    This is a strat... but I photoshopped it real quick (it was only the body painted, rosewood neck, white pickguard)

    I want a precision in this exact look. my god, would that be awesome.

    Killer thread idea. The first and utmost thing I want is a Markbass Tube Little Mark 800. I really like everything I've seen about that amp, can't wait for it to be available in the States.

    By the way I just realized we are in "Basses" forum, but I've cured my bass GAS so I had to put the amp I wanted up. Hopefully that's cool.
  4. I'm waiting for the Fender MIM models with the maple fretboard to come out. I'll be getting a precision for sure and who knows, maybe another jazz.

    33" scale 6 string Ken Lawrence Chamberbrase II with 16.5mm string spacing and 26 frets.....that's the dream for sure.

    Nice to see someone else who digs 16.5 spacing. With all the 19mm guys around here I feel like a freak...

    I really don't have any bass GAS, though I'm almost gassing for a Zon TJ 5 - if I could justify spending that kind of cash, then I'd have GAS for it for sure. But I can't, so I don't...
  7. sadowsky Will Lee bass but can only afford a sx jazz with maple fingerboard (sx sjb 57 vyw)

    c'mon guys, you gotta post some pics!

    and my mom is not a bass. my bass has a volume knob.

  12. HAHA... well played, sir.

    well played.

    Like ole whats-his-face up there, I could use another one or seven basses, but what I really want now is a nice new rig setup.

    I'm too lazy to go searching for pics, sorry. Suffice to say, a nice and powerful head sitting on top of a sweet a55 cab would do me just fine.

  13. An analog synthesizer, with knobs, sliders & stuff like that there. I'm workin' on it...

    Blue with matching headstock, white pearl guard, maple neck/board Sterling! Pretty bass and sounds fantastic.

    Chris Squire's own personal 1964 Rick will do for a start. Toss in something collectible while you're at it, like Gene Simmon's axe bass. As far as attainable stuff...a nice Rick in a retro pastel blue or mint will suffice.

    Hey, you play Doumbek! I don't have it here, it's at a friend's studio, but I have the most beautiful Doumbek....you wouldn't believe it. If I can remember, the next time I go by there I'll take a picture of it.

    Thought I probably won't pull the trigger, I'm GASin' for a '70s style J-bass with blocks and binding. I almost grabbed a Fender '75 RI on impulse, and may yet go that route.
