    What is your favorite bass out of your collection? That one bass you can always turn to. Whether it was handed down to you, or it was that rare find in a shop in some back alley. Lets see your favorite and most prized bass and tell why it is so special to you.(Uprights included)

  5. Valerus, what a sweet looking bass.
  6. It'll be this one as of tomorrow when I get it. It's my new Valenti J5 with EMG's and 18v Aggie OBP3 preamp. I only have 1 other 5'er right now so this one will take over as my main bass and my Tobias Renegade will be my back up.

    I wouldn't like to talk about a "favorite" since I'm truly in love with all of my instruments. I prefer just to say that this is my main gigging bass:

    It's a toss up for me, depending on my mood. Either my Sadowsky UV70....


    Or my trusty old '75 P...

    For me, it is this Ken Lawrence Brase 5. Ken's basses are nothing short of incredible!

    I've posted pics of this bass a million times, but you asked, so here it is:


    It's a Carvin LB70. I play other basses and always will, but this bass just fits me, the neck is just so darn sweet, and the tone is just right for me and my playing style.

    I have a 3-way tie. I'll put them in pretty much the order, but it's so close my answer could change tomorrow.
