    G&L L-2000 &/or L-2500. Music Man's are great basses also. The playability, feel & quality of the G&L's & MusicMan's are very EXCELLENT. I'm just not into how they sound of MusicMan basses too much.

    Fender, of course.
     
  4. I like Yamaha's BB and TRB series, my next bass will probably be a fretless BB of some kind. Also, the eighties Squiers I've tried are sweet.

    i guess warwicks count now, right?


    i don't think theres any other mass produced bass that can touch the neck-thru warwicks.
     
  6. Maybe you're right. The bolt ons aren't that bad either, BTW.

    Peavey Cirrus!! My Cirrus instruments completely smoke the Warwicks and Roscoes that I used to own in build quality, sound and comfort. Everybody has their personal tastes ; for me it's all Cirrus all the time!

    Rickenbacker, all the way. With a special mention for 4001 series, either standard or "V63".

    And also a very special mention for the 4001CS (Chris Squire signature).

    All the best,
