Your Go To Bass

Recommended Posts

Look, I know these threads are a show-offy, vanity thing, but honestly, if I had to call on one bass that would be the go to, do it all instrument, it's the Lull.  It's a forking monster, even more so since I installed the John East.

Oh I don’t know about that; seems a bit harsh. Yes, there are and will be some boutique type lovelies, but there have already been some cheaper, workaday instruments shared. This isn’t meant to be a porn thread, as far as I can see, it’s meant to be what it says in the title and, yes, some of them will be porn and some may wish to show off but, for the most part, I think folks are sticking with the spirit of it. Nice Lull BTW.

Revelation P bass clone.  Under £200 new, with quality and sound not far off Squier, even Sire.

I have one of these for sale in the local 2nd hand shop. I'm going to bring it back, it's such a great instrument, and I'll have time to play with it over the coming months

Still my £60 pawn shop special. Best neck on any bass I've ever played.

Admittedly it didn't come with the DiMarzios, Schaller bridge, stack knobs or vulgar scratchplate. :)

Ay ay ay. I'm not supposed to like A)Jazz basses or B) maple boards. But this? Yum.

owes me the better part of £250.

My go-to and only bass at the moment (decided to get rid of all the others) is an '04 Musicman Stingray that I bought used for 800€ - it was virtually new, the old owner barely used it in all these years.

Sounds thunderous, funky and precise with great clarity. It's a bit of a beast (~10lb) but it makes up for it in its gorgeous looks and tone. Looks hella great on stage as well if I may say so. 😅

You must've missed my post 😆

Seventy quid for my go to electric and acoustic combined. 

I've even just taken a photo of the exotic beauties. 🙂

Since receiving my custom last month I've not touched another bass.

I'm sure going to miss it whilst it's back with Jon for some tweaks.

For the last 2-3 years, it's been this - one of my collection of mongrel bitsas. A Squier body (stripped and resprayed in rattlecan racing red) a Mexi Jazz neck, a Schaller bridge, one Fender pup, one Entwistle pup, Gotoh machine heads, and a Kiogon toggle switch and loom. It's strung with flats and is a dream to play and incredibly versatile.

Here’s mine. It has some flaws, and it’s not at all versatile, but man, playing it is just so... easy. I love it.

My actual go to bass is this one...

...but the one I probably noodle on round the house most is probably this one...

Check the intonation of the 12 fret marker.  That one was a cm out on mine and Bas Gallery had to 'erase' the old one and make new one

I have 16 basses, including a DB, but always go back to my first love:
Vantage VP710B.
I have 6 of those :)
I have two tuned BEAD, one with flats and the rest are EADG. They are spread over two rehearsealspaces and my home.

My Alpher Cobia has done every gig (apart from the UFO tribute gigs) and practice since I got it, it`s a wonderful thing.

Modulus Flea. It's always out on a stand in the house so I'm always noodling on it!

Absolutely correct interpretation. My original post is aimed at us enjoying the wealth of favourite basses. My Jazz is a good but not expensive instrument.
