    Wow, wide ranging topic! Cool idea.

    I guess I'd go with a Shell Pink stack-knob Jazz bass.

    Cause I find the shell pink to be beautiful, I love the stack knob design because of the flexibility, and I personally feel like it's probably Leo Fender's best work. Man, do I look up to that dude.

    I know nothing about vintage basses but I think it'd be fun to have a 1964 Rick or Jazz...just because that's the year I was born

    A Brooklyn-era Spector would be sweet.

    Geddy Lee's Steinberger bass from the Grace Under Pressure era. I really liked his live sound with that bass and it reminds me of a great time in my life. :)

    early 60s Fender Precision with the one-piece maple neck. I have no idea how "collectible" those are, but it fits a P Bass-sized hole in my personal collection.

    I've got the '64 Jazz, so it would be kinda cool to find a sweet '62 Precision to go with it.

    Rickenbacker 4001CS, because Chris has been my hero forever. Or a 4004LK, because it's gorgeous. Or an Earthwood.

    My 62 jazz but minus the shite refinish those bushmen did to it. It's getting A PROPER SB refin right now. Should be done by this weekend. Here's the neck ready. Luthier saved the front face of the head, all factory pencil marks including the date, 10/62 in pencil, and the original paint in the pocket.

    Yeah, I'd have to go with Jaco's Bass of Doom. There are other basses I'd rather have for playing purposes, but just for having . . . that would be the one.

    Beat me to it with Jamerson's Funk Machine & Jaco's Bass of Doom!

    Then I'd add John Wetton's P-Bass and John Paul Jones' Jazz Bass.

    I couldn't limit myself to just one, either!
