    If you were giving a choice to play one bass for a year what would be your choice.
     
  2. Been playing a Fender Jazz four banger for the last four years, but I wouldn't mind trying an Afterburner II, or a Elrick Platinum 5, for a year or so.

    Probably a Kramer Aluminum neck.. That was my first bass, and I hated it all to hell bad tone, poor playability. It would definitely make me appreciate what I have more to be stuck on a monstrosity such as that for a year... that and I have bad karma, so need to pay the piper. :ninja:

    Lots of us Do play one bass a year. Ive been playing my Godin for about a year, and probably will be playing it for another .75 of a year until i get a new bass. (i have an SX that i dont play cause the neck kinda sucks, and a Spector q5 i dont play bc i dont liek 5 strings, its for sale)

    It would have to be a Dingwall... I've been dying to hear that low B on a 37" scale. I'd also like to see if I could get used to thta fanned fret system. By all accounts, you can hear the difference, but I don't have the biggest of hands. I'd love to have a year to try to get acclimated to it.

    If I could only have one bass, I would pick that sweet Sadowsky five string P-bass that they just debuted. :bassist:

    If I could only keep one, this would be it-my trusty Vigier Excess1. It does everything I need.

    Lately I've been wanting to really try a Status Retro-active J bass. I wouldn't mind taking a year to try it out.
