    i like the Guild B301


    and the yamaha SGV-SBV

  2. Hey barroso - I own one of those Guild B301 basses!!! And I love it!!!! You should have had a poll - that'd be 2 for the Guild!

    I also have a soft spot for Explorer shaped guitars - not the Thunderbird or Firebirds though!!!!

    Might explain my LTD Explorer and my REX2000/5 Spector:D :D
  3. That ashbury de armond one...I've never played one but I'd like to.
  4. i actually really like the firebirds and thunderbirds, but not explorers
  5. Hey-hey Milothicus - it takes all sorts!!!:D :D

  8. Most of Warwick's basses are pretty unusual, and all of them are gorgeous. Especially the Dolphin and Infinity basses. The only thing I don't like about the Dolphin is that the upper horn looks kinda flimsy, like it would break off if you jumped around on stage. But then again, traa Daniels from POD plays one, so it can't be all that weak. Basslabs basses are pretty weird looking too.

    I really like the Warwick Thumb, actually. That, and some of the Basslabs stuff is pretty out there, some of it good, some of it not so good.
  10. I have always liked Thunderbird body shapes, both "normal" and "reverse". As well, the Flying V shape although nearly impossible to play sitting is another good one.

    There was also a bass on Fender's old Custom Shop website that was really cool. I don't remember the name and cannot find the picture since Fender 86'ed their Custom Shop site... anyone have it?. It was kinda Jazz/Mustang shaped with a funky blue finish and a rosewood fingerboard.
  11. too predictable, right? but i'll say it anyway: REVEREND. :)

    Non-reversed Thunderbirds are about as crazy as I would care to get. The reversed models remind a little too much of Nikki Sixx. (Although Tommy Stinson played one too. Hmmm...)

    Very hip! I'll throw in for the Ashbory... That 301 is nice, and those are very comfortable too... Hofner Senator...

    I have become very fond of this shape. It fits like a glove, and dont worry -the horns are plenty strong.
    So it looks like something from one of Yves Tanguy's paintings... me likey.

    I really dig the Ibanez Bean Bass (888?).

    I think Dean has out something now that looks sort of like it.

    I haven't been able to find a good pic on the net.
    Any help/owners out there?
