I don't so much have dream basses as dream prices.....
I was always told to play like notes cost me money.
My Hammersmith 5. Nordy neck pickup. Duncan dual coil bridge. Volume and tone. 3 way switch for neck/both/bridge. 3 way switch for series/single/parallel. 35" scale and 19mm spacing. Matte black. Right around 8 pounds. A neck to die for. I seriously can't imagine a more perfect bass for me.
Eh, no such thing, and most production instruments these days are good enough. If I had magic powers, I'd use them to make myself a better player.
No need to will it into existence, Fender already did it for me.
Fender Jazz with single coil at the neck, humbucker at the HiMass bridge, active/passive switch, rosewood fretboard with a thin (front to back) neck and a 1.5" nut...for $1000 or less. So, basically a spec'd MIM Fender bass. That configuration in a P body would be cool, too.
A Tber here Rojo412 made this work of Art! I can only imagine it’s tonal capacity but my only request would be to make a 34.5 scale.. That would be the ONE!
Yeah maybe a way to change the pickups configurations on demand would be want.
While not the white model, this one meets the same standards as the white one does for you.
Everything I want and need, and nothing I don't. Would make a great companion to my HH 'Ray 5.
If my SB1 didn't neck dive it would be perfect. It's not real bad but could be better.
We’re not so far off from this as you might think:
A headset that reads your brainwaves
an updated version of this..
My dream bass?
One with a rotary switch that sounded like the following.
1955 P bass flat wounds.
1957 P bass flat wounds
1966 P bass roundwounds.
1962 J bass flat wounds
1975 J bass roundwounds
1940-50's Kay upright.
1960's Hofner flat wounds
I know Line 6 tried this but ,Hey, it didn't work out.
One that magically morphs into anything I want to play any time I want to play it. Still wouldn't satisfy my GAS but it's a good start.
A James Tyler 5 with all the candy
A BC Rich Eagle 4 loaded
I would need three:
1. a 7/8 scale P Bass with same burst as my 72 Fretless P, Black nylon tapewounds, bridge and PUP covers, and a thumb rest, the metal knurled knobs, non plywood body, etc.
2. a 1976 or so JBII Guild solid body, double PUP, with phase switch, mahogany body, with just a hint more note definition than my last one
3. either a Guild Semi Hollow in deep cherry, or a Gibson EB2 in a deep cherry, double PUP, with phase switch, mahogany(?)body, Black Tapewounds
My perfect amp
Size of a Rumble 100, made by Ampeg, to sound exactly like a B15S loaded with a K140, VTB for controls, maybe an ultra low switch, maybe a mid control, w/ext speaker jack, phones out, maybe a compressor on/off with a control knob, DI with ground lift and before/after switch, in an Anvil flight case, weight is of little to no concern (after all it's an Ampeg), no 3 way cab, no tweeter.
I'd like a 24 fret Stingray 5-H, 2 band EQ, that's not too heavy and has a slim heel joint.
Mine, but 2lbs lighter, no neck dive whatsoever, and upgraded hardware.
my NYC Sadowsky JJ
A sunburst Tony Franklin without the bridge pickup or switch would be perfect for me (my 44 year old fretless neck is getting a bit worn)
