What Do YOU Play?

Recommended Posts

Goodness me - only allowed [i]one[/i] choice?
Today's rehearsal I'll be using OLP 5 string. Monday (different band) I'll choose either the Aria semi ac, the musicman or the Shaftesburybacker. In the studio the Ariapro2 , bass lessons I carry around my Thunder 1.
The fun of collecting basses is choosing which one to use - surely!

I voted Lakland because these days it's usually

Lakland Daryl Jones 5-string with J-Retro
and
Lakland Duck Dunn

but if I'm feeling Fenderish it could be

'96 50th Japanese Jazz with J-Retro
or
'78 Precision with A-neck

or if it's a Musicman day it might be

'80 pre-EB Stingray
or
'03 Stingray 5 with Status neck, Nordstrand pick-up and East electronics.

or it might just be

'05 Status Stealth 5

It all depends on what mood I'm in and whether its a gig or a jam.

Yes I'm spoilt for choice but I've worked over 40 years to get here.

Well I voted Rickenbacker as I just love the tone of my 4003 but I also occasionally play the following:

a fretless Warwick
two Yamahas
a customised Ibanez
plus a couple of others


[quote name='martthebass' post='1678' date='May 18 2007, 06:27 PM']Voted Warwick but could easily have put Musicman in equal measure. Every bass collection needs at least one of each.[/quote]

Not got a Musicman or any money left so that will have to wait :)

Believe me there's only one that cost over £400 and it's taken me since 1984 to assemble a really quite modest selection.
Mind you being on these fora doesn't help does it? I want a new bass every day visiting here.

sorry to go off on a tangent but...

sorry NAS but what is with those f holes.

ok on a vintage archtop it looks good

cut into the side of a p just looks a bit silly dont you think.

looks aside how does it sound?

Other- Peavey Milestone III. Cheap as chips but it has served me well as my only bass guitar for over 6 years, and has seen much action. Solid like a rock :)

Ernie Ball Musicman StingRay 3EQ (maple neck) - so versatile!

Bit suprised that EB are doing so poorly in the poll.

I'm very fortunate to have more than 1 bass as well.

My Sei 7 is my current fave, but I do pick up my Fender Urge Mk1 a lot as well. I'm selling one bass and have bought another which is [b]totally[/b][i][/i] different to the Sei....

None of the above.

No category for ancient JapCrap, for shame!

Don't really have a "main" bass, but my CSL custom Jazz probably gets the most use - it feels more "right" than any bass I've played.

+1 one for MB1's best of British... My Status KingBass Artist is the one, although the Warwick is kinda taking over at the moment! See list on signature :)

Squier Vintage Modified 70's Jazz Bass


I love it, super low action, great slap tone, mudds up nicely with distortion and a think it looks a beaut. Just a tad heavy.

I say a tad.


Its a boat anchor.
