I saw this in a few threads and thought it was cool. Lets see your analogies
What like Rogue and Tanglewood are the Trabants and Yugos of the bass world?
Ford must equate with Fender!
Lotus = Status
Ferrari and Lamborghini = Warrior, Ken Smith
But does Yamaha = Yamaha?
PS I drive a Toyota, which probably equates to something like Tune bass?
Tune does make a sport model, the Space Bass.....and I want one.
Lotus - Fodera
Ferrari - Elrick
Lamborgini - R
MTD - Cadillac
Shack - Lincoln
Yamaha - Honda
This could go on forever
Fender & Gibson - Ford & Chevy
warwick = bmw
made in germany
and too many people have 'em
i think basses are more like women.
Some you treat with lots of respect
some you never yell at
some you always talk sweet too
some you just treat like a little B****
some you swing at and hit
some you love
ahhh..... spend money on.....cant forget that...
My new Lakland Skyline 55-02 = Dodge Viper (hot damn at moderate cost)
Me playing it = Pee Wee Herman sitting in the seat behind you at the Adult Cinema.
De Armond I would say is closer to a Porche than anything else. It's small, fast, lightweight, and very cool. Also, fairly inexpensive.
G&L = buick
Haven't priced a Porsche, huh?
Rickenbacker = Corvette
Made in USA
One of a kind, but production-built
Has a unique feel and handling
Not for everyone
You either like it or you don't
Always draws attention
Rick - don't know about that one
Ken Smith - Porsche
Fodera - Mercedes, the nicer ones AMG
Warwick - BMW
Warrior - purple Rolls Royce w/a wing and neon light kit ...
G&L - Mustangs
Stingray - Now *that* is the Corvette
Alembic - Ferrari if they had a wider selection and did custom jobs
About Ricks . . . solid but fast, fairly common, good resale value, 30+ year history, does sound like a Corvette. . .maybe a beefy Camaro/Firebird?
Alembic Epic = Porsche 914
Fenders = Volkswagens
Pedullas = Jaguars
Zons = Lamborghinis
Rickenbackers = Citroens
Rogues = Fiats
Fender = Chevrolet
Gibson = Oldsmoblle
Rickenbacker = Cadillac
Musicman = BMW
Yamaha = Toyota
Anything other basses can be compared at your own disgression.
Opinions are subject to change, and how hostile the crowd gets.

doesn't have enough sound (power) - because they put 4 string pups in my 5 string bass!!! oh well, its out of here on tuesday
Rickenbacker = Shelby Cobra
Ibanez Rickenbacker copy = fiberglass Shelby Cobra kit car on a Pinto chassis
MM Sterling = Chevrolet Impala SS
MM Stingray = Chevrolet Impala SS with those mudflaps with the chrome silhouette of a naked reclining lady
Precision = Ford 5.0 Mustang
Jazz = Lincoln Town Car
55-94 = Hemi Cuda
Cirrus 6 = BMW 750i
MIM Jazz Deluxe with Schaller/Gotoh/Barts = just like my old V8 Pinto...
You can get a 70's Porche 911 for $6000 easily. Just look in the paper. They are all over the place. I even saw an add for a 365 racer in good condition for only $8000.
MTD K5- Nissan- made overseas, and highly underated by most people.
