    If you had to decide on one bass that you own and one bass only what would it be???? For me this was hard i never thought i would bail on my jazz but a "Precision"

    While I rotate all my basses at home.... my Precision is the one I play out.

    One bass of the ones I own, or one bass period? Of the ones I own it would be the BB75, if any bass I'd need to play a few more Foderas and Alembics to decide :)

    Out of my current basses, probably my Hofner CT. Out of any bass, a Ric 4003 with Chromes would suffice.

    Alder / rosewood Sadowsky with single coil pickups.

    I have others but they are all in the "play it once a year or sell it" closet.

    I have a MM Stingray 5HH and a P-Bass.......If I had to choose only 1, I would route a J pup in the bridge of my P-Bass for more tonal options!

    I'm a slave to nostalgia, so I'd keep my Squier P-Bass Special with the satin pewter finish and matching headstock (aka "My Sexy Beast"). It's the one that jumped out, grabbed me by the eyeballs and whispered "buy-me-play-me-learn-me" over and over into my ears.

    That being said, it would be different if I was depended upon to perform live. Nostalgia is great and all, but if results are crucial, I'd have to stick with my Fender Aerodyne (especially with the Drop-D tuner installed!). Either way, I love me those P/J hybrids!

    From the ones I own the 1965 Guild Jetstar bass because I would never find another one again. If any bass then a Precision

    My Fender P-bass…. yeah right! No P-bass here and proud of it! I would have to keep my Warwick Thumb NT6.

    Of my current basses, either my P bass or my Charvel P/J. That's a tough call.

    But I have my eye on a Warwick that might knock them both off the top.
