My go to basses are both local luthier built. One is Marilyn by David Searl and the other is SneakyJaks fretless. I’ve loved owning a Rob Allen Mouse and I don’t believe I’ll part with my Dingwall or my Maillioux P bass (you’ve got to own a P for the studio) but Marilyn gets all the play time and when I can get rid of the ringing in my ears I’ll get back into fretless. It’s just too hard right now.

My favourite bass is definitely my Mailloux but I voted Yammy as it's my second favourite bass I own and I am yet to play a bad Yammy at any price.

Even though I'll never be able to afford one, I voted Fodera. Their basses are incredibly well made and they really are the Stradivarius of the bass world IMO.......as well as David Searles basses :)

This is a super hard thing for me to quantify because most of the interesting, clever stuff I see isn't A; isolated to one brand, B; being done by the mainstream brands (Ibanez being the exception). My current faves are people like; Atlansia, Dingwall, Hilton, Christopher and Schorr. Course I know I'm a weirdo.


P.s. might we say all the clones and super-clones are really just Fenders anyway?

I have never seen or played one but I would have to say a WAL would be my favourite.

Just talking brands, Mesa Boogie does it for me. High quality, innovative company that packs a lot into a little.
