    This is just a short one here. If we compare bass guitars like we compare athletes what bass guitar would be considered the G.O.A.T

    What's the best color? The prettiest flower?

    Your question is meaningless.

    It's always a meaningless thing to call something or someone the goat. I'm just asking for fun. If you don't have any input. Carry on.

  13. It won't exist until Tom Brady decides to build basses. From your list, I went with the Precision.

    I actually think this is a relevant question. I voted Fender P. While not the first electric bass, it's the basic concept that all others followed. Couple that all of the recordings and performances that the P has been front and center, it has the most Super Bowl trophies in the trophy case.

    That all being said, I currently do not own a P. I find the J concept works better for me.

    That is like saying the F150 is the greatest vehicle of all time.

    An opinion, yes but not necesarilly an unasailable one.

    When you are almost the only game in town, not hard to show up on many recordings.

    I don't own an L-2000 but it think I see more love for that instrument on TB than any other. Supposedly it can do anything... even fill in for you at work when you're sick, do laundry or drop your kids off at school. Very versatile.
