Weapon of choice

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by snap_off, Mar 15, 2003.

  1. So what bass does every one prefer to use? I heard some guy near the bottom had bought a rickenbacker, thats just not me. I Prefer something like a Warwick neck thu or a fretless Music man.

    Is it just me or is Pastorius a legend?
  2. I love my gibson grabber!!!!

    And i love to post pix!

    ooooh ya! I also love p-basses, and J's, this bass has a bit of both, with some hollow-body tone, with some phat DB tone too.. its , i lvoe it!


  3. Who?

    I like old 4-strings...just the kinda guy i am.
  4. My '86 Rickenbacker 4003 or a nice '77 Jazz Bass, or a sweet Warrior sig. 4 string... which I'm still saving up for :(
  5. i'd like a warwick four (corvette, maybe a thumb) but i'm poor. so i got an ESP/LTD c-304. four string, neck through, EMGs...it's alright.
    can't wait til i put my bay (modifiend washburn xb100) back together after i'm done with mods.

    Fender Jazz or P, 4 strings and a maple board.
  7. Ditto. My fingerboard wood doesn't matter too much to me. Rosewood, ebony, maple, whatever, just let me play.

    Weapon of coice? Hmn...

    4 string, P style neck, strung BEAD with EMG electronics.

    And while I continously lust for a 5er, I think that a BEAD bass would get me just as far.

    I prefer a bass that can be punchy and agressive for a nice slap tone, but with the turn of a knob, have a nice bassy clean jazz tone. Warwick Corvette Proline, Peavey Cirrus, Alembic essence, and Lakland 44-02 and55-02 all fit these requirements.

    My weapon of choice is my Curbow J-bass..
    It's tuned DGCF, which I use for most everything in both my bands. For standard-tuned stuff, I still use my magical Reverend Rumblefish.

    Either you're really tall, or that's some tiny short scale bass. Probably the former.:cool:

    My StingRay5 w/maple board. I had a showchoir competition yesterday and received many compliments on the tone and how it looks. HighSchool Show Choir w/a Cherry Sunburst Ray5 is worth it just for the reactions from other bassists/performers and parents. :D Thats all :bassist:
