    If this has been done...sorry I tried searching for it....

    Here's the game it's easy:

    1. Name a bass player you like & what band they play in.
    2. Let us know what bass they like to play and/or how they get there sound.
    3. Post a pic? Or whatever!

    have fun!

    i know i probably sound like another fan boy but I love Justin Chancellor, i love his rig his Wal MkII bass, his band, his tone, that his name is Justin Gunnar Walter Chancellor, and that hes the quiet little english guy in a very outspoken band. Other than him probably Jeff Ament, and what doesn't that guy play?

    Got several fave bassists. A main one from my fave metal genre is Vortex and his BC Rich NJ 5 string warlock bass. A fave from hard rock would be Lemmy of Moterhead and his modified Rickenbacker.

  15. Ok.... so he's not the greatest bass player, but...


    Paul McGuigan (aka Guigsy) from Oasis. So he's not the greatest bass player (but he doesn't suck either) I LOVE his basses. Fender Telecaster basses, not sure where he got 'em from.
