    OP, I'd also like a better idea of what you're going for, in terms of suggestions/replies.

    Still not sure what OP is looking for... Here's a Ritter Jupiter 6.

    I think my F Bass BN6 in the Blue No-Pore Filler finish has character:

    If I get another F Bass, it will be a VF6 similar to this one:

    Whatever Gene Simmons used seemed to help make him very attractive.

    A 4001/4003 to me is a very charismatic bass to me.

    They just have a bright look about them. undeniable that they are visually quite powerful compared to a P-bass or Jazz.

    And, although the OP was concerning bass guitars, nothing says class like a classic upright bass. Especially classy when Stanley Clarke is playing it.

    A Bass is essentially 95% wood (with a few exceptions). I always thought the 'Charisma' came from whoever is driving it.
