    There have been quite a few threads lately asking which bass is best. From now on, please refrain from posting threads like this.

    For one, you are going to get different answers from everyone. I will tell you that the Peavey Cirrus is the best, because I have one. Or that a Modulus Quantum is the best, because I really want one, and think that they are the best basses, FOR ME. Mr. Dead will vote for Spectors, JT will vote for Conklins, and so on and so forth.

    If you want to know specifics about which bass can nail a tone better than the other, or which bass balances better, or any other SPECIFIC comparison between 2 or more basses, that is great. Feel free to post threads like that. Just don't post a thread simply asking "Which bass do you guys think is best?" It is a rather pointless topic, it's been done WAY too many times, and these threads will be closed down in the future.

    And also, use the Search button, located at the top of the screen. There are loads of information available already, you just have to take the time to look.;)

    My bass is better than yours, Ryan! ;) :D

    I agree, though... Those threads are certainly trivial, and can easily turn into a pissing contest.

    You're absolutely right. The best bass is the one YOU think is best for YOU!
    Easy enough!

    that is right, beefbass. That is why these threads are so pointless.

    *quick looks at Crawling Eye's profile because he forgot what Crawling Eye even plays*;)

  6. Words of wisdom.
    The more duplicated threads we create, the more bandwidth we use up, and the more $ it costs. So, we need more supporting members.
























    Looks around to see if anyone realises I'm not a supporting member :D

    Unless this thread is bumped until the sun goes supernova (or Armageddon etc) new members will be asking bestbass questions blissfully unaware how tiring it is to some TBers.

    My suggestion is to post a FAQ type must read thread and float it at the top. I suggested that a certain moderator do this with threads entitled 'metronomes, fretless, multistringers and dogma' and look what happened to him.

    I personally like posting "Musicman Stingray 5" every other day.

    The "Best Bass", is available in 4, 5, and 6 string versions. a fretless version of the "Best Bass" will be available in March. A limited edition "John Turner" triple neck 27 string is also planned for later this year.

    You are of course wrong. I have a mint Pre-fgenius B bass in sunburst. The new ones suck.

    It may be hard, but resist the urge to think your bass is best.
    Just accept that my bass is better than yours.

    ...as for you, JT?!
    Pshhh, my bass could take yours without a volume knob!

    :D :p ;) :D
