I always felt that the Gibson Flying V Bass was so much more impressive than its six-string guitar counterpart. Probably mainly because it is just so enormous. I remember seeing John Entwistle playing a Flying V Bass with The Who backing Elton John performing Pinball Wizard in the film of Townshend's rock opera "Tommy", and I just thought "Whoah! That's one helluva bass!" Imagine the stage presence you could command with one of those.
