    I am a big fan of the bigger body style such as the Jazz, but my current fave is the Curbow Int'l Petite. Carved top, recessed knobs, and bridge. Very nice.

    Music Man Stingray 100%! I love the pickguard shape, bridge style, and the body shape. It kicks ass!
     
  8. I agree except for the chrome control plate. That's why I prefer the Sterling

    Can't think of anything with more eye-appeal than a Spector or Zon Sonus.
     
  10. THe only Zon I like is the Legacy Elite on OH BABY is it sweet.
    But on the note of the Stingrays check this one out

    I like the shape of the F-bass a lot. The new Tunes are pretty cool, too, in a Lexusy Japanese luxury car sort of way.

    With doubt, :))) I'd have to go with the body of the Hanwinckel Fusion:

    This seems kinda out of place amongst all these "high-end" basses, but i think a good sunburst fender jazz is beautiful...... Anyone agree??
