2006 Rogue VB100 "Beatle" Bass (many of us seem to have one made by whomever...)
1965 Hagstrom F-400, red (pretty sure it's the F-400 anyway)
1967 Hagstrom Concord, mahogany sunburst (hollow body)

Ric's are:
1982 4001S (jetglo)
1998 4003 (fireglo, mod'd for vintage tone w/ two series .0047 caps rather than one)

I think we'd done this on another forum topic, but what heck?

charizm ... what do you think of the line 6 bass?


I know you aimed this at charlzm, but I'll stick in my twopennorth (two cents worth I suppose if you're "over the pond").
I was lucky enough to play/hear most of the (then) current line6 variax gear at the UK music live last november. Provided you make a mental (& physical) adjustment to play in the style of the instrument being replicated it's a really great instrument. There were some rough edges to the build of the instrument I had hold of - possibly due to the fact that several hundreds of people were trying to give them a spin - but it's the electronics that swing it.
Some of the sounds are REALLY close. Just how can a fretted instrument SOUND fretless?

Just an early nineties Fender Jazz which I've had from new. I absolutely adore the thing. It was originally white but it is now cream, the back of the neck has worn down and the paint is going on the body where my wrist sits. All this wear was made by me and I love that. It has done every gig/rehearsal I've done (which is quite a few) but my recently acquired 4001 is going to give the Jazz a rest for a while I think.

Basses are addictive, I love it. I own a 2005 Monty 4003 and a 2006 red Warwick Corvette Standard 4 string. I will eventually get a Geddy J bass.
