What Bass Do You Play?
« on: May 04, 2006, 07:47:57 AM »
Basically, (pun intended) what's your setup?

I'm currently playing a Schector Stilletto Studio 5 (lefty) and have a Yamaha BB404L that I got on clearence from Musicians Friend last year as my backup.

I hope to move up to a Carvin LB75 soon and keep the Schector as my back up.

I have two main basses.

A Fender Precision Special Deluxe. It's basically a Precision body with the slimmer Jazz neck with both sets of pickups.

An Epiphone Viola. Though I thought I'd only use this one occasionally , it's quickly becoming my bass of choice. The short scale, light weight and mellow R&B sound makes it really attractive.

That's an awesome list man.  Could you give a review of the Bongo? 

I've played one and absolutely loved the tone but it was a righty so I had to play it upside-down haha.  If I don't get the Carvin, I'll go for the Bongo...just have to save a bit longer.

I'll add a pic of my Schector later this evening.  Nice basses everyone, keep the list growing!

Ahhh...I saw a Valenti mentioned! I plan on having a nice custom job done by Nino hopefully by the end of this year! Nino works for Sadowsky and knows his way around a bass! He also makes some of the nicest basses I've ever seen!
