    ....not counting any that you own? Sound, feel, all that stuff aside, what's the most visually appealing bass you've seen?

    There's a lot that are close, but mine may be this Benavente singlecut.

    In my opinion a sunburst jazz with a turtoise shell pickguard, dark rosewood fretboard and MOP block inlays is the best looking bass. Oh yeah lets not forget pickup covers and thumbrest. I hate pickup covers if i have to play the bass, aesthtically i love them.
