    Like the title says. It can be American made or made in other countries but let's see everyone's basses that are the most common.

    Mine is probably my 2009 Music Man Stingray 4H that is black on black pickguard with an all maple neck, fretboard and headstock. I can tell how many musicians I have seen playing this exact bass set up but I like it and love not only the way it sounds but looks too. I'm one of those folks who loves black basses and guitars.


    Probably the other one that I have that is also a very commonly sold bass is my 2005 Music Man Sterling 4H in Natural with white pickguard and all maple neck, fretboard and headstock.

    All of my basses are unlined fretless. That leaves mine out of the commonly sold.

    My only bass at this point is a MIM Precision. So far the only things I've replaced are the knobs and the bridge, but I still have the originals of both.

    Mine's white on white with a rosewood fretboard though; I don't see too many like that.

    If you could somehow incorporate the tree reflections into the finish, that would be the coolest of all time, in any dimension.
  7. You know, I've never thought of that, I would love that kind of finish on my bass! You are onto something good there.:hyper:

    This is probably a pretty good representation of “common” US basses; the old headstock fretless G&L SB1 isn’t real common, but the MIA Jazz, MIA P, 4003, and StingRay 4 are often seen for sale.


    In fact MY Piezo bridged StingRay is in the TB Classifieds right now. I just can’t “bond” with her, and I think it’s a waste of a very nice bass to just let it sit in a case, so it's on the market.

    I had one, tough to not scratch the other basses when removing one.

    Yes, it is when all of the slots are filled, for gigs I put a max of three basses per case. Plenty of room for switching on the fly without bumping basses, quicker and easier than conventional stands.

    I just filled the case shown for a family pic of the MIA "classic standards" in my stable.
