    It's come to my attention that we need a Bob Ross thread . . . So I must oblige.

    With that in mind, as the subject states - If Bob Ross were a bass player, what would he play?

    And to paraphrase a bit, remember there are no wrong answers here . . .

    I'll post my thoughts on his bass of choice at a later date.

    A Bootsy Star Bass. Isn't it obvious?

    70s Precision with, ironically enough, the paint worn off. But it was brown or walnut before.

    Old painter’s pallet converted to a pickguard.

    Denim guitar strap.

    I'm watching him right now on you tube!
    He'd play a natural finish p bass with a hand painted pick guard

    I'd agree! Either that, or a BC Rich Warlock :bassist:

    Oh...maybe he'd play a Ritter...

    Oh, actually, if anyone's ever really paid attention, Bob Ross was missing the finger tip for his left hand (I believe). It would have to be his left hand because the Air Force probably wouldn't have taken him with a missing trigger finger :D

    I bet this wouldn't slow Bob down though.

    It would he made of man-made fibers. Bob would never condone the chopping down of happy little trees.
