

    He obviously had very good taste, those are some exquisite basses. Keep his spirit alive through those instruments man!

    Very sorry to hear about the loss of your father. :(

    It's very cool that he passed his collection on to you. Those are some truly beautiful instruments, and I'm sure you'll treasure and appreciate them. :yesway:

    My sincerest condolences. He had impeccable taste, that Spector and those Warwicks and the neckthru Carvin are GORGEOUS.
