    I don't mean to be ostentatious**, but I simply don't have a #1. I rotate through the following basses at gigs, depending on which band I'm performing with, my mood, my stage clothing, and/or the phase of the moon (some of these variables could be related...)

    Fender Roscoe Beck V
    MTD 535
    Modulus Quantum 5
    Lull P5
    Warwick Streamer Stage I 5




    **Note that this selection is rather meager compared to others here at TB. :)
     
  4. Stingray. Love the sound and the feel.
