    My latest bass is always my forever bass! I tend to have about four at any one time. If I had to keep just one it would be the Shuker Jazz which I had made.

    Like many of you I've had many basses including, Alembic, Kenn Smith 6 string, Modulus Quantum 5 (both fretted and fretless), Sadowsky Metro, lots of Fender Jazz & P basses both 4 and 5 string, and on and on. My favorite bass is a 1998 Tobias 5 string unlined fretless and I would never part with it. Sounds amazing and easiest fingering bass I've ever had. Love it!

    The fretmarkers are stickers...they've been on there for over two years, the pickguard is custom made based on the Reverend Thundergun pickguard, and I made a string mute with a piece of foam and red velvet.

    A Fender Roscoe Beck V. The only Fender bass guitar they made too good. iw16fanow1dbi0c9kusc.jpg
  7. You mean the one that I’m selling now, or the one I sold five years ago?

    They’re all “forever” basses until the new one comes along.

    Carvin LB20. Great craftsmanship, light, versatile, easy to play, and just generally wonderful tone. They are so cheap right now on the used market I'm surprised I don't see more around. One of the unknown basses out there that are true gems.

    The gold hardware on a spector is as important as the crown inlays or the curved body. Inseparable imho :)

    I feel you bud. That's why it's your forever bass.

    Regardless, Spectors are fantastic instruments. I have one myself. Easily the most comfortable bass I have.

    Every time I plug it in it’s the sound of the bass on my favorite albums from my late teens/early twenties.
