    What do you think is the best looking bass?
     
  2. I think MTD's are beautiful. Very striking, yet not extravagant. (Alembics look great too.. but I find some of them too gaudy for me).

    I also really like how Roscoe's and most Warwicks look.

    As far as beauty in simplicity, there's just something about the Jazz and the Stingray.

    There are so many, I have no idea where to begin.
    These would have to be my faves:
    1. Warwicks (except the Dolphin--just don't like them)
    2. Conklins (checked out JT's website--WOW!!)
    3. Spectors
    4. Dingwall Voodoo
    5. Peavey Cirrus (hey, I got one, so......)

    There are sooooo many beautiful basses out there, it is hard to even come close to mentioning all of them that make me drool.
