1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

If you could own any famous bass...

    What would it be? Leave out the obvious Jaco/Jamerson responses. Mine would have to be Geoge Porter Jr.'s beat up old P-bass. How 'bout you folks?:bassist:

    It would be pretty cool to own the smashed remains of Paul Simonon's p-bass from the cover of London Calling.
