    If you want the "best sound of electric bass" in the world, I would refer you to the album Led Zeppelin II. If you want to know which sounds better between a Sadowsky and a Fodera, there is no comparison. These two companies try to achieve two completely different sounds and are geared to two very differnt styles of players with different mind-sets. Fodera basses are positioned more towards modern, slap, and jazz players. They are a unique invention all to themselves in sound, design, and appearance. Most Sadowsky players are Fender Jazz Bass freaks who are looking for improvements upon a great, classic instrument and design. You'll find a lot of rock and roll, pop, blues, country, and funk players going for Roger's basses.

    English is not your first tounge is it? Well, those tones are not "The best in the world" they are, however, very good. victor wooten does indeed play a fodera, but mayne bassists might prefer the tone of another, their is no one "Bass tone that beats all the rest" there is only the tone that YOU think is the best in the world, and THAT is what you should try to find.

    Okay, for bass content. . Tung basses are nice, and sometimes I use tung oil to finish my basses.

    i beg to differ. the best sound of electric bass in the world is moving pictures. :)

    good answer to the original question. however, i'd say that conkin makes the best bass in the world. :D after all, i better say that, considering how much money i have invested in conklins.

    Is the 4001/3 Rickenbacker mostly a rock bass or can it be used for Jazz as well?

    Or is it all about the amp settings?

    In my opinion, the best bass sound in the whole world is the sound of a fretless bass (even though I don't play fretless).

    I just love that sound and regret selling mine. :(

    He certainly does. I was watching Lyle Lovett on Austin City Limits and everyone was playing rather traditional, toned-down instruments.....but not Lee. Crazy blue modern damned Dingwall.

    Which sounded GREAT.
  17. No, if you use a Rick for jazz the world will implode. :bag:

    But seriously, I don't see why not it can't be used for jazz (I've never played one though. You can use any bass for any genre.. but whether you think it sounds good or not is totally up to you.
