    So imagine you're playing bass, then $#!+ are those zombies?

    You're facing a whole horde what's your ideal bass to smash these zombies?

    Would you use your prized bass?

    I think I would use like a BC rich warlock purely for its shape. It's heavy but the end is V shaped so if I need to pin down a zombie or push them back that V will trap them or the points can really do a number. Personally not a bc rich fan no disrespect but I will become their biggest fan in a zombie apocalypse.

    Yes I would use my prized bass it's an apocalypse and I will be looting guitar center.....once I reach there it's a musicians battle.

    My epiphone les Paul's. Not a real elegant weapon but a pretty effective war hammer.

    Yes that's the right thing to do but say your out of ammo you drop your guns and your cornered next to a bass. You have no choice what's the bass you will use to bludgeon these zombies....we can't make it that easy but I see you're prepared for an apocalypse.

    +1 for fender they're are tough as hell that was one of the contenders for me.

    I'd use my Hoppus P. 1 knob, 1 pick up...... It's the ideal warclub.

    That's bad cause i like semi-hollows. They would shatter in an instant and wouldnt do much damage.

    I'd probably use any bass i hate the looks of i can find. Since i hate the look of 95% of basses, that would be easy. Bring me all your wood grain color wildly asymetrical custom made please....

    wat bass/es do u have milk?
  11. Many years ago, I walked into my house along with a girl I was dating. Suddenly we heard a crashing noise from the bedroom...huh?? at the time I lived alone with no pets. Intruder? No idea, and since my guns were stashed in the bedroom, I grabbed the nearest "weapon" handy--my P-bass.

    With the girl's fingers digging deep into my arm, and me clutching the bass by the neck like a baseball bat, we carefully inched into the bedroom....and found nobody!

    I can't remember what we finally figured out it was, something fell over perhaps. But I do remember grabbing that P-bass ready to bash the heck out of somebody.

    Yea I'd use my Ruger SR40C.... Once I'm outta ammo I'd just use my guitar player's strat..... Fin.....
  13. But didn't Mythbusters determine that if you were swarmed by zombies, even a semiauto couldn't kill them off fast enough?

    I betcha a Bootsy Collins star-shaped bass would do the job nicely.

    Shooting Zombies woulnd't work. They're already dead! Smaking 'em with a P-Bass would work, because it would blast them into little pieces. One more thing the P-Bass is good at that nothing else can do. I don't hit my P-Bass with a hammer, because it would hurt the hammer. It is the Chuck Norris of basses.

    Massive head injury required. A T-40 ought to do the trick.

    A T-40 is the obvious answer, but I don't own one. My Tele bass has some serious weight to it though.

    ...which gives me a great idea.

    "Honey, I need to buy this bass (T-40) in case there is a zombie apocalypse".
