So I asked my wife what the best bass for metal was....

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by capnsandwich, Apr 17, 2010.

  1. At first she said "an Ebay bass," but I had to have her be more specific so last night, after the 20th time of me asking her, she said a P Bass.

    So, what did your wife/girlfriend say when you asked her what the best bass for metal was?

    lol. The title made me think this was a Bass Humor thread.

    Anyway... guess she couldn't tell a Warwick from a Steinberger, so better not ask...
  4. Ask anyway. She may know more than you think.

  7. At my first date with any girl I would (and do) start by making it clear that I play the bass and not the (usual) guitar.
    Right now I'm single, so guess I'll post again later :p

    Wait, this IS turning into a Bass Humor thread.
  8. Yeah, maybe the mods may want to move it. I put it here because this is where all the other "best bass for metal" threads are.

    Full disclosure, I'm a certified Fender technician working in a music store that carries Fender, Yamaha, and Ibanez products among others.
    My wife says that it's whatever bass I chose to bring to the gig :)

    My wife would probably decide based on color. I'll ask her later, but I bet she'll say "the blue one." That would be my G&L L-1500, not a bad choice at all!

    Mine said " A copper base is best, as it distributes the heat better. A stainless base is OK, but copper is best".

    My girlfriend said, "I'll call you back in a few hours. I'm trying to sleep. It's 7:00 am on a Saturday morning, a-hole."


    She's a keeper.
  14. Awesome! She sure is a keeper.

    I woke my wife up after the Coyotes/Red Wings game and asked her. She told me P Bass I think just to shut me up.

    I called her again and she sent it to voicemail. Just got a response text that said "idk why you're asking me."

    She's so close to an actual answer!
  17. I'll ask mine when she gets home. I bet she says P-bass, because she knows I don't have one. She saw a guy with one that was the same color scheme as my J. I told her it was a P bass. Now to her every bass that isn't mine is a P. She has underwear with guitars on them, she said they were basses. I argued "no, those are hollow body guitars," to which she said, "they're P-basses!"
  18. Mine MADE me buy a Warwick Corvette $$! I'm not kiddin'!
