i've played a few....my first was a custon made, solid mahogany body and fender neck. weighed a freakin ton. i then got a nifty squire, for $25 from a friend who just wanted it out of his house. so i de-fretted the custom, which made a very nice sound.
now i play on, believe it or not, a peavey GRIND BASS 4 BXP NTB....now i never would have thought about buying a peavey, but i got suckered into playing one at the store and loved the way it felt in my hands. smooth neck, the frets are close to the fretboard which works really well for me, and it was so much lighter then any bass i'd worn in the past.
excellent sound on it too....now i just need to upgrade my amps
