Early 1970's WEM Sapphire bass, the only one I've ever seen with two volume and one tone control plus p/u selecter
1990's Fender Squire Affinity. I bought it for the pillar box red colour, and it actually sounds really good...Fenders just don't feel right for me tho'.

1976 Gibson Thunderbird
Bicentennial. Used from '85 thru 2000 with UFO, The Damned reunion runs, Wicked Gravity and Eddie & the Hot Rods
2020 Hagstom H8-2 8 string bass with Push-pull coil splitting from humbucking to single coil. Replaced my 8 string Ric copy which died a painful neck death.
1985 Fender Performer, very rare. This was Fender's attempt at a new "modern" bass, produced in limited runs for 2 years only. It didn't take off and yeah, it's wierd, with 3 way p/u selector and incredibly slim neck.
