    Yep, the two funkiest. Too bad neither come in an identical sounding five.

    I'd have to say Jazz bass, because it's a choice lots o' people could agree with. Secretly, I'm torn between a J and a Cirrus 4, which is one delightfully, über-liciously funky instrument.

    Jazz bass, without a doubt.

    Make sure you get a maple fingerboard!

    Any funkier than that, and you're gonna need oxygen!

    THAT'S THE TRUTH! ;) :D

    The other two songs had some nice style in them too.

    Strawberry Letter! :hyper:

    The memories. :)

    Without a doubt, the funkiest bass, after all a bass isn't funky by itself![​IMG]

    I think you're the first moe.ron I've seen on here. I haven't listened to them much lately though - last I saw Rob was playing a Modulus Flea bass? I think "jam bassists" are Mostly unheard of (sans Gordon & now Claypool) and he's a damn fine player.
