What kind of BASS do YOU want?!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by AsaBass-A, Aug 30, 2003.

  1. I have been looking at Carl Thompson Custom Basses. I just fell in love with the look of the basses and the sound that they produce (Les Claypool and Stanley Clark use(d) these basses) Check this baby out though!
  2. Did I mention I love that bass and all Carl Thompson Basses?!??!?!


    *cough* *cough*

    A bass that looks good, sounds great, plays effortlessly and weighs nothing. Details don't really matter.

    A bass that automatically corrects errors in fretting, timing, and chord compatibility.

    If that ain't available, I'll consider a Jerzy Drozd.
