What bass would you buy...model,color,etc.?
I would buy a late 70s Yamaha BB1000 tobacco burst or BB800 black and pocket the $1500 or $1600 I'd have left over.
Since I already have a used Sadowsky Metro, I’ll go with an AVRI 63 P in Sonic Blue.
Another Roscoe probably...
I would buy 2 used 5 strings. 1 a Jazz style and one a MM style. I'd do a bit of modding, Hipshot ultralites, P pickup on the MM. Then deposit $1200 in my ROTH.
A used Sadowsky Metro or another one I am really wanting bad and have since they were released is a Fender Select Precision bass. I don’t know if $2k would buy one or not but if possible, I would love a used Nordstrand bass. I have told Carey Nordstrand that if he decides to build basses again to add me to the list. I love the pickups he builds and use them exclusively in my guitars and basses but have wanted a Nordstrand bass for years!
MM Cutlass. Red (because color matters).
I am surprised no one said Fender.
I would love to try a Roscoe...
nothing on my list is that cheap
Warwick NT 5
Best value would be a vintage Fender P or J. I think 2 grand can get you something from the 70s.
G&L Kiloton 4 (lefty!) in clear red over spalted maple over swamp ash, 3-ply black pick guard, maple fingerboard with black blocks and no binding, vintage tint satin, 1 5/8" nut, 12" radius. To match her sister:
I'd put the $400 left over towards a sweet tube preamp.
That was easy. Now ask me about amps!
MIJ Jazz for $600
Fender Jazz JB62 62 Vintage Reissue Jazz Bass CIJ 1999-2002 Three Tone Sunburst
A bunch of Warmoth parts most likely. Something in purpleheart and maple I suspect depending what's available.
I'd much rather spend it on more speaker cabinets.
a Tokai Talbot is highest on my GAS list, as are a Torzal Twist and the Gibson EB-1 violin
the Talbot leaves room for more Peavey Zodiac BXPs, a few select Harley Bensons and old Roadstar IIs
in time they will all be had... LOL if I'm graced with the time!
I'd put it towards the Burns Bison I over every time I walk into my local 'swop shop'
I’ll need the cash first. PM it to me and I’ll create a NBD so you can see the bass. Thanks in advance.
Electric Basses SR - SR1700BE PREMIUM | Ibanez guitars
Probably order another Maruszczyk to compliment the one I have. Probably an active 5-string Elwood (J style).
