    Probably the easiest Bass to play standing up.

    Only 16 more hours!

    The only things I want that I don't have is a sunburst AmStd Precision from this year or last, and a Hofner Club Icon.

  9. EXACTLY! You are describing the exact bass that my teacher used to have and got me into Pedulla GASsing. Penta buzz is a fiver though. 62 jazz, pref 3 tone, stanley's alembic with the dragons inlayed across the fretboard, something like moser's arachnid, but to my specs all these are nice.

    In a dream world my number one is this custom Wal made late in their lifespan with 4 sections in each fret, one per string, some kind of midi thing. Don't know the specifics, but I'd take it over anything just because its the coolest thing ever.

    White with black pickgaurd 08 Fender P... I'm at the point where I need a Pro level instrument. I've played a few of these and I really like them over the active pickup counterparts. Right now my main player is a 90s squire I got for my 12th birthday as my first bass. It sounds very good but not quite as refined as it could be. I'm confident in it and my others as far as reliability and keeping up in the mix but they just aren't the standard of standards universal bass that I'm in need of right now....

    Just wish I wasn't broke as hell

    I'm weird.

    (Actually I already own the best bass suited for me, all else is just adding to the collection.)

    I'd like a marleaux sopran bass

    Marleaux make some of the very best basses I have come across, and sopran would be an excellent addition to my small arsenal!!

    Take it from me, they sound bloody good too.
  19. Been saving up for a 5-String Dingwall Combustion when they come out in April/May. That'll set me for bass GAS for a while... after that, I'll be saving up for a real rig, something I can actually play out with... I'm currently looking at:

    1) GK MB2 500
    2) 2x10 cab, probably GK, but mostly looking for something not too heavy (don't have any roadies available, and my better half has a really, really bad back...)
