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!

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
