To try giving an habit answer, for the thread “Bass guitar = Fender bass”
Jack, I'd love to answer,but what's happened, you see...the string in my leg is gone.
Up until recently I would have said Fender Precision. But a bad back has caused me to switch to an extra short scale Ibanez Mikro. It has a P pickup that I swapped for a Dimarzio Model P and it sounds great like a P should, but is the size of a Strat. My back loves it. I've played two gigs this weekend and another tomorrow, I would be hurting badly right now with a long scale bass. Not a good picture, but this was last night.
Typically a Stingray 5
I simply can't get over the thick twang and playability of shortscale basses, coming from previously playing a 35' scale for most of my playing.
I don't think I'm going back to 34'+ ever, unless were talking multiscale.

I really want a Mikro and some shorties but I'm afraid they'll sway me from my standards...
I'm in love with my new #1 the Peavey Zodiac BXP it's got all I want. the neck is really comfortable, slim and fast yet still gives a little bit of fight plus the old classic BIG sounds are what I dig. light, slim, and sexy as hell, I need a 2nd for flats, and maybe more with rosewood boards. they're that sweet, and dirt cheap.
If this is the one you mean,
then I think you are simply mistaken about that OP's intent. As written, that post is a reasonable and cogent inquiry. I myself am old enough to remember the last remnants of the "Fender bass" usage at large, so I understood why they would ask.
Crossing out the word "troll" in your post does not conceal your hostility. It isn't even thinly veiled.
If you want to know what players' main bass is, why not just ask? No need to use the question as a pretext for denigrating someone else's thread.
I voted 'Small Production Bass' for my Epiphone Rumblekat.
As the poll shows so far at this moment, it appears that 13 out of 22 times using the term Fender Bass about any given electric bass guitar you would be wrong.
9 out of 22 times you would be correct though.
Using the term Fender Bass about all electric bass guitars might not be the wisest seen from a gambling perspective, but it shows you are willing to take risks and go against the odds for the chance of a higher payout in the end.
Personality: You are a bit of a rebel, living for the moment.

I had been mostly using a Hofner Ignition Club bass for the last few years. I had worked with several others but I kept going back to the Hofner.
However, last week I completed the resurrection an old Silvertone Model 1444 by Danelectro and I've switched to that. It took me about 40 years since I bought the 1444 in pieces to get it done, but now I can't stop playing it. It looks like this one will unseat the Hofner as my #1.
Fender jazz. Medium scale.
You are right. I have fixed my first message that may be displaced and would harm (even if it wasn't my intention).
I was not conscious of the cultural differences between “troll” in french and in english.
Waiting for the StingRay option in the poll.
I didn't see the (clone) part, so I put other
My #1 at the moment is a Sire V7 4 string Alder/Rosewood J-Bass
A beautiful bass in all areas of concern
