You could have been passing through a local music store and picked it up to try it out. You may have borrowed it from your friend. You may have sold your own soul to obtain it. You may have asked to see it for a moment from a Bass player in a band who was on before you because you loved his tone. No matter what the story is, I want to know, what is the best Bass you ever played in your life? Was it a $1000,000 custom made bass? Was it an ancient relic dripping with mojo from the early 60's? Was it a cheap brand that suprized the crap out of you? Was it an off brand obscure model? Was it a new age space age design? Was it fretless or fretted? I want to know! Call me stupid, but the best bass I ever played was a Dean Dimebag Bass! I play gospel and picked it up at G.C. as a joke just to fool around with it, but it's a pretty awesome bass guitar. I love the neck and the tone is absolutely incredible! I love the feel of this bass and it plays better then my Fender P, and my main Bass which is my Dean Rhaspody. Who would have known this silly little thing played so amazing?!
