    That's easy for me! Vintage 5 '59 Burst. God it's so awesome. Newsted owns one, as well.

    I'd get a Warwick Thumb Bass 5 string... probably NT if money wan't s problem, but I'd try both just to see :) Then I could trade in my corvette 5 and get a nice 4 string :)

    1961 or 1962 Jazz stack knob. Candy Apple red (custom color w/matching headstock). My cousin actually "almost" has one. His is a '63 with conventional knobs, but it is the custom color I described above. It's beat, & I'd still give him $4k for it, but he won't even discuss it. When you hold it, the vibe is almost hallucinogenic.
