    OK, here's a silly one:

    I've recently read about 'F' Basses and 'R' Basses, and there's of course the 'J' and the 'P' ;)

    There's the Atelier 'Z'.

    Is there one for each letter in the alphabet?

    :)

    Well, the "J" and the "P" basses shouldn't really count because they're Fenders, no?

    For what it's worth, Albey Balgochian calls his instruments "A" basses.

    So far we have
    A, Bee,..., F,..., J, K,..., P,..., R,..., Z.

    C'mon guys, fill in the gaps! :D

    Getting more and more far-fetched.... But OK, we have:
    A, Bee,..., D,..., F, G,..., J, K,..., P,..., R,..., Z

    Hmmmm...let me think

    JPbasses (could not miss this one ;-)),

    Darrin Huff Z an R series,

    Leduc L series, Ubass and Zbass,

    Patrice Blanc B series,

    Status Tbass

    Tune TWX TWB TBC............
     
  16. And now we all should try making a word by combining all the letters in the right order. The word we derive ought to be the magic word for becoming one with the bass...

    ...or something.:)
