    But I have found "my" bass and wouldn't ever need those basses, but I wouldn't mind owning some of those at one time or another.

    At the moment I can't afford any of these and I'm very torn between them.
    Maybe someday.

    Nordstrand SC-5, Benavente SC-5B, Benavente Vortex, or Benavente Vintage Vortex.

    I'd like to have one (or both) of these builders to put together a fretted and fretless neo-'Roscoe Beck 5' with active preamp and active/passive switch. Two volume controls, three band tone controls, and a three-way (parallel, single-coil, series) switch for each dual coil pickup. Possibly an RMC piezo on one or both with its own volume control.

    Would that be cool or what?

    Definitly a Pedulla Hexabuzz. I want one so bad, but its got a pretty hefty price tag.
  10. An MTD 535. I want one. Now.

    well, thanks to the basses i already have, I can barely afford *any* more at this point. The Modulus will have to go byebye to help offset the cost of the Stambaugh I'm ordering, but not until it arrives in several months.

    I can't afford any of them, but my favorite right now (probably because I've played it most recently) is a fretless 5 string Warwick Corvette. That was a lot of fun to play. Next runner up is a fretted version of that same bass.

    I got simple tastes. What can I say?
  13. A Ken Smith 7!! Just a little too heavy (in co$t) for me...

    With a 13-day old son, I couldn't afford a new set of strings let alone a new bass...

    I want a Warwick Thumb (bolt on) but i cant afford it. Hopefully i can by the end of next summer.

    I'm in the same boat.

    I just want something nice...doesn't have to be really expensive...there is a Highway 1 Jazz at a local store...it's calling my name.
