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.

What If?

    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.
