    Lately, all I want is a Rickenbacker 4003.

    I've also got my eye on a Gibson Thunderbird.

    Lately I've been gassing for some kind of 5-string P bass, maybe with a P+MM, rosewood board.

    I've wanted an MTD 635 for awhile now... I would love a Dingwall, too. Others on my list (but probably won't ever really buy) are a Pedulla Rapture 5 P+J, a Modulus Genesis 5er, or a Zon or Status 5 or 6.

    I loved the tone of my old Spector NS-5, but I didn't like much else about it, so I probably won't buy another one (that's why I sold it in the first place). But as long as we're talking about dream bass collections, I'd have one of those in there, too.

    My one dream bass would be a carbon-fiber neck (a la Modulus) but on an MTD 635 (asymmetrical wide/thin neck), except with a 34" scale, 24 frets, with Variax electronics, and also a Nordstrand MM pickup in the sweet spot, and also a P-bass pickup in the traditional spot, ash body and translucent gloss finish in either translucent red, translucent sapphire blue, or translucent teal or emerald green. I'd also want an elongated upper strap horn (I wear my basses at a pretty steep angle), Hipshot Ultralite tuners, Buzz Feiten tuning system, black hardware, high-mass bridge with 19mm spacing... mm-mmm good....

    From George's Music Center, except I'd want trans. teal or trans. red, and a 5-string:

    That would be a '73 Fender Jazz, mint condition, sunburt or cream white, with a rosewood fingerboard, possibly with the pearl block inlays...
    hmmm... nice.... :)

    If I really list all the basses I'd like to own, I guess I'd overwhelm TB database server. :D
     
  13. Right now its a Pavel 5 string With Blue Burst, maybe a Hadara. Other than that, Im gassin for a Modulus Q5 Semihollow with F hole (delicious feel and sound), and a 55-94 with maplel neck.

    I'd love an 8-string Thunderbee, 16mm spacing, birdseye top, macassar fretboard. I'm almost all set to order it, lacking only the $4K or so Fred will want. But other than that, it's mine!

    I'm a Fender guy even without owing an actual Fender, so I'd say a:

    Crafted in Japan Precision and Jazz
    A Precision and jazz from every decade
    American Deluxe versions of both instruments, along with their 5 string counterparts
