WHAT BASS WOULD YOU USE???
So... the band of your dreams comes to town and (OMG! Dream-come-true!), the bass player comes down with some incapacitating illness and YOU get called, (since you're one of the most well-known bassists in the area), to take his/her place for the concert they have to perform! You know ALL the material, they have ALL the back line! All you need to do is pick the bass you want to use!
WHAT BASS WOULD BE YOUR CHOICE FOR THIS CONCERT?
(... and "why" is just an option . . .) ;)

For 99% of bands Fender Am. std. J or P hands down
|5StringBlues ||02-05-2013 01:27 AM |
I'd play a Rick onstage for the first time ever.
(Sorry you're feeling ill Mr.Squire........)

I'd choose the Purpleheart and Maple j/j I'm going to build this year.

For Mass of the Fermenting Dregs, I'd bring my parts Jazz. it's not far from the current bass player's bass, the only real difference is the paulownia body and the kahler tremolo

My own bass
|Diesel Kilgore ||02-05-2013 05:44 AM |
Danelectro. An endless supply.
|bassdude51 ||02-05-2013 05:53 AM |
I'd use the same kind of bass or a similar bass that the original bassist of the band uses.
Otherwise, either a P or a J or a 'Ray.

My P/J 5 reggie clone- what else?

Well..since it's my dream,I'd use Les's 'Rainbow' bass ;)
In a more realistic scenario,I'd be filling in for Dan Maines from Clutch,and I'd happily rock the snot out of anything with four strings and a pickup!

My own bass I would not want to screw up for this type of gig .... I will not venture to unfamiliar water with this type of gig
|ronlitz ||02-05-2013 06:17 AM |
Get a fEarful.

You know, just for the hell of it, I'm tempted to say that if something that improbable were to happen, I'd borrow a tuba with a clip-on mic and run that through their rig.
I've never even played a tuba. But I feel it would make the occasion even more memorable.
|Bassbubble11 ||02-05-2013 06:21 AM |
I would use one of the basses I use for any other gig.
|jasper383 ||02-05-2013 06:22 AM |
|AuntieBeeb ||02-05-2013 06:29 AM |
OR...I might see if I can get a sample of Barry White singing "Ohhh, Baby" and use a synthesiser to map it over the range of a typical 4-string bass guitar. Connect it to a keyboard and play that.
|NickyBass ||02-05-2013 06:29 AM |
I would ask the BL which bass I should play, and play that one. :)
|seang15 ||02-05-2013 06:41 AM |
Is it a metal band? If so, I'd search TB for "best Bass for metal."
Otherwise, I would grab my trusted ATK300 and as backup, ATK305. (Funny, I believe these basses to be the best for metal, too!)
I would also bring Ol' Blue, my home built J-type 4-string complete with Audere installed. I mean, we are pro's here we're going to have less than two or more basses??

probably Valenti #43, or my Zon Sonus 5
