    Doh'! - and I was already to suggest the "loafers and a vest" bass for you! :rolleyes:

    Look for a used BC Rich bass....AFAIK they are the most "not gay" basses out there.

    So I'm assuming the new "Queer Eye" signature model Jazz Bass would be out?

    Get it, out? HA! I kill me. Unfortunately, very few others, but at lease I see the humor in me. ;)

    Oh, and the usage of "gay" to describe a negative? Not cool, insulting, and so very 1995. Can't we come up with something new? How about "guitarist"? "That shirt is so very guitarist"

    In theory, wouldn't a gay bass look better? Seeings as how many gay people are often well dressed(at least in the media), shouldn't the same thing apply to those basses?

    bvolt, I came in here to edit your post, but I see the local rabble already did a good job of beating you up for your use of the word "gay" in this context. Tain't cool to use gay like that.

    Why don't you try again, and leave the slurs out of it?
