    I'd need an 8 space rack case:

    Pro Audio Chameleon Rack Light (pure looks), Furman RP-8 Power Conditioner, Nady UHF-10 Wireless(keep on top of case), Boss NS-50 Stereo Noise Suppressor Pro-->1/2 Rack Multi-effects Processor(haven't decided which, yet)--> Tech 21 Bass Sansamp RBI-->Sabine RT-7000 Tuner-->SWR 750x Pro Bass Head-->2x SWR Goliath Srs stacked on top of each other.

    And as for basses, I'd like to retire with the following:

    My current MIM Jazz (Wine Red finish, mirror pickguard, Rosewood Neck, Black J-retro preamp, with Basslines Hot pickups)
    Ernie Ball MusicMan Stingray (translucent teal, matching headstock, rosewood neck, mirror pickguard)
    1976 Fender Precision Bass (natural finish, Rosewood neck, black pearloid pickguard, Basslines Quarter Pounder Pickup)
    Modulus Flea Bass(blue sparkle, Lane Poor pickup, with, you guessed it, mirror pickguard)
    Tobias Toby Pro-5 (natural satin finish, Basslines Phase 2 Soapbars, STC-3 preamp)

    Thats my wish list.

    Why are these threads getting old. It was cool when the first person asked this question but now its like dog poop.
  9. I think I could be satisfied with:

    Fender Precision 62' RI (Sunburst) strung w/ Fender 9050 flats
    Fender Jazz 70's RI (CAR)
    Fender Jazz Fretless (Sunburst)
    Lakland Joe Osborne (Sunburst) w/ J-Retro

    Ampeg SVP Pro Preamp
    Carvin DCM2000 Power amp
    Ampeg 4x10 HLF
    Ampeg B100R (for recording and small gigs)

    Boss TU-2 Tuner

    I think I would die happy if I had these... sigh...

    I'd probably like to have a different set up of cabs and pre/power,,, so I could mix and match for different tones etc.

    Like,, a Bergantino HT322 and ACME Low B-4 for cabs, and an Ampeg svt4 and Kern IP-777 + Carvin DCM1500 for juice.

    big rig
    [footswitchable between these preamps]
    * f1x
    * Demeter hbp (name-?) the one with the parametric EQ)
    * PLX 2402

    -into- [again footswitchable between cabs]
    * 2x Bergie ht322
    * JBL d-180 loaded 215 monster

    baby rig
    * WW ultra hi power

    Amp: the mystical magical amp of enlightenment, 10000 watts.....one volume control.....the rest is controled by your own brain waves.....and fits in the palm of your hand!

    Cabs: The cab formerly owned by Zeus himself: a 112 that has the earthquaking capabilities of a 21"er, while retaining that crystal clear clarity of an 8, fitting in a space no wider than the mystical cone itself, made of plywood made from the tree of life, and finally, dipped in the same water as Achilles, (but without the missed spot). The cab which may exceed the physical limits, to make decibles far beyond any can fathom!

    yep.......thats it......and my lowly fender running though it all.
  20. I'd be satisfied with :

    Fender American Jazz Bass (black, rosewood)
    Acoustic 360/361 amp

    I like it simple... :cool: :bassist:
