: I wanted to know what everyones personal prefernece was for basses? FendeR? Ibanez? What? What do you guys like playin most?

Nathan,
There's probably people here who'll have conniptions about this, but my favorite bass was an old 1968 Kustom (think tuck-n-roll) Krazy Kat bass that got ripped off a couple years ago.

For those who have never seen one (fairly rare), they had a short 30" scale, 2 DeArmond single coil pickups, and they look kind of like the Rickenbacker Capri series of guitars (i.e., the 330, 360, 370 that were popular with 60's British bands, the Byrds, etc.).

It wasn't great for proper technique or full tone, but that little thing was just plain *fun* to play!

-Bob

P.S. Thanks to Mickster for telling me about this place!
