  1. just for kicks

    not that i would do that to a good bass

    but what would be the best bass to hit someone with

    you know like that idiot who asks you to play a stupid song:meh:
     
  2. I'd go with a BC Rich Warlock or something like that, it's sure to hurt ;)

    Please let's not promote useless violence for no apparent reason. There's enough senseless violence in the world.

    I'll leave this thread open, but I'll keep a close eye on it.

    Where's that bass that was up here a while back? It's the one that was carved to look like a dragon and had a flamethrower in the neck. It looked pretty massive IIRC. Sure to put a dent in someone. I'll look around for pics and edit when I find them.

    I've been jabbed by a stray Warlock before. Those things hurt.
     
  9. Kramer aluminum pitchfork headstock

    Or maybe any boat paddle type bass cause you could swing it fast

    Full disclosure, I'm a certified Fender technician working in a music store that carries Fender, Yamaha, and Ibanez products among others.
    I once used my Steinberger as a blunt force trauma ogject to get out the door when a bar brawl broke out during a gig in Az.
    Those graphite necks jab people out of the way pretty good, and once all was said and done, and statements taken by the cops, no one was seriously injured. The bass was still in tune, too :D
     
  11. The hit itself is just half of it.

    If You want to get away too You'd better usa a Hohner B2 or something, that You can easily hide afterwards.

    The hiding part also goes for an Ashbory bass, but I seriously doubt You can kill a fly with it. Bad choice.

    I don't agree. Those rubber strings look like they could leave a major welt.

    I'm sure you could throw it at someone easily.......as a diversionary tactic.

    Warwick corvette standard or thumb, that bubigna is one hell of a dense wood, plus the body size makes it pretty manuverable.
     
  14. There was a thread awhile back entitled, 'Best bass for whacking someone in the head'. Search, grasshopper.
     
  15. Ashbory = crossbow

    Peace,

    hofner- just for the splinter effect. nasty
    dan armstrong- that 3/4 inch plexiglass isnt going to break easy and would make a nice thwack sound as it made contact.

    i keep a squire bass for such an occasion, if you hit someone with a warwick or other heavey bass you'd probaly kill them.

  20. Probably a doubleneck bass made out of Bubinga and Ash with BadAss bridges on it. Thats be like getting hit by a football player for sure...
