Apologies in advance if this topic had been done before. I'm sure everyone here has played a bass that is, for all intents and purposes, perfect. What was it for you? Did you later come to own this piece of perfection? For me, it would have to be the Fodera Monarch I played at Guitar Center of all places. Each note leapt from the fretboard almost before I plucked the string. After ten minutes with it, I got why these cost so much. If ever there was a "perfect" bass, this was it. If I'm honest, it was almost too perfect.
