  5. ...or the qintar.

    Edit: I'd like to answer your question, but none of these brands are/is my 'favorite'. I'm not sure I have a favorite brand. My favorite bass is my Stambaugh- does that help?

    I don't think I have played any brand where I liked every or at least even a majority of their basses. Out of whats up there in the list I'd say: fender, ibanez [old ones] & Ernie Ball.
     
  9. Alembic, you mistakenly left it out of the poll, but I won't hold it against you... ;)

  15. ..he didn't say 'which one do you like best', he said "which is your favorite." How/why would one 'vote' for one's 'favorite'?

    So what's the difference between "your favorite" and "the one you like best"?

  18. ..maybe your favorite is(like mine)a Stambaugh. The brand of bass on the aforementioned list which I like best is Fender. Your 'favorite' & the 'one(of the basses on the list)you like best' can be two different things. I know- picky, picky, picky. But to answer your question, 1 string & $2,000. ;)
     
  19. For funk I love me Ernie Ball SR, but i equally love my frettless warwick and (not my) the fender jazz bass.
