    The only one I would love to see would be the entire line of Washburns made in the late 70's and very early 80's! The Wing series - Vulture, Vulture II
     
  4. Are you referring to the original Telecaster basses? They were what the 51 reissue is now. Great bass.

    Nope, he's talking the ones that were made for export without the contours in the early '60's. Entwhistle got his mitts on a few of them and swore by them.

    I'd like to see a Gibson EB-2 and an American Standard Fretless Precision come back.

    Who? Me?

    Perhaps many of us feel that Gibson's best basses are no longer in production, and what is in production really isn't that great. My feelings anyway. They had some awesome basses over the years, what's out there now is really just sort of average.

    An updated Ovation Magnum would be cool
     
  9. Oh Hell Yeah! Though I would be worried that they would do a BXP version and ruin the magic of that bass.

    Wal? Wals have been temporarily out of production and should be coming back in the near future. Unless you are talking about re-issuing some the older Wal "Pro" bass models.

    Linc Luthier basses

    Any p bass or jazz with the early 70's one piece maple necks...using top quality hard maple, not the cheapo twisting stock most MIM's get.

    The Ibanez Musician neck-thru fretless, better yet reissue it as a 5-string

    i second that emotion. :cool:
     
  17. A reissue of the Ibanez Musician would be interesting, MIJ of course. T-40 that isn't near as heavy would be sweet, MIA.

    More Reverends would be nice, too.
     
  19. Gibson EB-1 with the original "Open" style headstock and a single Dark Star pickup in the original position.

    A more affordable AV version of the 64 Jazz bass (three knob configuration), with a good assortment of 60s Fender custom colors like firemist gold and sea foam green).
