    If money was no object then what bass would you get? Personally I would buy a custom Alembic JE Exploiter.

    A Wal double neck! I could play on that thing for hours! Geddy Lee colour scheme, obviously!

    Probably a 60's Fender Jazz. A real one, not the RI.

    Spector NS2 in Black Stain.
  9. 2 or 3 more Stambaughs, a 60s Thunderbird, an old Jazz & a couple of amps. And the biggest, most knob & slider-encrusted arcahic old analog synthesizer known to man.

    I'd just have a fretless and fretted made-copying my current bass with minor alterations to the original.

    Either a real 64 Jazz or my old 69 Gibson EB-1. Had both back in the day and of course I sold both for little or nothing.:scowl:

    Say what?!

    Stryker is the name Warwick gave to their Alembic EXPLOITER rip off :eyebrow:
  18. Probably a Wal or an early Alembic. Then a Sadowsky and an early Fender Jazz.

    Stuart zenders' new warwick custom...but with a natural oil finish, zebrano top and a selectable coil MM bridge p/up instead of the jazz. And off with those inlays and in with some orange LEDs.

    Maybe a flamed maple fretboard...Got one on my current bass and it's smoooooooooth
  20. I would either a) self make b) Carl Thompson build or c) Ritter Roya custom build an 8 string LH bass. Made out of blond mahogany w/ matching head stock. Ebony fretboard (ivory block inlays) gold Hipshot hardware, custom EMG pickups. 24 frets, 34 inch scale. Nuff said. Now to find the wood, and enough 100 year old Ivory to get the job done. BTW 20,000 year old mammoth bone would make a good nut. ;-p Cheers.
