Ok guys, this struck me this morning as I was walking around Madison, WI. Bear in mind that I'm not actually looking for a new bass, but i was curious.

Does anyone know if there is a company that makes a V-shaped bass (think Dean Razorback V) that people actually like? All the basses I've heard of, people generally dismiss as crap. I challenge you to find a good one.

Thanks
UG POKER!

TL;DR: Saw a girl at Wal-Mart, she started feeling me up, I jizzed in my pants.

Shit, I'm so pathetic.

Crabcore?

There's a reason high-end companies avoid V shaped basses. It just isn't a great design for a bass.

The bass your talking about wawai is a Jackson and all the stuff I've seen he's barely used it. He normally plays a Fender P-bass.

lol @ oxymoron.

The V shape won't work well for a bass. For that matter, the balance on V guitars is off too.



Yeah, the size of the tuning keys on a bass plus the reduced weight of a V would be crazy neck dive.

Yeah, My guitarist bought a V for his studio and he stopped playing it because of the neck dive. It was almost as bad as a T-bird.
