I don't think this has been done before, at least not recently and I know its completely subjective, but lets hear what manufacturers body styles people like and don't like and (preferably) the reasons for it. Please be mature to avoid this becoming a mud slinging match ... but art is a subjective topic! For me, I like: JP & Benavente singlecuts - they are probably the two most graceful looking single cut instruments I have ever seen. MTD Basses - These took a while to grow on me but the body shape is fantastic. They look so balanced! Fender Jazz Bodies - whether regular or dinky I think they look great, with or without a pickguard. I dislike: Modulus & Pbasses - I can't bring myself to like bodies that are not at least slightly offset! Fodera bodies - with the exception of the Emperor, I have not seen a single Fodera body style that calls to me - the woods and craftsmanship are amazing, but they just dont do it for me. Conklin basses - The upper horn makes it look a little to 80's metal for my liking. I would like to see the upper horn on JT's doubleneck (which looks great) become an option as I think the sidewinder shape is a little unflattering. I think overall I like offset bodies that look "balanced" and have a classic shape to them - ie one that will not date. I have also never found the countoured back to be particuarly usefull on basses - even though I have a beer gut! What are peoples thoughts?
