Regardless of sound or price what do you think is the best looking and worst looking bass?

For best looking, and I know I'll get a lot of 'it looks like driftwood' replies, I would say the Warwick Buzzard that JE used with the Who at the Albert Hall (youtube is for the best solo ever). Either that or the Musicman Bongo Stingray.

I cant stand how P basses look, unless they have a really good finish like steelburst then they just look boring to me and I dont like those giant pick guards. The Vampyre looks pretty fugly too.

Best looking bass would be the dude in Protest the Hero. That's one sexy lookin' bass. Forgot the brand though.
Jackson King V KVX10
Line 6 Spider III 75 W.

I don't know who made it, who owns it but, where I saw it, or where a picture can be found I do remember exactly what it looked like.

Nine String, 8 gold bolts in the neck, 5 piece purple heart wood/maple neck with a GORGEOUS figured Flame finger board, 25 medium jumbo frets in gold, a single cut body with the body going up to the EIGHTENTH (18TH) ****ING FRET!!! Transparent purple over a spalted maple body. oh god... oh ****...I'm gonna...oh god I'm gunna....

AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH





I can't remember the name of it but it could even the greatest buzz

fortress looks pretty.
vampyre is kickass, but wouldn't really suit my style and casual garb. that bass wants spikes and leather.
I like the guild starfire look a little more than the eb-2, but it is pretty similar.

but I saw Drozd the other day and well...

those are the most beautiful basses ever.

I like rics, and i'm not mad on modern stuff. I'm a traditionalist, I like rics, p-basses, jazz's, grabbers etc over any modern looking yama, ibanez or warwick.
