    What bass would you refuse to accept, even if they offered you money to take it?

    For me, it'd be that said, "Hondo" on the headstock. In fact, I don't think I'd even open the door for the delivery man.

    The only acceptable answer is ... The Fad novelty Fish one that sang songs..."Billy Bass???"

    Every one else on this site would accept the "Hello Kitty, Daisy Rock, ABB" with a smile from the UPS guy and sell it! :>

    Mark Hoppus Jazz Bass and Pete Wentz Precision Bass from the Squier Signature Series

    I'd die before I willingly touch anything with either of those 2 names on it. :smug:

  19. All of those weird basses that the older bass players (no offense) seem to like. With the disgusting body shape, or anything like that.

    I have a couple:

    Ibanez IceMan
    Mark Hoppus, Mike Dirnt, Pete Wentz precision basses
    any Rogue bass
    most Dean basses (except for the Rhapsody 8 and 12)

    I also wouldn't accept any single course bass with more than six strings.

    I almost forgot, BC Rich is on my list.
