I mean basically the shape of the body. There are some basses that I think are ugly, but other people think are beautiful, and vice versa. So I may think I have the coolest looking bass in the world, but how many audience members will feel the same? The same goes for color. I've noticed that if I love a bass for it's playability and tone, then the look of the bass will grow on me over time. I used to think that Jaguar basses looked cool, but the few that I've tried have had neck dive issues, so now I see it as a bass that will fight me. Same for many LP style bodies. So what I look for in a bass body now is a small size (to cut down on weight) and a long upper horn, ending around the 11th or 12th fret (for perfect balance) even though I think there are many sexier designs out there. Does anyone else feel the same?
