    I'd rather have the giant headstock bass and the battle ax looking bass than a fodera.

    While I'd probably accept anything free, I wouldn't keep 99.9% of 4-string basses. 5 for me please :)
     
  3. I'd take any bass for free.

    Any kind of singlecut I would immediately sell if given to me, or a beatle bass.

    The bass violin! I hate how that thing looks, and for the sound I can get with it, I can get from any other bass. pretty useless.

  8. Well, everything that has been artificially "reliced" :rollno:

    Besides that, I wouldn't buy a Fender (but certainly take it if it's free :smug:)

    I would never touch anything with one of those ''whaleback'' bodies with the single cutaway and the body that joins with the neck.

    Those things make me wanna barf!

    I don't care, I someone gives me a bass for free, even If I don't like it, I take it just to try to make some music with it .

    though i think anything that doesent sound like a picked P with the tone up, the only basses i wouldnt have for free are badly broken ones.
     
  14. Lightwave. Been there, done that :meh: :spit:
     
  15. market rate fender stuff - I have copies that are better than my early vintages.
     
  16. I really only like passive Fenders. If I ever went active, maybe a Lakland or MM. But that's it. And sorry I don't really dig Rickenbackers.
     
  17. Yeah. I had lice once. I had to use shampoo that really burned. Why anyone would want that again is beyond me.

    I cant think of anything I would turn down for free. I would at least give it a shot. As so many others have said, I could just sell it if I didnt like it.

    However, if I had to PAY for something, (assuming $$ is no object), I just dont "get" Ritters. I'd never order one if I had to pay for it.

    I'm not a strict P-bass, J-bass traditionalist (I owned a Steinberger back in the day!) but Ritters just dont appeal to me at all.
