1978 Gibson "The Ripper"

Holy Crap! I thought they all sounded like garbage until I found this gem. If Gene Simmons had the one I own, I might have really liked Kiss (haha).

I also have a 2001 Fender American Standard "P" Bass that is everything there needs to be.

(I know the exact same message is posted in the "Favorite ax..." thread, but I just had to add it here)

I have, love, and will be buried with a Musicman Stingray 5.

I definitely wouldn't mind complimenting that with a Warwick 5-string bolt-on Corvette and/or a Maple necked 4-string Fender Jazz type bass, though.

All in good time... :evil:
I play guitar now!

Hey Dougieez... Does he have a Lakland or a Lakland Skyline... I've owned about 6 Laklands which are great basses, but for the money you can't go wrong with the Skyline series...

I still like the '76 Fender Jazz that I purchased new from Walter at
U-Crest. This bass bought my house. Thanks Wally!

Hey, I got an Ibanez sr800. It is a pretty nice bass, just not as nice as the others.

Damn straight! I have an NS-2 and NS-5P. Just used the NS-5P (which is the same stain as this pic) on the Heather Mere CD. From bass to Avalon Mic Pre to 1176, add 1.5 dB of 70Hz and Viola! Perfect Tone.

I will never, ever, not gonna do it, part with my NS-2 4 string. Ever.

Thom, that was perhaps the best sounding bass I've ever heard. If this question had been asked before, I might have sided with the J-Bass. Not anymore. :D (Btw, the guitar tones are most excellent as well- Marshall and Bogner stuff, Sennheiser 421's into Neve pres. The tones on this album are ridiculously good!)

Here's an interesting Bass. Musicman "Bongo" bass.
Image
The neck is similar to a Jazz bass neck w/o neck binding, but has 24 frets and active electronics. Plays nice, but I haven't heard it plugged into an SVT yet.
