    What basses do you guys completely trust in terms of toughness? Like, you feel like you could throw it down a staircase and pick it up and play it?

    For me, nothing could beat a P for hardyness, but EBMM is definately up there, too.

    Opinions? :bassist:
  2. fender, they have made their proofs. Man 50's basses and guitar that haven't been abused are still great instrument without much problem except maybe some electrical issues (which is kinda normal for something that have been exposed to humidity for over 50 years). My warwick also seem pretty tough.

    Let's not forget the Peavey T-40's. Of course, you might cause some serious damage to the stairs... ;)
