    I have been playing bass for about 8 years now. I currently only play Warwicks, and usually only warwick corvette pro 4 strings. That is my bass to practice/perform/record I love it. The tone is amazing and the playability rocks. Live I go crazy swing around jump around wing them around in the air, and it has never let me down... Well other than replacing the input jacks. I have played alot of others, fenders, peaveys, EB's, tobias, warrior, gibson, ibanez, list goes on, but by far warwick is my thing.

    Believe it or not, i've been to NAMM (winter), 2 times, but I still haven't played a whole lot of basses. I didn't really know all of the good brands until I started browsing here 4 hours daily :):). But the ones that I like a whole lot, are my Ibanez SR3005 (esol Presige), and Warwicks a lot. The Warwicks are hella nice... But again, I havn't played very many high quality brands like Carl Thompson stuff...
    If I could have any brand, it would be my Ibanez, or a Warwick... That's all I really like SO FAR...

    I choose Fender for the following reasons:

    • their sound is definitive, both live and in the studio (yeah, I do that)
    • their classic good looks never appear dated
    • the aftermarket parts industry could rival a small third world country in terms of financial worth
    • there's a Fender branded bass for virtually any budget.

    I like the brass band from the Polish National Home on 49th St. in Plainfield. The Newark Salvation Army band is a close second. :D

    I don't have a favorite bass brand. Some basses I like, some I don't. The only bass that I own more than 1 of the same brand is SX!

    Might as well ask what is my food of choice. As much as I love sushi, I wouldn't want to eat it all the time!

    This one (Elrick):

    It's not my best sounding bass, maybe not my best looking, but it fits me like a glove, weighs 8.2 lbs, is versatile,and if I only had one bass, this would be it.
