    Any "Tuxedo" Bass.

    Specifically, a bass with the same color combo and neck of a Geddy Lee. black body + white pickguard + black blocked and bound maple neck = Class. Basically, as long as the bass is some form of black and white, it's super classy.

    Fretlesses look classier than fretted.

    Something without too much grain.

    Your rig is a thing of beauty, Munjibunga.

    Agreed! With that being said, add into the equation anything Ritter.

    Am I the only person who thinks most boutique basses AREN'T classy? :bag: Not to rag on those who play them, but they seem more like a symbol of status, more than anything. At least in my twisted mind. :help:



    Give me a simple P-bass; nothing classier.

  19. I;m a simple man, a classic Fender Jazz, really in any colour wether it be black, red, blue, green. I think they are really classy. But the classiest is the Olympic white or 3-tone sunburst with tort guard.
