To me, anything with more than five strings or with weird shapes
+1 Some of the odd Warwick shapes are just hideous.
just about anything that doesnt look classic looking (like a p bass, J bass, Stingray, etc). yeah im very close minded.
I think I'd have anything for free... if I really didn't like it I could sell it and buy something I did like
I probably wouldn't take Hitler's bass for free.. Well, actually, I would. Then I'd sell it and buy a dozen Roscoes
Oh, and just in case you guys didn't know:
Hitler didn't die, he just changed his name to Ken Smith.
Anything with more than 4 strings, active electronics, or a coffee table top. Yup, there I said it for everyone who hates them.
now scuse me while I play my 6 string Rob Allen.
I'll never own another Fender!
anything free is good enough for me
Ha! I didn't see the "free" part . . . can I amend my earlier comment ebay is a wonderful thing!
In the early 70's I was on the road, everything got stolen, and I picked up a Fender Telecaster Bass. Even allowing for the fact that I was predisposed to disliking it by the circumstances surrounding its hasty acquisition, the effin' thing had the weight and elegance of a railroad tie, sounded like dog doo, and broke strings on a nightly basis (and strings cost more then than they do now!). Probably worth a lot of money now, but... bon voyage! I'd never want another one, that's for sure.
A EBMM "Big Al"........
I would never own an SX bass. Tried one a year or so ago and had to send it back. Piece of junk.
Basses are like beer and food. The best ones are free!
Anything made by Fender.
I just don't dig the classic look. I'd take them for free, but then I'd sell them. I've got nothing against the tone, just vintage style basses look like toys to me.
But I've never played one either. If It played/sounded great, I'd change my mind. Based on looks however, meh...not my thing.
However your title also says "for free" and I'm sorry but I'd take ANY bass for free. I mean unless it was made of fecal matter, but they don't usually do that.
Wow, you posted that 15 minutes ago and so far not ONE SX junkie posted a rebuttal and called for your head?!?! I would have figured there would have been hundreds by now!
