    So imagine you're playing bass, then $#!+ are those zombies?

    You're facing a whole horde what's your ideal bass to smash these zombies?

    Would you use your prized bass?

    I think I would use like a BC rich warlock purely for its shape. It's heavy but the end is V shaped so if I need to pin down a zombie or push them back that V will trap them or the points can really do a number. Personally not a bc rich fan no disrespect but I will become their biggest fan in a zombie apocalypse.

    Yes I would use my prized bass it's an apocalypse and I will be looting guitar center.....once I reach there it's a musicians battle.

    My epiphone les Paul's. Not a real elegant weapon but a pretty effective war hammer.

    Yes that's the right thing to do but say your out of ammo you drop your guns and your cornered next to a bass. You have no choice what's the bass you will use to bludgeon these zombies....we can't make it that easy but I see you're prepared for an apocalypse.

    +1 for fender they're are tough as hell that was one of the contenders for me.

    I'd use my Hoppus P. 1 knob, 1 pick up...... It's the ideal warclub.

    That's bad cause i like semi-hollows. They would shatter in an instant and wouldnt do much damage.


    I'd probably use any bass i hate the looks of i can find. Since i hate the look of 95% of basses, that would be easy. Bring me all your wood grain color wildly asymetrical custom made please....

    Many years ago, I walked into my house along with a girl I was dating. Suddenly we heard a crashing noise from the bedroom...huh?? at the time I lived alone with no pets. Intruder? No idea, and since my guns were stashed in the bedroom, I grabbed the nearest "weapon" handy--my P-bass.

    With the girl's fingers digging deep into my arm, and me clutching the bass by the neck like a baseball bat, we carefully inched into the bedroom....and found nobody!

    I can't remember what we finally figured out it was, something fell over perhaps. But I do remember grabbing that P-bass ready to bash the heck out of somebody.

    But didn't Mythbusters determine that if you were swarmed by zombies, even a semiauto couldn't kill them off fast enough?

    Shooting Zombies woulnd't work. They're already dead! Smaking 'em with a P-Bass would work, because it would blast them into little pieces. One more thing the P-Bass is good at that nothing else can do. I don't hit my P-Bass with a hammer, because it would hurt the hammer. It is the Chuck Norris of basses.

    Massive head injury required. A T-40 ought to do the trick.

    A T-40 is the obvious answer, but I don't own one. My Tele bass has some serious weight to it though.













    ...which gives me a great idea.


    "Honey, I need to buy this bass (T-40) in case there is a zombie apocalypse".
