Rob from Epica has a couple custom Dingwall super Series basses I’d love to get my hands on.
Roger Glover's Machine Head era Rickenbacker.
One of Ox created Fenderbirds.
Gary Tallent's short scale PRS bass
Willie Weeks precision
Rick Danko’s Ripper
Oh darn. I did do a quick scan for images, which begs the rhetorical question...
If one makes a Mothman post with no pic, is it really a Mothman post?
I’ll go with John Wetton’s beautiful and titanic-sounding King Crimson P.
Cool old bass. "Yeah, Carol Kaye played it when they recorded Good Vibrations."
Bruce Thomas's P.
The one from Stark Naked and the Car Thieves.
Bass of doom
That's my choice, too, especially if I could play it through The Wall.
James Jamerson’s 60s p bass.
Next, Joe dart’s white jazz bass, it’d be my backup jazz.
Also, John Taylor’s latest Peavey cirrus, that pearly blue one with the gold bridge. (I’m not a huge fanboy of his, but I dig his work. He provides a great pocket of groove, dance lines for his band.) I just really like the sound and look of that bass though... I think that bass has one of his best tones I’ve heard him use, and it’s a really cool, unique looking bass too, I love it. It must have been a limited edition or custom made model just for him, because I’ve never seen another. If anyone actually has one like his, let me know!
Not sure if this counts, but also Joe dart’s signature stingray. They’re all sold out I think. I’d probably never even get to be in the same room as one.
John Deacon's P
I only just saw this after I posted mine.
I knew I wouldn’t have been the only one
FWIW, should you want a Stanley Brown Bass or an Entwistle Exploiter or any other Alembics played by the famous, Alembic retains all of their templates, blueprints, wiring diagrams, etc., and they will make you one by order, just as they used. It will be beyond fine, but it ain't gonna be cheap . . . . . . .
Remarkably for Stanley, who is definitely a large, full-grown man with big hands, his axes are all short-scale with shaved necks, they make a Ric or Jazz Bass neck feel like a baseball bat.
Being the John Paul Jones nut that I am, his Jazz comes to mind. But Since he has refinished his a few times, removing the "mojo", and I have a Fullerton era 62 reissue that's close enough, I'd pick his Bec Var 8 string.
A close second would be his Fender bass V, although I have heard a bootleg where he was using this bass, and it sounds like doo doo.
