    Same here, can't get over the shape of the top horn on Warwicks... seem almost phallic.

    You can also keep your Flying Vs, Explorers and Les Paul basses (damn, Gibson make some ugly shapes!) and anything with a pointy or non-existant headstock.

    (You can give me any of those and even if it is made of magic wood that will make me play like Chris Squier I will NOT play it... in public that is, I'll gladly record with it!! :D )

    Oh, come on! Everyone knows that SX junkies don't wake up until noon. :D
     
  4. Hey, I was up at 6 and running. Glad I made it with an hour to spare.

    He got a lemon. What do you expect from $100 though? Seriously? It's affordable, doesn't sound that bad, upgradeable, and did I mention it was cheap? Anyway. I wouldn't want the Hohner Violin Bass at all. Just don't like the shape.
     
  5. Steinberger, I just hate how they look.

    There is plenty that I would not pay for.
    For free however I'd take anything ( could always sell it, no? )

    +1 on the Steinberger, or anything in a warlock or V shape

    I'm the opposite.
    I DON'T want anything classic looking. No JB, no PB, no Stingray at all...
    Closest thing I've considered is a Lakland, only for the sound.
     
  12. That's pretty silly since they are arguably the best values Fender makes!

    +1, although I also hate how they feel and sound as well.
    In fact anything without a head.

  15. Free bass come to Papa!
     

  16. They're all at the local Denny's plotting his death over a shared Grand Slam Breakfast. :D j/k

    From a visual standpoint, I don't care for anything pointy. just not my thing. Anything with a classic shape or derivative of it does it for me.

    Sound wise, I'll stick with plain old pots and caps and the fewer knobs the better. Nothing active for me.

    The prettiest and easiest playing bass I've got is a Schecter Elite. and it just sits there while I reach for one of it's plain jane siblings.

  17. AM I really the first to say it?

    anyway, I would take anything for free but if, let's say, I had to spend a little amount for any bass, well, I'd never take an hofner.

    Um, pretty much anything that's not a passive Fender Jazz styled-bass with more than 4 strings.

    I would take a Fender P or a Stingray / Sterling for free though :p
