    just out of curiousity whats your favorite bass other than the one you own and why?

    mine is the fodera Victor Wooten with a Buckeye Burl top I'm just a big fan and they are really comfortable to play now I just need about 4 grand of extra cash that I could just spend
     
  2. stingray ... because they sound, feel and look good

    Peavey Cirrus 6 is just so easy to play, and it sounds awesome, if I had money I'd buy it, it fits my needs perefectly!

    EDIT: I forgot my love for the Epiphone Explorer!
     
  4. so you're basically asking, what's the next bass you'd like to get?

    for me, an MIA p-bass. preferably black with maple fingerboard.

    I already have all of my picks except for a five string P Bass. If you want to know what they are, look at my profile.
     
  8. I'd certainly like to have a Conklin GT-7. It's inexpensive and fun to piddle around with. That's the one that's attainable. My unattainable pick would have to be a ceruse finish F Bass BN6 with an ebony fretboard.

    Right now... Celinder J Update. If I could make it sound anything close to the sound clips I've heard, it's one awesome-sounding J. And I am a big fan of J-style basses. An F-bass wouldn't hurt either.

    I also like the Bebensee's. But the Jerzy's are also cool. It's a tough choice since I've never actually played either. Regardless, I like these fancy "art" basses. Perhaps I should be more practical, but as long as I'm juist dreaming, practicality has no place.

    For me it has always been a Warwick SS II. However, a couple weeks ago at the GC in Boston, I played a used F Bass BN5 (its gone now).....very nice. So now I would say it is a tie between the two.

    For the combination of look, feel and tone, I can't seem to find something I like better than a Ken Smith.

    I may ultimately end up cashing in a couple of basses to get the several Gs I would need for a neckthrough.

    But I am still far from crossing that bridge.

    I love my 4 string Fodera J but right now I think I'd really like to have a Pedulla Pentabuzz. Love that mwah!!! (also that's the one I've played most recently :) ) That would meet my desire for 5 string and fretless all-in-one.

  20. Curiously, since I got my Peavey Cirrus 5, I haven't been GASsin' at all for anything else. That will likely change down the road, but right now it suits me perfectly.

    Maybe one day a Stingray 5... one day...
