This thread is about the look alone, not the sound.

I really like this one. It reminds me of the most fun things from the 80s. It's ridiculous, but seems very practical (I haven't played one, unforunately). I probably wouldn't even hesitate to use one on stage if I was in a death metal band :aargh: :fu:

(Steinberger L-series)

Used to have this one. Not the most unique of basses, but the shape just looks so... aesthetic.

(Yamaha RBX374)

Claypool has plenty of expensive custom made basses. I'm sure every bass player knows at least this one:

(Carl Thompson "rainbow" bass)

I have always loved the Entwistle Buzzard Basses.

and Mockingbird

I would never own/play any of these at this point of my life, but always thought they were pretty cool looking.

The Rickenbacker will always be my favourite design.

This site has some pretty cool custom bass guitars, especially that Custom Pi.

Do those tuner-looking things at the bottom actually do anything?

I'm a Mockingbird fan. I also like the Ironbird.

It's actually an 8 string bass, like a 12 string with smaller guage strings tuned in octaves.

I do like Rickys but have always avoided them.
They use a dual truss rod one piece neck, if/when they go bad, the entire bass is shit.
I've seen a few where the fret board completely raised off the neck because of this design.

Are those additional strings just guitar strings?

String Gauges
.045, .065, .080, .100, regular string
.018, .028, .040, .050, octave string
A bit bigger.

Tom Petersson (Cheap Trick) often played a 12 string with regular bass and 2 octave strings per.

Watched about a dozen videos of Michael Manring playing one of those. Sounds amazing. Those are almost as cool as a haarp guitar.

It's just quirky enough without having to look like a surgical implement.

I kinda like it. Although I'd definitely shell out a few more bucks and change the bridge because it's the cheapest, most stock shit possible.

The stock bridge is pretty beefy and solid. I've swapped out the bridge on my Jazz bass with a Badass though.

They're clearly questioning his masculinity by putting a question mark over his dong.
