    Be ready to wet your pants with bass # X - which is it?

    The Gretsch wins. Pertiest too.

    I'd like to see an Epi JC and an Eastwood Classic 4 added. I think the JC would win against the Gretsch by a narrow margin. ;)

    I like whatever the first black one was. Yeah... I skimmed the vid, despite the fact that I thought it was nicely put together.

    I own a Jack Casady and have just obtained this Epiphone Zenith, and I have to tell you it will be a very close match! Either of thses two are better, tone wise, than the original suggestions, and right now I think the Zenith is better than the JC!

    The Gretsch still has the foam strip under the bridge.
    Coronado is recorded at half the volume as the others.
    20 seconds of no playing in the middle.
    Each bass with different strings and different effects.

    You can't compare any of them.
