    That is cool since you can't really hear bass in metal.

    I think that bass would be better for Country music.

    Guns = Country Music
    Medieval Weapons = Metal

    Wow. I don't like metal, I don't like steampunk, but that ESP is awesome!

    A machine gun bass would be best for hip-hop, though. For country you want a deer rifle bass or a shotgun bass. For metal, yeah, like Jive1 says, something medieval. Axe basses have been overdone, though, so maybe a catapult? Or a trebuchet?

    So I love the guitar strap but hate the bass. but imagine how heavy that strap would be ha. and im kind of a gun nut and it doesnt look right. Its got a g36 style sight rail with a thompson style stock. and the rest is modeled after an ak47. If they made a all g36 bass i might buy one ha.

    Hip-Hop: Revolver/(sub)-machine gun, knifes are acceptable
    Metal: Something medieval

    THAT IS AWESOME!! ( and I NEVER thought I would think that! )
    that esp guitar is strangely alluring too, and I usually go for classic and understated.
     
  11. That AK bass reminds me of Tosh's M16 guitar. Are you ready for the Bush Doctor?

    a medevial bass is only good if it can be used as a weapon.
     
  13. Any bass in the right hands can be used as a weapon.
     
  14. any bass in the left hands can be used as a weapon!

    ps. I would play a bass shaped like a two-handed greatsword, or I'd just get a warwick katana, even though its not shaped like one it has the name - so I guess its a poser bass.

    I thought that the best bass for metal was a Fender Jazz Bass (although, to be fair, it's the best bass for everything).

    +1, used to love seeing those guys, but their last album seemed a little too "breakdown-ey" for me.
