    We are blessed to live in a time when builders are making some of the best looking basses I've ever seen in my years of playing. So let's see what is the prettiest bass you have ever owned or seen. Here are a couple of mine that I've owned over the last couple years and still own. N1. CB8. s6. IMG_0655.JPG STR2.

    well, you sure have some beautiful instruments! :thumbsup:

    i just popped in to gawk...i'll stop by later when there's more to see....

    i have no great looking instruments: they're all fairly 'pedestrian' --- but they play, of course.

    ...well, it’s in the eye of the beholder, isn’t it?

  4. I absolutely loved the look of my RD Artist, but didn't like the tone or how it played... Don't have a pic, but it was a tobacco burst '79.

    That’s why the title says the prettiest bass you have owned or seen. I take it you didn’t read the title?

    All the shiny metal on Jaguar basses remind me of this:

    And that's why I collect them. Plus they sound okay, i guess.

  10. I don’t own these, but I’d say the top 2 in my list would be a Carl Thompson Fretless 6 and a Jens Ritter Jupiter 6.

    Most definitely, but a topic like this is a very pleasant and welcome change from the spate of “thinly-veiled ugly bass” threads that have been cropping up recently. :meh:

    Those Warriors and that STR are gorgeous! They play and sound as good as they look?

    Some more Warriors and Roscoes I've purchased in the last 3-4 years.
