^ There's a Wal I wouldn't mind owning, they normally look like coffee tables!

The last Wal I owned, the guy selling it to me had been given it for free by Ian Waller who liked his playing, and when he brought it into the rehearsal room ahead of going on tour, the band told him that he wasn't allowed to bring it because they didn't want "a f#cking sideboard" on stage. 

So he painted over the gorgeous bookmatched Shedua, and when he sold it to me it was solid black

Xotic are rather special basses, especially the XB2

Here are my favourite designs and the most ergonomically basses I've ever played.

Ibanez AFR, designed by Rolf Spuler :

As part of my astrophotography hobby, I have software that takes multiple images and averages them together to bring out faint details and hidden shapes. You can then apply techniques like deconvolution and contrast enhancement to achieve a striking but accurate image.

I thought I'd try applying this technology here, so I've fed in all of your different favourite basses, and this is the result:

Actually just remembered, Peavey have produced  a couple of gasworthy beasts, not least

Which just goes to show, as I think these Peaveys are hideous.😁

But then I love these, easily my favourites along with Rics and TBirds....the first is my old Sei Flamboyant which now belongs to another BCer and which I’d have back if I could.

The production version of the Fly Bass is probably the most uncomfortable instrument I've ever had the misfortune to play. 

Which is a pity as the original guitar version is a fantastic instrument.

Did you have a problem with the rear of the upper horn digging into your ribs? I did.

I don’t like solid colour Wals, they just look wrong to me.

See. That’s something that is. Still think it’d be too heavy...

And it's a P Bass and thus against the principle of this thread.

Two PUPs, neither in the classic place, plus Jazz neck. Not a true Precision

I'm also in love with this Alembic Spoiler 32 inches with a full size body :

Yes! I was about to add a Sei Bass and @4000 beat me to it. :)
However, I always fancied the 6-string so will just add this to the mix as well...

I imagine @stewblack is still kicking himself for handing that over for a pittance!

Yes. I am the worst person at wheeling and dealing. I sell low buy high. I miss every bass I've ever sold.

Yep, it makes no sense. I think you're a splendid person in any and every way imaginable, but these pictures make my tummy hurt.
