  4. umm, well, ibanez seems to be working on improving their current line of basses. there seems to be quite a few people on this site with ibanez basses. just my two cents.

    What about Warwicks? They fit the bill, don't they?

    Oh sure, now you went and changed the poll. Now I want to change my answer!

    Subtract one from "I hate all of them" and add one to "Fender". :)

    But... but... he asked for *not* traditional, and most Fender basses are about as traditional as you can get!!

    I don't care about tradition....and I like pretty much any modern bass better than a Fender or any other "classic" bass.
    Why sound like everybody else?

    Ironically most bassists I know go for modern sounds. So I end up sounding most unique playing my 62 Jazz Bass reissue.
  14. The Japanese reissue? I actually almost bought one of those instead of my Yamaha

    Well the pool originally didn't have Fender as one of hte options but then Ryan Lunneborg just came and chenged it......i don't want to be rude but u just made the pool worse.

    Hey JMX i'm REALLY sorry about the final game....(maybe because i'm Brazilian)
  16. Deutschland ERRRRR, Warwick Uber Alles!
    Congrats, Brazil. (El Senhor es Brasileno--at least for today...and I don't even speak Portuguese). I would agree with someone earlier's assessment of Ibanez; definitely a company to watch, but there is a reason why Warwick claims to be the #1 high-end production bass builder out there. Peavey has also been given short shrift here. I am not a fan of 35" scale but a Cirrus did melt in my hands not too long ago....this is the same way that I discovered and fell in love with The Sound of Wood.

    This is the reason that Fender made it on there. Other than that, I just picked a few others off the top of my head.

    Just ignore the fact that it is on there.
  18. Actually my Yamaha is a Jazz-Style bass but it has active electronics and everything is a bit more modern than on a fender jazz.
