    The Joe Osborne sig from Lakland. The setup and playability of those basses are the best, bar none!
     
  3. Geddy Lee Jazz bass.

    Consistant great J bass.

    My vote is for the Fender RB5(4), because its actually special in its pickup design and whatnots instead of just a special wood combo.

    What, no Mark Hoppus?

    Marcus Miller Jazz, Geddy Lee Jazz, Rosce Beck V, Lakland Joe Osbourne. They're all great in their own ways.

    That bass (which I happen to own also) has Bill lawrence pups in it. Bill L.'s pups are now featured in the Victor Bailey and other dlx Fender jazz basses in place of the noiseless pups!

    Gibson Les Paul Signature. Each and every time I plug it in I'm amazed at the rich, deep, warm and lush tones that it emits.

    Best signature bass? Why that would be the Lakland Joe Osborn! I happen to know that there's a beautiful Skyline version for sale on TB as we speak! :D
