In the opinion of the talkbass members. What do u think think is the greatest bass ever?
I'll assume that we're talking Electric Bass Guitars...for historical significance, pure utilitarian functionality, and consistently great sound, (not to mention the many great bassists who have played it), I'll got with the Fender Precision.
Let the flaming begin!!!
Another megathread??? You're going to get so many opinions here, your head will be spinning!
That said, I'm a big fan of Spector basses.
yes we're talking electric basses
I used to think it was the Rickenbacker 4001, but now I'm hooked on the Fender Jazz. I'm torn between the two. I punch my chad for both! Hell, I punch my chad just about every night anyway!
Alembic Series I
Hence the name Throbbinnut?
definitely jay turser. definitely.
if only i could afford one.
Mr. Conklin won't be happy with that statement JT...
shh!!! mum's the word!
When's your Jay Turser signature model 7 with the Lord Only graphics coming out, John?
IMHO I really think that Leo Fender's original design is the best. Just look at how many imitators there are. Precision or Jazz.
I had the chance to play a very nice '66 Jazz bass several weeks ago. This is not Pre-CBS but still very, very nice. It played wonderfully, had tone to die for and was very vibey. When comparing that bass to my Fender Jaco fretted production bass I was stunned at just how close this new bass was to the old one in tone, playability and feel.
I could go on to say that Pedulla is one fine bass and I am lusting for a fretless 5-string US Masters.
Pedulla Buzz Bass! right up there with sliced bread
Warwick Corvette FNA Jazzman
That's what I would go with. Yes, yes, yes, there are basses out the with better build and electronics like the Sadowskys and Laklands and the other exotics, but the Fenders and cockroaches are what will be standing after the Big One
Spector NS-4, NS-5, NS-6
Fendir squiares!! the action is grate!
Fretless rickenbacker! 4003FL!
I would have to say a pre-cbs precision. Fender is the most successful guitar manufacturer ever since the first fender was made. Fenders are copied more than any other, and the pre-cbs models are the best sounding guitars ever made.
(that's just my opinion and a couple facts)
