Best Bass Guitars Everadfairhurst There are many different bass guitars, and here we can vote for our favourites. (Mine is a tie between the 1974 fat-style Gibson Ripper and black-pickup style Gibson G3.) Fender Jazz and Precision will probably win, but who knows? I've added a few to get you started. By the way, if a bass has had dramatic design changes (like the Ripper's body changing, or the P bass going from single coil to split coil) it counts as a new bass. Vote away!
The Top Ten
The first good bass ever made. It hasn't changed since 1957 for a reason: it's perfect. - adfairhurstV 1 Comment
Innovative and cool. I prefer the black-pickup version, but the clear pickups are good too. Plus, this is the Green Day bass. - adfairhurst

Bright and perfect for slap. - adfairhurst
"The Fender Jazz Bass has got to be one of the most perfect things ever designed by man."

Jaco wouldn't be wrong...
I've owned and played 'em all. The absolute best Rock bass is the Stingray. No bass on the planet has more teeth than this monster! I also love Jazz and P basses but if I only played one guitar for the rest of my life my Music Man would win hands down.V 1 Comment
