    If i could have my own signiture bass, it would be made by Carvin, based on the LB76 cos i love 6strings. a cool neck inlay in the traditionof John Myung would be nice....piezo pickups + two of those active humbuckers. 4 band eq onboard.

    now for a preamp, two channels, like the mesa boogie m2000 but better, and actual tube channel + SS.

    some sort of 2000 watt power amp

    2x15 and 2x12+4x8 cab. like this

    Welcome to TalkBass! The "dream rig" theme has been batted around here before, but not for a while.

    If you get the Carvin alnico humbuckers, you'd better like the sound of people with late stage emphysema sitting under aluminum trash cans.

    My "signature" bass is in process at the luthier's.

    As for an amp, a customized job from Time Electronics, based on Aguilar designs, would keep me from looking at catalogs for a while......especially since I'd be too busy smuggling white slaves into Third World countries so I could afford it.

    I would have two signature basses. The first would be a fretless jazz of extremely fine fit and finish, fretless, with the pickups wired in series to cancel hum. Standard passive electronics. The second bass would be a fretted 6 string. It would have 28 frets, two pickups and no electronics save a blend pot and an output jack. Single cutaway design, of course. 35" scale. 2" at the nut, full spacing at the bridge.

    These basses would run into a volume pedal and an outboard preamp of some kind.

    The rig would consist of a walter woods head of about 500-700 watts with an old ADA MB1 for effercts and reverb etc. THe bottom of my stack would be Bag End 18s run though the ELF processor. THe upper end of the stack would be Ephifani 10s or 12s. At least four, if not eight.

    Or at least that is what my dream consists of today.
