Interested in Lipkins, Reid Hudson Jean Grunberger, Fuchs bows; would love a great Vigneron or Sartory. I wish Benoit Rolland or Stephane Thomachot made bass bows.
There are many beautiful Contrabasses I have drooled over - Rocca, Busan, Bergonzi, Maggini.
Thinking about some day commissioning Daniel Hachez to make a bass.
As for bass guitar,
I'd love a Carl Thompson fretless, Anthony Jackson or Matt Garrison's Fodera or a Six string fretted Ken Smith.
