This past spring I got to hold, play and try not to drool over a very expensive Alembic bass that was equal in value to my mortgage for half a year. Yes it was gorgeous and yes it sounded might fine through the Phil Jones rig they had in the store.

a 2009 Ibanez SR5000. You don't get much better than that 'round here.

I saw James Jamerson's upright bass once.

Nothing will ever compare to that.

Carl Thompson 10$ dollar bass. Certainly the most beautiful bass I've ever seen but I can't say I've had a chance to play it.

Nah the '62 P was stolen around the time of his death.

I saw his original German Upright (owned by his son). It has the most amazing indent that wore down from his thumb resting the same place.

Well my list for this is getting longer, now that I'm making weekly pilgrimages to my local supplier of high end/boutique basses.

I recently (in the last 2 weeks) played some nice Alembics, a few Roscoe Century's a beautiful SKB's, a Zon Sonus 5, an F Bass, and a Dingwall Afterburner.

But by far my favorite bass to date is still the old Steinberger. That is whats currently driving my GAS.

I have much hatred for Fatgoogle at the moment... Happy thoughts, happy thoughts.

For me? I'd have to say Warwick Corvette 5 string. Aside from the slightly chunky neck that bass was a beauty to see and play.

I've played an early prototype Fodera, Sold to a buddy of mine for cheap because it wasn't the top of the line model. Played a few gigs with him and it. the thing plays itself, the sound was pure orgasmic on any setting through my amp, it was the best bass I've ever played in the 2 to 3 thousand price mark, he wouldn't sell it for anything. bastard.
"Whats that noise??"

Agreed.

But the nicest bass I ever got to hold was Sting's Precision bass after a show in San Diego.
