    I have a ways to go, but for those who would/could.....
    If you had the chance to have a company name a bass after you,

    1: who would you choose (Fender,Ken Smith,etc...)
    2: what would you call it
    3: how many strings

    :bassist:
     
  2. I'd call it the Fieldy and it would be made by Ibanez.

    Or

    Spector
    Scud-x*
    4-5-6

    *So named because my bass playing is offensive, inacurate, dangerous to use, and shows up below radar when you need it least. My bass would bear that burden of shame.

    4 string headless, de tunable bridge, Active EMG's, carbon fretboard, Clear body.

    It would look like this, body shape wise, but it would have frets, and a de tunable bridge.

    either a Spector NS or a modded Fender Jazz, and it would be called mintbass.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Curbow or Sadowsky, definitely.

    Curbow: 6 string fretted with single Bart soapbar and active Bart pre.

    Sadowsky: Black 4 string active Jazz with tortoise shell pickguard, maple neck, black block inlays, brass nut, Badass II bridge, Bartolini jazz pickups and preamp.

    It's probably a safe bet that I'me a fan of Barts. :D

    fender

    chris walls model

    5-string with no controls of any kind except a 3 position mid cut/boost swicth (I don't know if that kind of switch even exists) and a built in distortion switch, 2 5-string jbass pickups on a jaguar body shape, a super thin graphite reinforced v shape neck and a lefty (5+0 tuning key configuration) headstock (with a black finish), black pickgaurd and a natural finish on an ash body
     
  16. Musicman

    "Smittie"

    5 strings

    2 Humbucking Pups, with a SR4 pickguard and a body simlar to a SR5 but singlecut.

    I changed my mind about the electronics, still with the j pickups I'd want a single volume control and a pan control on it but on the side of the body I want a three band eq that can only be adjusted with a screw driver so I don't bump the nobs and screw up my tone
     
  18. Warwick five string dolphin shape, all controls hidden inside electronics cavity except slap contour switch, hipshot drop d tuner, Warwick jazzman pickup config.

    And i don't really care what its called.
     
  19. Rickenbacker.
    4003JG.
    4 strings.

    I guess the only change I'd make would be the neck pickup would have to be height adjustable, and the bridge more easy to intonate. As it is, set up is the only major pain on this bass.
