    Hey guys, I was just wondering what is your FAVE bass, Not that you personally own, but whats your fave comp/Luthier out there?

    For me... Nordstrand or Roscoe probably.
  2. Darrin Huff's instruments are very impressive. A Sadowsky J would be very nice, as I'm a Jazz man myself. But you can't deny the beauty of Huff basses. Nordstrands are also incredible, but less of my style.

    Sinny, Oztraya
    Alembic, followed by Status and Kubicki.

    Just based on appearance, without ever playing one, would be Sei.

    OLP SB-4 Spector copy. inexpensive and plays great. I'd take any bass as long as it has a good slap tone.
  7. judging by looks, a RI p-bass, artic white - where you can see the grain, maple/maple neck, and a gold alu-scratchplate or a tort.

    IMO Conklins are the most bautiful basses... Never played one though, thanks to my location! :bawl:
  10. Ric's are my fav...But Cliff Bordwell's basses always peak my intrest. He has made some beautiful basses. I just wish i could try one.

    IMO my favourite shape bass is a bit far from the norm!

    Gus guitars of England I think make the perfect shape bass ever! Even though they also make guitars I think they are the most beautiful and original shape around! :D

    The G3 Four has the most beautiful body and styling and check out those pick ups!! :hyper:

    Sorry but it is beautiful!
