    If Money was no object what bass would you have?
  2. Fodera, Ritter! Alain Caron F Bass 5 or 6
    Witha lot of patience, the other high end basses are affordable!

    If I could spend any amount of money, I'd get a Fodera Vic Wooten bolt-on.

    If money were no object, I think I'd pay Benedetto to come out of retirement and build me a semi-hollow bass - one of a kind.

    Micheal dolan 6 string super laminated body, lined fretless, peizo set up on an whale bone brdige, super smooth sounding pups.

    If you ever in Santa Rosa, CA check out his shop, his laminate jigsaw puzzle basses are just incredible,

    a custom neck threw G&L 2000, cept with bubinga body woods, and wenge/purple heart neck with a wenge FB, aguilar 3 band EQ.

    I can't say... I'd have to play 'em first. BUT, ones I'd look at are MTD 535's, FBass BN5's, or a whole bunch of other cool stuff, I can't think of right this minute.

    sadowsky. 4 strings.
  9. Based on looks only, since I haven't yet played any, a Celinder, or two, would be nice. One P, one J. Both with four strings and frets.

    I want a second Fodera Yin/Yang. This time, five strings and no frets. Top woods reversed so the ebony part of the body doesn't blend into the ebony fretless board. I just got an estimate on its cost, and have a BIG empty penny jar to fill now.

    For the moment, my fretted yin/yang 4 fulfills me.

    If I were independantly wealthy I'd buy a Sadowsky New york Vintage 5 and a Fodera Monarch Deluxe 5 and the bass Jacob Marchelewski is building for Wolfehollow. See birth of a bass thread. One can dream
  14. I'd say a Custom Shop master built Fender fretless Jazz, white blonde with tort guard. The American Jazz has my favorite fretless sound, why not get one to my specs, handmade by one of the builders at Fender?

    Ken Lawrence Brase 5
    Nordstrand singlecut 5
    Another Roscoe 5

    And a jazz-based 5-string with an alder body and spalted maple top.
  16. +1

    Or a Valenti Jazz.
  17. Custom built double neck Fodera Emperor 6 fretted/6 fretless

    Money no object..... dream basses..... Hmmmm

    1.) Benavente 51 series fretless 6 with birds-eye fingerboard and one big ole humbuck in the middle

    2.) Benavente 51 series fretted 5 white/tort/maple with a pair of Dimarzio ultra jazz

    :smug: hey what do you know... That's just like the basses I got :hyper:

    I do have a LowEnd Jazz 6 in my sights too...

    the "Money No Object" part would be a chance to audition and purchase a pro level 5 string upright that feels and sounds best to me.
