    Especially for those who play bass but not guitar....

    Just based on sound rather than playability....
     
  2. Why have Les Paul / SG as the same option? Totally different guitars!

    Love tele's, SG's and LP's :)

    I'm a pretty lousy guitarist, but if I was going to work at it more seriously, I'd want a Les Paul and a Strat. Gas over.

    SG's look really cool, but don't have that much of a distinctive sound, imo. I quite like the sound of Tele's but somehow never wanted one for myself - but one day I will probably treat myself to the two mentioned above.

    I wanted a small number of specific options, so I made the catgories up on the popular pick up configurations.....

    If anyone else wants to suggest a different broad classification of the types of guitars that produce the distinctive broad we can run a different poll.....just realized I have excluded hollow body electrics like rickys.....

    Maybe I should rephrase the question.....

    What do you prefer out of a,b or c kind of thing??

    :)

    What I am getting at is whether bass players prefer one type of guitar sound to another, personally I like the sound of a telecaster - it seems to have it's own space and does n't interfere with the tones of my bass. Relatively easy to mix too.

    Hmmmmm.....

    I'm off now to build some bass traps...

    ....If everyone keeps voting other I'll start another poll with more rigid options...:D
     
  8. Where's the option for "all those sissy instruments sound the same to me"?

    :p

    My brother bought me a Gibson SG. He plays Les Pauls and Strats. if you click on my link it will go to his website he has a few clips of him playing on you tube. Pretty cool web page. :bassist:
     
  12. I've always had a special place in my heart for Kramer guitars. After 1985, they flattened out their fretboard radii and they became amazing players.

    +1. I love the sound of my classical guitar though "classical
    guitar" "me" and "well" don't all belong in the same sentence
    : - )
     
  14. I love my '80's BCR Stealth.

    I also love my Moser Genesis :bassist:
     
  15. I also dig my Partscaster :hyper:
     
  16. We gave my Daughters boyfriend this Moser for Christmas. It's an incredible player and stands taller than most basses :) It suites his height, music and playing perfectly :bassist:

    When I'm playing it the Les Paul can't be beat. That being said when others are playing it I often prefer Strats. Voted Les Paul tho as I'm thinking of getting another, or an ES135.

    For me it's a toss up between the Strat and the LP. I own both an Am. Strat and a LP Studio. I voted Strat for the shear versatility. But I really love the sound of the LP's humbuckers. Especially in a "southern rock" setting, ala Allman Brothers. But if I had to take just one guitar with me on a gig for a variety of tunes I'd opt of the Strat.

    Here I am with the strat on a gig a few weeks ago. Very rarely do I play guitar on a gig...

    Right now the GAS is for a '68-'72 Les Paul Custom. Favorite guitar at the moment is a Gadow Nashville '49. NOTHING else I've played has come so close to that original Esquire sound.
