    The title says it all...:cool:
  2. I'm going with Ibby SR, but a Lecompte STSS, Garz Cobra or Skjold Slayer are really cool looking, and out of my price point.
  3. Aesthetically, T-Bird. Functionally, P's fit me best
  4. does a Rickenbacker 4003 count? I know it's not quite 34'' but....

    Fender Precision. My favorite production model 4-string bass by a long shot.

    Purely on visuals - Fender Jaguar, but as far as comfort and playability - any NS Spector body style.
  7. Spector ReBop4. The USA bolt-on necks are great, too, but I really like the fully carved and curved NS body of the ReBops.

    P-bass. with a nod going to the G&L L-series.
  9. Jazz on looks (and feel to some extent) but P on feel alone.

    I love the P shape. I've had a couple of Jazz Basses, but I like to use A frame stands, and a J is difficult to get to sit straight on one. Since I greatly prefer the sound of the P, that's an easy choice.

  12. I only own a Jazz and a P at the moment, and shape wise(comfort and looks) I love them both. Too close for me to call.

    No experience with any of the others yet.

    unless a mod comes in and locks it, thread NOT over.
  17. It's also not a bolt on!

    My vote is for jazz bass. I just love that sexy shape!

    I love my P-Basses but I also love the TBird shape(s). They are so cool.
