What basses have you owned that you don't have any more?

The only one I don't still have was stolen. My first Q6 from NAMM 1985:



Bastages!
I went to court and watched them convict the guy, but I never saw my bass again...

Ouch. Is the Q6 you have the same other than the finish and emotional stock you had in it?

Me, I've never gotten rid of any basses, although I wish that I never would've decided to refinish my Frankencision.

Yes, but the first one played better as it was made to show the world, rather than a replacement for a guy no one had ever heard of... IMHO...

MIK Squier II P-bass - Stolen by a crackhead who will suffer if I ever see him again.
Yamaha BBN404 Fretless - Nice bass, but I never played it.
Peavey Grind NTB 6 - I really liked that bass, I'm not sure why I sold it.
Squier P-bass Deluxe(P body, Jazz neck, P/J pups) - I gave it to a thirteen year old who wanted to learn how to play bass after I slapped a MIM Jazz neck on it so it would look cooler. The ungrateful bastard never even thanked me.
