Just wondering what everyone prefers/thinks looks cooler.
Name one good singlecut mass production bass.
Les Pauls are one thing, but for the most part electric guitars of any kind just look better double cut in my opinion. The JP and Nordstrom (spelling is wrong I'm sure I don't even know if that's the name) single cut basses are not bad though.
It doesn't have to be mass production. Just your ideal bass design.
Why? Do you mean that as a way to determine which look better?
I went with the single cut. I like 'em both, but something about the way the single cut looks in bass, I really dig it.
Singlecuts just look so classy. I can't describe it. I think that big companies should consider a mass production model singlecut for under $1k or so. To get a singlecut nowadays you need to lay down big $ for a custom or boutique bass.
Be wary of good looks!
Unless they are very carefully designed and made, there can be serious issues with a singlecut bass.
Especially in the way it affects the neck. One side is anchored more than the other and can result in neck problems (warping, twisting, etc.) I'm sure others will be able to better articulate it than I can, especially in the luthiers forums but I've had more than one custom builder discuss the pros and cons of singlecuts with me and I'll take the double cut every time!
i personally prefer the double cut more.
It really depends on the bass IMO. I find Elricks to be very hot as singlecuts, but there's lots of singlecuts I hate.
I second that. Not Elricks in particular, but while I find the majority of singlecuts to be ugly, some of my favorite designs are singlecuts. They can be the best and the worst.
Those aren't the only 2 basses to choose from...
I like both and am content playing either as long as they're good basses..
But I love single-cuts...
My basses are doublecut but i cna appreciate a nice singlecut. The problem is that most singlecuts are custom basses and not everyone can afford them. I could afford one (just one..) if i worked my behind off but im equally as happy with Ernie Ball basses. To me, they do everything id want a custom to do, for around $1000-$1500.
That beind said, i used to own a production Singlecut, although it didnt extend to the 12th fret it was still a singlecut.
Holy **** those are ugly as hell!
Double for me.
I thought the same when I first started coming here(though I didn't voice it as strongly lol).
They have grown on me. Maybe not that particular one, but some stambaugh and CB-bass single cut 4 strings look great. I tend to like the more slim singcuts.
I still wouldn't own one, but I see their appeal now.
Single-cuts other than Les Pauls look freaky to me, and not in a good way.
This bass wins this and all threads.
