What car is your bass


Recommended Posts

Whilst driving home this afternoon I saw a fiat 500 that reminded me of a short scale stingray. Small, light coloured, nippy around town I guess (not having driven either). 

It got me thinking about what car would represent your bass? Is a P bass a lean sports car or a utilitarian people carrier? Is a jazz an SUV or a saloon? 

Bearing in mind I know very little about cars (and not much more about basses), what bass are you driving?

Hofner Verithin bass, so an Armstrong Siddeley Star Sapphire (My Dad had one just like this for quite a while...)...

Many many moons ago, my dear old Gran re-married a geyzer from Norfolk, he had one of them too! Always knew him as Lord Bacon-Phillips, but no idea if that was anywhere near right 🤣 but can remember travelling in style in it some times.

Also - later in my younger days, we rented our garage to a lovely old chap around the corner, he also had a Armstrong Sidley, which he kept in the garage, occasionaly taking me for a ride, remember washing it with him.I must have been about 10 or 11, he taught me to play Chess 'properly' too!

Alpine is as french as my Vigier Passion. Another option could be a Renault 5 Turbo. Small, special, and light.

Modulus Genesis could be Vette: both have fiber construction.

Affirma is different, so is boxer Subaru and Wankel Mazda (RX-family).

Hand built super light fretless... be it a Super Seven.

Every bitsa is like any DIY glass fibre replica. But not a Ford Fiasco, no?

Clevinger... a ten wheel Peterbilt without a trailer, maybe?

Given that all of mine are Bitsa basses mine would have to be a kit-car of some kind, nothing flashy mind, all ‘utility vehicle’ sort of thing.

Like this..?

Yes, other modes of transport definitely welcome!

Maybe I should start a parallel thread: what car is your bass playing style. I'm still on the training wheels/tricycle stage I think..

More of the latter, not so much of the former, I’m a pragmatist.

Ric's are known as being the Harley's of the bass world.

Surely the Precision is a trusty Volvo with an old faithful Labrador in the back

Ha! I always think a P is like a Volvo estate too, trusty and like a bit of a boat but always gets the job done.
