    Yesterday, when a TB'er posted on a new BB415 bass, said I would like to have one. I still would like one, but I also would love to get my hands on old BB2000 or BB3000 that is in excellent condition. I also would love a Rickenbacker 4000 (single pup) because that model was my first pro-level bass.
    Finally, I would love to find another five string Alembic like I had in the early 1990's. Anybody else have an older model that they would love to get?

  3. Pre-CBS Fenders... :D

    Actually, a nice Japanese Fender reissue from the 80s would suffice. They aren't easy to find around here, they just pop up once in a while. Good basses.

  7. Agreed on the BB3000 !! Would like it if they brought back the Jackson Kip Winger. I've got one in lacewood and I love it. Or a bass version of the original PC archtop. Jackson made one special for Dusty Hill but never put it into production !!

    Play on Dudes !!

    +1. A pre-CBS Jazz Bass in mint condition with all of its original accesories (thumb rests, pickup and bridge metal covers...). I guess the grin is because they're practically impossible to find or damn expensive? (An utopian wish?)
  12. Warwicks with wenge neck.

    Edit: It would also be nice if they were constructed by people who were awake & sober. ;)

    I know there were the MIJ re-issues a few years back, but I'd really like to own an origional early sixties Fender Bass VI. I also know that Fender have a new Jag guitar thats alot like the bass vi, but without some bits on it.

    Something like this would make me a happy chappy:


    As I said before, I don't want one of the new Jag Baritones, I want an origional with the vintage trem.......... bad tuning stability and all :smug:

    Ibanez Roadster or a Reverend Rumblefish. I had the latter and I truly regret selling it to this day.

    Pre-EB Stingray. I had the action set so low on mine (without any perceivable buzz) it was a thing of beauty. My new one's nice (2004), but it's not the same in terms of tone and ease of play.
