I have my dream basses. One may not be a name brand, but I'm happy with it!

Galveston 8-string

I like the feel of vastness with all the strings. Eventually, I'll learn how to handle it like it's meant to be handled. This is my main bass.


Warwick Thumb Bass 4-string Fretless  :wink:

This is just really a trophy bass, but I do practice on it at least once a week.

For me its between a spector and a warwick or a fondera,  I love the sound of the spector but its so big the spacing between the frets are to big for me maybe i would get used to it but... the old bass player at my church has one natural wood with gold hardware and I got turned on to the warwicks from bass player mag I love the look the shape and I went the music store and enjoy the slap sound but its not very deep it doesnt have a heavy bottom end and the fondera's I've only seen pics so that aint one of my affairs yet

umm Not to sure about this I'm not much of a dreamer when it comes to items. But I would love a 6 string Ibanez not the BTB model I think it's the SRX model. for a 4 I'd like a LTD or a Carvin. Ebony fingerboard and black hardware.

Either a 6-string Warwick or Lakland...

They both sound very nice! Lakland got a real nice feel, and Warwick just got that growl... in my opinion.

Maybe that Maurice Fitzgerald Signature Bass by Warwick...

No Doubt it's a

Warwick Thumb 6 string with the white oak or light oak.

Ibenez 6 String Signature Series (you know the high end one)


I'm currently on the BTB so don't knock it.  Nasty little bass if you know what you're doing.  I'm in the intermediate class right now.  Since I'm overseas, I'm staying there between $600 - $800 but when I get back to the states, yall know it's on...  I'm getting the bass and the rig I want.

My warwick has MEC pickups. They sound beautiful. I'm still trying to find out what type of pickups are in my 8-string. They don't sound bad, but they don't sound like the warwick either. If I can get some EMG or MECs for my 8string then I'll be straight...


I'm wondering if I can use 2 five string pickups in J-style on the front though. That may work, and just leave the standard pickup in the back....Hmm...I doubt that I'd do that though, since it'll leave a big UGLY hickey on it!

I'm blessed, fortunate, and ridiculously spoiled and own several of my dream basses.  Five of my 6 basses are pictured here....



The 6th one is a Blue Music Man Bongo that I tried very hard to hate when I played it at Guitar Center but wound up buying it.

The two on the ends are Alembics.  The 5 string is a Series II, the 4 string is a Series I.  The basses right next to each Alembic are Hanewinckel 6 string basses.  The one on the left is fretless, the one on the right is fretted.  They are consecutive serial numbers, even though I bought both used, two years apart.  The one in the middle is a custom that I had built by a luthier named Jacob Marchlewski.  It's a very small, very light (for me) 5 string with maple body, neck and fingerboard with amboyna burl top and back and Bartolini pickups and preamp.

I tend to play the Marchlewski or the fretted Hanewinckel at church service.

Peace,

James
