Obligatory pictures. It's for pictures of YOUR G&L basses.

You know the rule: No pics, no bass. It just doesn't exist until we see it here.

Please: The images you post should be images of basses that you've owned at one time or another. It's no problem if you've flipped a bass that's in here, or even if the image is of a bass you used to own. Scans from elsewhere, with permission from the copyright holder, should be in a thread of their own.

Max image size here is 1024x768, which works very nicely inline using IMG tags. Anything bigger will be truncated, cutting off lower-right. If you really absolutely for certain have to link your 15MP beauty, please do so using URL tags rather than IMG tags.

Please try to keep any comments or questions in separate threads in the forum. If you really absolutely for certain HAVE to verbosely drool within the thread, please keep the truncation fairies at bay by limiting yourself to a single line.

Any slobbering on keyboards is at your own risk.

================

Apparently, Photobucket has decided to monetize your sharing of YOUR images. It isn't anything as crappy as watermarking them with ads, but they are blocking hot-linking them without a paid subscription. You can tell this because instead of displaying your image they feed this:

PB No Hotlink.png
PB No Hotlink.png (98.68 KiB) Viewed 5362 times


So what to do? As a temporary workaround, you can right-click on the warning and "View image in new tab". This is kind of a chore but it works. It might also enable the image to display properly - at least for a while. You can also edit your posts and add the images as an attachment. A better solution is to move your images over to IMGUR.COM. Either way, you'll need to edit your posts to fix the URL that points to your image, but it works and it's (so far) free.

This has been going on for a while and no one has noticed or said anything. I'm going to leave posts with these blocked images up for a while - a month or so. After that, I'm sad to say that I'll start some house cleaning and remove them. That's a LOT of images of some very nice basses, but I'd rather have these links work the way they should.

Hiya,

Here's mine. I bought it brand new back in '87. I spent about 3 hours in the store deciding between an SB1 and this SB2, I finally resorted to flipping a coin. (looking back, I should have bought both) After all these years, it's still my go-to instrument. I play it much more than any of the others, so much so it's the only bass I have had to re-fret. Currently, I have a set of Lane Poor pups wired V-T with a selector switch. (The Poor's are super clean with lower output)
