    Lets say you got a free bass that was made out of the best tasting pie in the world. This is the only one of these pies in extistence, and no other pie will ever be as good as this one. But, it's also the best bass in teh world, and after playing with it you won't be able to eat it or play it. Also, nibbling ruins the tone. So you can only eat the pie or play it.. Which would you do, eat it or play it?

    I would eat the damned pie.

    But first, I would send a sample to a science lab to determine all the ingredients, amount of ingredients, and at what tempature and lenth the pie was cooked.

    Best bass in the world? Ha. Jaco only needed a beat-to-hell-jazz.

    Gobble, gobble, gobble. I've got nine more, and they all sound better than that POS anyway.

    I would eat it. If it actually was the best bass in the world, then once you ate it the "second best bass in the world" would become the "best bass in the world". By purchasing the second best bass in the world, you could get to enjoy eating the best pie in the world and after you have finished, you could own / play the best bass in the world.

    But you will never know what the first one played like or tasted like, it may be totally different.

    No scientific analysis allowed.. And no "Jaco only needed..." quotes either. What do you think this is, activebass?

    Does it really matter, it no longer exists, and you still have the capacity to have the worlds best bass in your possession?

    If you play it, you can play it forever? Or just once?
