    I believe the correct answer to this question is "I'd kick the @@@ of whomever made that rule." I'm forgetting the bassist to whom this quote is attributed, but I'd have to agree.

    I can't be tied down, man . . .

    I guess you mean electric bass, since this is the electric bass forum. :) If I could only have one bass, it would be my main upright. But for electric ... it would have to be the Stingray 5 that I had Mike Lull convert to fretless for me. Defretted and the fingerboard is coated in an ultra-hard polymer finish, sort of like the Pedulla buzz basses.

    That one just barely beats out my fretless P-bass.

    Cheers

    Only one bass?

    How could life be so cruel?

    A Ramirez bass..built for me by Wilser Ramirez...I am still waiting for it to be built!
     
  8. This is actually a pretty odd question for me to answer. I have played guitar on and off for about 20 years and the whole time I have NEVER owned more than 2 guitars at any one time (1 acoustic, 1 electric).

    I have played bass for 9 months now and own 6 basses. ***?! You folks are bad influences. BTW, all 6 are 4 bangers, fretted. I am thinking about getting a fretless soon.

    So a better question may be: What is it about a bass that makes you NEED more than 2 or 3?! I can tell you that I am MORE than happy with just my Schecter C1 Classic electric guitar, but I could not tell you which bass I would happily give up!

  10. I'd make mine simple. Fender MIA Jazz Bass '08, black with a maple neck, and a red tort pick guard.
     
  11. I refuse to answer that question incase my woman reads it.

    I could see myself getting the most use out of an upright if I was stuck with one bass.
