    2 Deans :eek: , Sir Benny, and a Cort/Curbow Retro. I've always wanted a Bromberg sig, but I could never find a Peavy one. It's a great bass, but I hate piezos. It's has alot of highend, so I guess it was designed to be a soloist piece. Once you do some EQ'ing, you've got a great tone. The Warwick lookalike is the Dean Sledgehammer. It's an amazing sounding bass, but it's only a matter of time before a suit is filed, so I wanted to have one. I'm really digging lawsuit basses! You all know Sir Benny. He runs the place. The Cort/Curbow was sent to me by Greg Curbow. Great lowend, and the epitome of "slap bass".

    Wow ,quite a load of basses to get at once. Does any one or two of them stand out from the others to be better?

    They all sound great. The best ones are the Benny and the Sledgehammer.

    Very cool! I really dig my Cort/Curbow Retro. I've currently got it set up with Jazz Flats, and a thick foam mute next to the bridge. I played it at my last blues gig with a pic, and got a pretty huge tone with it.

    I'm about to order a custom pickguard for it, too! :hyper:

    I'd love to check out the Dean Bromberg bass at some point.

    :eyebrow:

    Huh. That Sledgehammer looks pretty nice, actually. If it doesn't suck, I guess it'd be a nice alternative for people who don't dig the way Warwicks play.

    How is it, overall?

    It has a great lowend prescence as well as growly mids, but since it's rosewood and not wenge, you're able to shape your tone more to your sound. It's not as dominate as the wenge.
