    after seeing a warrior ad in an old issue of bass player that said, "until rolls royce makes basses". it got me thinking about basses and their equivelent as a car. anybody else have any good ones.

    warrior - rolls royce
    fender - ford
    yamaha - chevy
    peavey - dodge
    eb music man - honda
    spector - jaguar
    warwick - mercedes
    smith - porshe
    pedulla - audi
    lakland - bmw
    modulus - lincoln
    rickenbacker - caddilac
    alembec - hummer
    carvin - nissan
    fodera - ferarri
    carl thompson - lamborghini

    The "Marque" you're looking for there is "Rolls Royce".

    My Godin would probably be a PT Cruiser. Solid, retro vibe, kind of a work horse, nothing impressive under the hood, but it gets the job done well.
     
  7. My Ibanez Musican would probably be one of those ugly identity crisis cars like an Element, an Aztek or a Subaru Baja. Its ugly as sin, but its versital.
     
  8. The DeArmond would be this:

    They both have a weird body.
     
  9. I play Reverend basses and drive a Honda Element. Coincidence? :eyebrow:

    I'd say Warwick was more like Volvo-lots of lower-cost models with some nice high-end ones as well.

    I play Elricks, but I don't drive. Does that mean I get a really, really nice bicycle? ;)
