    I'll say that some of the more popular ones that people here seem to enjoy are (in no particular order):

    Geddy Lee
    Roscoe Beck
    stu hamm
    steve harris
    victor bailey

    yeah... something like that.

    For the money the Geddy cannot be beat :cool:
  4. mark hoppus rooooolz man!
  5. i like the stu hamm, just because with a P pickup and two jazz pickups, i'd imagine quite a tonal it looks cool

    I like the Stu Hamm too, but one of the main reasons is that as far as I can tell it's the only one that doesn't have a P or J silhouette.
    Sure, the lineage is evident, but I like seeing models offered that didn't already exist.

    I also like the fact that he actually had them make a pro level medium scale bass.

    I bet this is going to turn into a Geddy Lee Slaughter..

    This might seem kind of strange since I like Country and Southern Rock, but I would like to have a Mike Dirnt signature bass. Which seems to be missing from the list.

    My favourites are Geddy, Sting, and Hoppus, though I'm not terribly fond of any of those artists.

    I like the Geddy, love the Marcus Miller, but I think the Roscoe Beck is the most versatile capable of getting the most sounds and also the most origina. This is the one bass you could use in everything you do from Jazz to rock without have a "sound" like someone else

    I truly think the Geddy bass is a great buy for the money and the average Geddy owner does'nt have a lot of money or a boutique type sweet tooth. This bass puts them in the ballpark with a decent instrument that sounds and plays well. I picked the Victor Bailey jazz because I think it's the cleanest sounding most playable sounding Fender I've ever played! It by far is the funkiest sounding jazz Fender makes. Mine has the older "noiseless" pups which I never liked until I heard the Bailey bass! The bass is dead quiet, cuts through any situation with ease. The only down side is the bass goes for $1500.00 bucks! But hey I got mine! :D

    I picked the Marcus Miller Jazz bass, with the caveat that it's my MM. Mine's a "bit" different from stock, though.

    I went for the "Stu hamm" option, it's still my favourite. I much prefer the Urge bassto the Urge II, I feel it was far superior in looks and it was 32" scale...

    but even so, I still dig the Miller and Bailey basses.

    Where's the Paul Simonon tribute relic P bass? (You know-- the neck isn't connected to the body, but it sure looks cool!)
    But seriously, folks, I voted for the Roscoe Beck.
    And I really wish they'd do a Berry Oakley "tractor" bass.

    There is no "best".

    My personal favorite is the Sting bass.
