    well, im liking this poll feature and i thought this could be kind of the poll of all polls. or i may get no replies. remember i can only have 10 options so you can understand if i miss a few. rmemeber this is based on what you think is the best in your price range.

    Interesting idea - but try it based on price range - eg...
    under $700 / $1500 / 2500+

    that make it more logical - -

    hell, let me give it a try on high-end basses...

    ok i guess if you want to make it fair, the voter should vote in his or her price range.

    ah, it appears I have to be a moderator to do this.

    fine.

    I suggest a poll of the following builders:

    Sadowsky
    Citron
    Fodera
    F Bass
    Ken Smith
    MTD
    Zon
    Ken Lawrence
    Lakland

    actually i would put GL differently if i could edit the poll iwht more than 10 items
     
  12. i know that G&L and fender are both by leo fender, but i always see them as totally different, the bodies are nothing alike.

    If you're going to put Fender & G&L together, why wasen't Music Man added? Make it a 3 for 1 deal. Leo Fender founded all three of those companies. :) Why are all of my HTML codes showing & not the Link & Pictures? I feel like I'm naked. LOL
