Fantasy signature models

  1. OK folks,

    What would you like to be released that doesn't exist already - remember this is blue sky wish list subject matter !

    Judging by the popularity of both the Geddy Lee Fender Jazz bass out there on this forum and Lakland basses I'd love to see a Skyline Geddy Lee - especially a 5-string ! - I see Sadowsky Metro have their 4/5-string versions available now - yum ! - tho' they don't call them "GL" versions off course !

    Hmm - I wonder if Lakland or Sadowsky have ever approached Ged with one of their "J" basses ?

    I'm a big Percy Jones fan and would faint if Wal released a "Skyline" (if you see what I mean) 5-string fretless "PJ" bass (hint, hint guys) or a tulip wood Mick Karn fretless 5-string.

    A Lakland "Pino Palladino" 55-02 (with or without the neck p/u) would be kinda cool would it not ?

    Finally, Lakland Bob Glaub 5-string would go down very well too......

    Did you know that Percy Jones and Pino Palladino both hail from Cardiff in Wales ? - that's in the UK - must be something in the water......

    What would be on your wish list?

    The Jamerson Bass would be sweet. Complete with high action and some seriously funked up strings.

    A Jimmy Miller signature Fender Jazz Bass that has a Kahler whammy, 2 tone sunburst nitro finish, alder body, maple/rosewood neck, old style tuners, and weighs 4 lbs. I don't think that's asking too much, do you?
