    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.

    No JACO/JAMERSON. Try something else. Everybody would want those basses.:)
