    This one. If it came up on the market, I am pretty confident I would buy it almost regardless of price. I am not sure if Jared Morante still owns it or not, but it is is the shizzle.

    I have always liked Violin Shaped basses. But, I think I like Fender P-Bass for my more practical choice.

    Hi Xanython, I've played a Vampyre.... it was tuned F#, B, E, A. And for that tuning I have always thought they should be maybe a 35+ scale, but it's 34. It's made well, and that low string is sooooo huge as to be a completely different experience. it's definitely weird hitting those low notes, and it seems to be a bass made for metal, or at least that was my impression (I guess not necessarily though... depends how you play it) I wasn't sold on it in the end, as I did find it a little bit floppy on the f#, but what do you expect?

    Will Lee played a Sadowsky(sp) Jazz for a while that was Aqua Blue wood grain with a White pick guard. I always thought that was a beautiful instrument.
     
  8. The ACG that is in my head! 5 string, Recurve single-cut. Oh goodness...

    Call me boring but the Rickenbacker 4001/4003 is still my favorite looking bass.

    It's a toss up between Lemmy's signature Ric and this... my god, how I want one of these...

    Also, Major Metal's green violin bass looks freaking AWESOME.

    For me it would be an Alpine White Jazz with Perloid pg, birdseye maple neck with perloid blocks and binding, chrome hardware.

    I've always been a huge fan of Zons, lookswise. They've always reminded me of Spectors, but with something "modern" lurking beneath the surface. Only way I can describe it.
