    interesting already TWO Entwistle requests...


    I agree though!

    It's too bad Status had to stop making the Buzzard (which KILLS the Warwick Buzzard)(and John thought so too)

    as far as a slab P, I've even said to the Fender artist rep that if they just made a maple fingerboard version of the Dirnt P it would be dangerously close.
    They could certainly call it a Slab P, even if they can't legally call it an Entwistle model.


    other model I'd like to see:
    The Danko bass
     
  6. John Myungs original musicman stingray he used on when dream and day unite. that thing had sick tone, and by sick, I mean it sounded like some sort of dying animal, but it was cool. He modded it so one pickup went through an effects proccessor and one went clean. gotta love it.

    cliff burton aria
    john entwistle status
    geddy lee wal (yea right)
     
  8. I'd play that one bass that was owned by a bunch a famous people and sounds like God sneezing into a Charmin toilet paper. A bass so awesome, it fits every genre, in fact all those who have played it refuse to play any other bass because everything is just nothign stacks up. Yea. I'd play that bass.

    Geddy Lee's Wal. It's rare, high in quality, and he's not exactly using it much, as I understand . . .
     
  10. +1 on the Berry Oakley and Juan Alderete's basses (ALL OF THEM!!), Justin Chancellor's Wal, John Myung's Tung, and Krist Novoselic's Black Eagle.

    Paul McCartney's Ric 4001 with the Sgt. Pepper artwork.
    I can't understand why they hadn't come up with a model like this. Who's sitting on Ric's Marketing Dpt. chair? They'd sell A TON of these!
     
  13. I think they are already selling enough they don't need marketing.
    they could stick with the exact same products and do perfectly well.
     
  14. +1 on Alderete's basses
