    Aside from the classic Ampeg Scroll AEB-1 basses, I like the one that I attached.

    i like the look of a 35+ year old fender with out a refinsh. No fancy crap, its just a bass.

    Too many to be "best lookin" But this chambered fretless by Basslabs catches my interest -


    They were just in the USA for the first time at the just-ended NAMM show in the SWR booth.

    A stock pre-CBS Precision or Jazz, in sunburst with it's original nitrocellulose finish still looks beautiful, too.

    This one really "tickles my fancy," if you will ;)

    Not sure what brand, but it's equipped with a neck-thru graphit neck... pretty cool, huh? :)

    Best looking bass?

    I am lucky enough to own it, at least IMHO.:)

    A custom carved out precision bass style instrument that was converted to a 5-string fretless with Alembic pickups. A date underneath the neck heel indicates that it was built in 1974 but I think the neck is from a late 60's Fender P or J-bass.
