  7. i have way to many basses.

    lately i have been spending alot of time with a warwick 4 thumb bolt on and a musicvox 12.

    but the bass i will always love and rate others by is my pedulla 4 buzz.

    I don't have one favorite. My favorites would be (in no particular order:


    84 Tobias 5 string: unique sound, great B.
    78 Tobias 4 string: After 20 years I still don't think I play up to the capabilities of this bass.
    78 Fender Jazz: If you could hear this bass in the mix live;)
    97 Fender MIA JD5: If you could hear this bass in the mix live;)
    Clover Bass Tard 5: If you could hear this bass in the mix live;)...also best B string.
    81 G&L L2000E: ridiculous dynamic range and versatility
    Zon Legacy Standard fretless 5: Still the best fretless I've ever played (and not 'cause I haven't looked around ;))

    Honorable mention (don't own one) - Linc Luthier Madagascar Ebony/Purpleheart/ Walnut 4 string: playability on par with my 78 Tobias, the best soloed bridge pickup sound I've heard so far.

    These all do something (or many things) better than other basses I've owned/played.
