hehe... In a Bass? It really depends, but i love the neck, and the tuning nobs, and the way you see tons of bass guitars with coloured strings. I also dig the way they're ultra fun to play.

I'm in aus, I've never seen one.

It's definately not an epiphone or gibson, the signature isn't right.
Anyway, I do agree that, that bass is pretty nice but every time i look at my fender jazz it becomes more and more sexier.

Spalted Maple & always a maple neck.

Scallops are always good to me. Rounded edges to the body and really nice/unusual fret inlays.
#14
3+2 or 2+2 headstocks are important, angled with no string trees. I'm not that bothered about having a fancy looking piece of wood. I don't like pickguards particularly. It's all about the tone though.

If I made a list of things I don't really like in a bass, all the things I don't like probably add up to make a Fender P...but I still love them.
#15
I think the body shape plays a key part in an attractive bass for me. I love the NS body shape of my Spector. Also, I think the neck has to be thick enough, not too thick, but not flimsy either. Oh, and a maple neck too. Maybe some EMGs too. Damn, I just described my bass

A natural body shape, flashy finish, a nice pickguard, and a MM head.

If anyone finds a bass such as this, please know that I am a tall caucasion male who enjoys playing bass, and long walks on the beach.

I like my basses the way I like my women. Nice body, knobs aren't too big, and most of all, sounds great.


You stole that right out of my mouth.

So instead I'll say this.

I like my basses the way I like my women. Zesty, and Italian. (I guess?)

I like my basses classic and simple. Plain finishes, a nice natural/transparent finish with and ash body, a black or a sonic blue Fender/Musicman with chrome hardware will do me nicely. Don't like too many knobs and I don't like all the "different" shaped basses such as Alembic, Warrior or Ritter, I just find them slightly ungainly.

black, white, natural, or sunburst finishes are the best. A Jazz Bass with a shell pickguard, abalone/pearl block inlays, thumbrest, pickup and bridge covers = Sexiest Ever

I like natural finshes and Tobacco sunburts

vintage looks and matching headstocks and block inlays

I think the Mustang bass is stoopidly sexy with its vintage look and sound

same with the old 50's style P-basses, with that big ol' pick up and the funky headstock

yeah, put an old skool P-bass head stock shape on a Mustang, and I think I'd have to marry it...

that's a pretty weird thing to say

*EDIT* and Thin necks are a MUST!!!

the Jaguar bass is also rather nice looking, and looks retro rather than vintage

I'm with indie on the classic look, esp. if it has a vintage feel. I love classic colours and the traditional sun and tobacco burst finishes. I love the classic Fender, musicman and Rics to death.

Pretty much any bass with 7+ strings and/or fanned frets is immediately sexy. I'm a fan of the crazy-styled basses, with Ritter and Jerzy Drozd being favorites.

As for "normal" basses, uncommon/beautiful woods get me. Burled Buckeye or Spalted Maple are amazing and the former with the right stain and finish is incredibly amazing. (see Ritter) Fender-esque basses are boring to me, as well as any knock-offs. Round bottoms and medium-pointy horns get me.

All Warwicks are sexy and no B.C. Riches look good. Period. The Thunderbird looks nice, but I'd never own one because of the problems with that bass.

A natural finish with a black burst is sexy as no one's business. Any hardware other than chrome is good. One color, glossy finishes are ugly, except for the Aerodyne. (The cream binding sets it apart)

All this, of course, is IMO.

- Transparent finishes, especially Trans Black... maybe red.
- "Reliced" instruments. Looks better on basses than on $60 jeans.
- Black + Maple basses
- White + Black or Tortoise Shell basses
- Fender MIA DLX Jazz Basses
- Warwick Streamers
- A solid feeling neck, but not clumsily so
- Nothing too "modern" looking (Ie. most Ibanezes, ESPs, Schecters)

Personally I like a traditional looking body but a smallish head with 2 x 2 or 2 x 3 tuners (rather than 4x0, 5x0, or 4x1). I also think black hardware looks nice.

In aesthetics, this bass looks great to me:

Yeah, that's my liking too. I personally like basses of that style, with the 3x2 tuners, black hardware, but I personally would love to get a bass with this paint:
http://www.ibanez.com/bass/guitar.aspx?m=SRX595
But, I personally don't like exposed magnets on the pickups. I also don't like Fenders and Gibsons or natural wood basses, sorry that's just not me, they just look too jazzy, or funk, or pop, or whatever (IMO). Black fretboards and blocked frets turn me on though XD.

Take a nice Fender Jazz. Now, don't change anything about it. There we go.

Preferably in a deep, dark red.

I love the classic Fender look and usually hate basses where they look similar to the Fender, but tried to make it a little "original".


yeah, that gets on my tits.

yeah! thats what my bass looks like, I really like the look of the flamed maple top and the sort of dark chrome knobs. I quite like being able to see the grain of the wood on a bass and a matt finish of some sort is always nice.

I like basses with natural wood finish, and I LOVE the exotic woods used in Warwick basses, like bubinga, and ovangkol.
#39
Im a sucker for natural finishes. I love neck thru with multi stripes of different types of woods and really thin necks.
