    Like a 1951 P bass, 1960 Jazz, 1976 Stingray...
    I would 100% go for a 1960 Jazz bass with stack knobs.

  5. 60 Jazz. I love the P sound, but I like the split pickup and body better than the initial offering.

    Now, if you're talking about for collecting, that's completely different. My vote is for which I'd want to own and play.

    The ‘60 Jazz would be high on my list. But the ‘79 Ibanez Musician would be right up there, too.

    I had a '76 Stingray until the late 1990's. Had the white pickguard and radio knobs. I'd choose that.
