I'm interested in hereing about everyone's "holy grail". That bass that you swear to yourself that you'll get, but haven't been able to get your hands on one. Maybe it's really hard to find, or just really expensive. I've always kept my eyes open for a mint-green non-reverse thunder bird, man those things look so sweet. They're vintage looking, but still somthing different from the old fender shape; that little thunderbird decal is the sprinkles on the icing. and if they sound anything like the "reverse body" version, it's gotta be a great bass. I've seen several on ebay, but I'm currently saving my money for a Jazz bass (every bass player needs one, imo).
