Not really a "dream instrument" per say, but one I've wanted for some time... either this or the 7 string version.

My dream instrument doesn't really exist... that's why it's a "dream" instrument, so stick with me while I describe it

Ok, imagine a chapman stick. Now get rid of the strings, so essencially you only have the neck. Where the strings were, have a grid system of "tapping buttons" that would take the place of the strings. It'd be a flat, iPhone like neck with touch buttons. Where each string would be there'd be a button, and you'd tap it, and it'd play that note. So it's kind of like a digital, LCD/touch chapman stick. whatever.

that's another one of my dream instruments - an original carbon fiber steinberger, particularly the crazy blue/green one Paul Masvidal used to play...

It'd be custom, of course, but:

5-string bass
Gibson Explorer body
24 frets
Active EMG HZs
BadAss II bridge
Fender Lake Placid blue

I guess that'd be it. I'd put some Rotosound Swing Bass 66s on it. I'd be set.

Ok probably exactly what I´ve been dreaming of for years, THE EXPLORER shape. BUT though my choice were to be a 4-stringer with active EMG HB, sweet ass tuners and it would have to be natural or something like that. The headstock would probably be a pointy thingy.
Shit, it would be sizzling!!

but un-custom made for me it would be a Modulus Quantum 5. Sick basses.

I would hate a 7 string bass. I had a 6 string and I just don't have the fingers for it. A 3" wide neck is already big enough...... Some of those basses look fake they are so crazy.

Dr, B1ll, those do exist minus the touchscreen, it's called a keyboard. lol I like the idea of the different key layout though. If you were used to that system it would be very cool.

Yeah, I meant the bubinga kit. It's beautiful. And pretty damn beast. I'd also like Mike Portnoy's new kit. The clear one. Fucking insane!

Check out the Cort Artisans. Those things play like butter and I think are made by the same people.

Portnoy's new kit looks cool but the setup makes my head hurt. And not in a good way either. Why would someone set up a kit to need two (or ever how many) thrones? Maybe I just don't get it. I could arrange all of that stuff to be reachable from one throne. I guess it wouldn't look as cool from the crowd though. Getting up and changing thrones in the middle of a song doesn't hinder anything no......use a fucking cable hi hat for christs sake. Sorry, that setup bothered me the first time I saw it and it just gets worse every time I see it. I guess some people feel the same way about my setup though.

Anyway, the white bubinga kit is where it's at. Screw marigold sparkle :puke:
