    I only have experience of 1 2 4 and 5, and as I play a Warwick Corvette, i'll have to go with numero dos.

    "burg" spelled backwards is "grub".

    Of the ones you listed, EBMM. You gotta respect a company that can, with a straight face, give us a bass that manages to look like a toilet seat and be cool all at the same time.

    I don't own one at the moment but it's the best bass I've ever played. :meh:

    Of the choices provided .... Fender.

    Then probably Spector and Warwick, although I personally don't care for either of them, they are extremely professional bass lines. Ibanez would be next in line, I have a little experience with them .... the SRX series was/is pretty decent.

    I know little to nothing about EB or Schector ........

    Out of that list, Fender and Ernie Ball are the only two I have any real affinity for.
  11. My personal favorites: Fender, Music Man, Ibanez and Carvin.

    Since Fender basses (particularly Jazzes or their clones) give me what I'm looking for I gotta vote Fender. After that I would have to say EB and maybe the Sterling. No real experience with the other brands because I get what I want from Fender. Leo got it right (IMO).
  14. While I love my fivers (Lakland and Lull), if I could only have one bass form any manufacturer it would be a Fender - simply the first and last word on basses IMO - oh yeah, make it a P bass at that! :D

    Of what you've listed, old Ibanez would be my pick. My Musician and Roadster (RS824) are great.
    Alembic and Status would be my overall faves.
