  5. Shouldn't there be a choice involving fava beans and Chianti.

    Oh wait. That would leave me bassless. :(

    That topic is funny. For a long time I believed I had no use of any Fender. Now that I have a Fender P., it is probably the most exciting bass I own, and it is actually the one I play the most, even more than my Stingray 5.

    So, even on a joke mode, I really can't vote in this poll. I want no harm done to any Fender.:(

    I would want none of the poll's options to happen to my very nice blue bass.

    The spirit of Leo FENDER may rise and bite you in the a** for even thinking of denigrating the instrument that started it ALL!!!
    My first axe was a '70 black/rosewood P-Bass that some miscreant stole! No worries-He has a chair in H-E-L-L waiting for him (or her).
    I am the PROUD & happy owner of a '69 P-Bass that I restored-It is mojo/funk personified and anybody wants to buy it, their last name better be Gates & that may not cut it either.
    I am a lover of exotic woods, high-end electronics and the works of many fine luthiers, BUT- This slab is the absolute highest order of the high- You cannot possibly do better than a FENDER-
    Jeez, man, EVERYONE KNOWS THAT!

    P.S. PMKelly; Philbiker, those are the KIND!!!!!

    Currently, the Fender RB5.

    Tell you what, though, I'd love to find the Funk Machine, if only to feel the funk for a few days before returning it to the Jamerson family.

    I've never tried and RB5. I think I need to. People keep bugging out about that bass, and I've never even seen one in person.

    Of course, untill I can play one, my favorite Fender bass is the American Precision Deluxe. The one with the powerbucker in the bridge. That is one HONEY of a bass. Infact, it's sort of the model that I'm taking for the FBB custom I'm eyeing.

    True, those of us who own the RB5 tend to rave a lot about it. Just so your expectations aren't raised too high, here are reasons why some don't care for the RB5:
    1) Chunky neck profile
    2) Weight (not as bad as some of the Warwicks or 70's Fenders I've played, but still hefty)
    3) Low output

    If none of those factors are turn-offs, you should definitely try one as soon as the opportunity arises.
