    In most cases what is your preference in bass body styles?

  3. Double cut all the way. I haven't seen a single cut design that has done it for me.

    Double cut.

    As a rocker, when I rock out, I just can't seem to get my hear around rocking out with a single cut. It's like rocking out a beer party with the fine china.

    Single-cut. I do like both but something about the SC's really appeals to me. For DC's, I dig the Carl Thompson type stuff and Ken Bebense's Baroque style basses. Weird stuff like Auerswald is always good for me The DC Marchelewski's have been very tasty as well ;)
     
  7. I have both and appreciate them. It really depends on how well the design is executed, not the design itself.

  11. Aesthetically I just cant say I like many, if any that I've seen.

    So what is the advantage of SC besides distinctive look? Stiffer stable neck? Changes in sustain? I assume with the right combos of woods then it could help sustain.

    I agree, Cliff, you need a 'both' option. So I added one.
