1 - 'P' type
2 - 'J' type
3 - 'M' type
4 - 'R' type
5 - 'S' type
6 - Hollow-bodied

Nope. :rolleyes:

Well worth a look and some very interesting stuff on there. It's nicely researched and laid out, enough info to be interesting, not enough to be boring. My top 100 would be very different but I bet everyone could say that!

My list would be more like 20, and the only ones I haven't managed to try yet are an Alembic EUB 1, a Rivoli (pref Chas Chandler's), one of those cute little Warwick s-s Corvettes, and (bizarrely, as I love 'em and have had lots of opportunities) a Ricky 4001.

I was a little underwhelmed by large portions of the list, you put a musicvox 12 but not a Hamer 12 string in there?
No vintage Jazz?
No JV Squier
No Sandberg
No Tacoma Thunderchief
No BC Rich

It's a difficult job I know, but some big omissions

I'm afraid I'm filing this in the Yet Another Pointless List section.

I think I'd be more interested if Scott came up with a list of 100 Songs To Play Before You Die.

Nah, 20 would be different versions of MustHangSally, 10 Moondance etc.

I'm sure they all sound like basses at the end of the day. What counts is the setup and the player.

It's all in the fingers surely 😀

'100 basses some guy wants to try'

Filed alongside his '5 reasons NOT to play a five string (which is actually a video mostly focusing on why the bassist uses a five string)'

Next week: you will never to be able to guess what these 1990s alt-rock bassists look like now! (number 6 will SHOCK you...)

Surely, even when you count the custom shop, there aren't 100 different colour options for a PBass.

This will be followed by 'One weird trick to play like a pro' which you click on eager to learn and find the weird trick is... [SPOILER ALERT - LOOK AWAY NOW IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW]... to practice for three hours a day for the next ten years!

That list is the most pointless one like it I have seen. He has included random custom order instruments as Vintage and collectable??? Just bizarre, I don't know who he is trying to appeal to with this list. Its honestly like they are all random choices.

There'd better be a Wal in there :ph34r:

There is, of course. Just a shame that EVERY SINGLE THING about the Wal Mk 1 entry is wrong... including the photo!!! D'oh!!!

Unfortunately in an effort to get more subscribers, it's just more click-bait.

To be fair, they have been producing 2x videos per week since the beginning of time....must be running out of topics....

I thought his Precision v Jazz one was pretty tentative. There was a slight difference but nothing a bit of tone tweaking wouldn't sort.


:ph34r: Adjourns to specially strengthened Fenderista-proof bunker :ph34r:

Yeh, its so much easier to do those with guitars, you can just list all the historic recreation models of the Strat and Les paul!

That was the whole point of the "best bass lines ever" thread :)

I've probably only played a dozen Rics, so still 88 to go...

Lol! I think Woodinblack and clivem would say the same thing about Ibbys...

Don't get me started on "bass education without boundaries"...... <cough>
Not even looked to see if he has included any Ibby's in his "guide".
