    What are some basses you'd love to hear or see certain player play? for example:

    Geddy-MM Sting Ray
    Stanley Clarke-MTD 535
    Marcus Miller-Bongo
    Victor Wooten-anything with 5 or 6 strings
    Rohnda Smith(Prince)-Ritter Roya fretless 5

    To be honest, I'd just like to see Geddy play his Jazz and his old Rics. Marcus should stick to his Jazz as well, and Vic should play his Foderas.

    Other than that, I'd like to see me playing a Jerzy Drozd Prodigy 6, but that's a different story.

    Why, exactly, are you asking this? Maybe I just think Marcus would look silly slappin' a Bongo.

    For some reason, I've always wanted to hear what Chris Squire would do/play on an ERB.

    I think Geddy should go back to Wal's.

    Well then, here's a treat, Chris Squire plays Carvin six string basses tuned a full tone down.

    And if you don't believe me look at this picture...

    To dwJazz54, sometimes ya just wonder what it would sound like, y'know ? would Stanley have that "signature sound" without his Alembics?, would it be better? It's just wishful thinking. Personaly, Geddy doesnt HAVE to play jazz basses,he's a great player, how would he sound with something a little more high-end?,would you be shocked? I used to see Louis Johnson with all kinds of basses, yet he sounded the same on most of his records which were great.

    Jaco - JT's doubleneck Conklin (that would settle a few arguments)
    JT - Jaco's bass of doom (that would settle a few arguments)
    Peter Duncan - a Sadowsky and a Fender - oh wait :eek: ;)

    IIRC, Vic played some 5 and 6 made by his luthier and friend, Joe Compito.

    ....oh yeah, Marcus Miller would NOT look stupid slappin' a Bongo, lol. If thats the case,then everyone who owns a Bongo would :rolleyes: The Fender doesnt make Marcus the bassist that he is, HE does.

    Total fanboi of: Fractal Audio, AudiKinesis Cabs, Dingwall basses
    John Entwistle on anything :bawl:
    Steve Harris on an ERB
    JT on a double neck, 7 string URB. :D

  18. I'd like to see Victor Wooten play something like a Stingray or MIM P bass. Something completely uncharacteristic of him. And I second Mark Latimour's suggestion for Jaco with JT's double neck. And whoever said Steve Harris with an ERB, also a neat idea.
  19. Peter Steele + Daisy Rock bass...

    Geddy playing "Hemispheres" on an Ashbory while sitting in an aquarium filled with large frogs, where he is forced to eat gourmet-style frog's legs.
