The Top TenXW

1Fender Precision Bass

BEST EVER. only problem is it makes my amp like sing or whine or make this weird tone when I don't touch the strings. but thats just my bass I think. sounds great, not too much slappy tone, ORIGINAL.

Fantastic bass but Musicman EB Stingray should be there too and would be higher than BC Rich Warlock Bass.

guy above me, that's with the cheap ones.. even the cheap $200 are not that bad and they stay in tune

2Rickenbacker 4001

In my opinion, there is a tie between the Fender Precision Bass and the Rickenbacker 4001. Really it all boils down to personal taste. The Rickenbacker is more in your face and trebly, whereas the Fender is much darker sounding. Cliff Burton, Paul McCartney, and Geddy Lee used these basses so you certainly can't go wrong with one.

I always have loved the unique sound and look of this classic rickenbacker. I myself play a Hofner wich I personally think is the best but next up would be a rickenbacker for its amazing sound.

3Fender Jazz Bass

The most versatile bass there is... Because of placement of pickups and neck shape, there are many different tones that can be made depending on particular technique. The P Bass is also very good, but has less versatility than the jazz bass. The smaller neck of the jazz bass also makes it easier to play fast.

Perfect classic design! Really confortable neck and great sound quality. Just check out, only dhe greatest bass player like Mr. Pastorious and aston barret use it. The p bass its ok. But the jazz got that really depp bass sound that only a fender jazz could give you.

4Gibson Thunderbird

The Thunderbird has the dark and deep sounding bass sound that bass guitars should have and no bass comes close in terms of it's awesomeness players like Tom Hamilton and John Enwistle used these bass for rock and metal nothing touches it

the gibson thunderbierd has to be one of the best basses I ever played in my life

Has an amazing punchy tone. Don't get me wrong, Fender basses are well built but their style SUCKS!

5Ernie Ball Music Man

Great tone and packs a punch in each note!

This is the bass Flea played forever.

Great Punch and solid Bottom. Great Bass

6B.C. Rich Warlock Bass
7Aria Pro Bass

This bass defines the 80's sound. Great definition with a fantastic attack and a great core. The hardware and woodwork are top notch and the design is bombproof. My main bass since many years and it still puts my Thunderbird, my Steinberger and my Warwick Star Bass as backup basses.
