    I'm very simple.
    My dream would be a Ken Smith BSR-J5. I really liked the anniversary model in the quilted wood with matching headstock. I'd be comlete and not care for anything else.

    Okay...I'm from Denmark....But what is a Stand up bass??...is it a Upright Bass??

    Anyway...My dream bass would be a clone between a Tung and a Jens Ritter Bass...:)
  5. I'm not sure what my dream bass is. I'm still trying to figure that out.:)

    I'd never be happy with just one. But my dream bass would be a Sadowsky Ultra-Vintage 5-string P-bass (an oxymoron, but I don't care).

    The ones I already have or the ones I lust for but have never played. I haven't been able to figure this one out yet. :confused: :D

    Mine would be a DP custom, 35" 5string with mahogany wings, M/W/M neck, Tbird body style with one Bart MM pickup (totally passive....I think). One volume and one tone knob...that's it. Plain...simple and Rockin!

    Either my own Fodera, or a Fodera Emperor II with an Alder body, Walnut top(or maybe redwood burl), flame maple neck through, Ebony fingerboard with Abalone block inlays, and Seymour Duncan dual coils. Wouldn't that be sweet!

    You know, this reminds me. If I ever see one of the 20th Anniv. Smith neck-throughs, 6 string, charcoal quilt redwood, I will be sorely tempted. It was a 5-string version of the same that got me started down the high-end road when it popped up on Ebay a couple years ago.

    There are lots of basses out there that are drool-worthy. But what I'm kicking around right now is the thought of a bolt-on fretted Hanewinckel 6.

    Fodera Matt Garrison Signature with Low B
  15. A 5-string Fender Jazz, black ash body, black pickguard, quilted maple neck with a black finish and matching headstock, maple fretboard with some pimped out block inlays. Nice!

    Laklands, Fenders, Sadowskys.... if they are dream basses, you can imagine what they would be!

    Maybe a Fodera here or there? :D

    I need a good rig more than I need another bass. But, an off rack Surf Green P-Bass with rosewood fretboard and Gold anodized pickguard. Plus a decent bass amp.

    Most of all. The TIME to play and rehearse more.

    I assume you're talking about a Double Bass (there is a forum for those here... you'll find LOTS of people who play there :p)

    I played Double Bass from 8th-12th grade.
