Obligatory picture thread

You mean there are other basses? :D This is where those discussions go.

No sales or advertisements, no matter how well veiled, are permitted - not even a pointer elsewhere.

I don't have any pics of my L-2000 Tribute yet (only got it yesterday!), but here is the rest of my bass family:

- A little something I put together (unknown body woods, Seymour Duncan Alnico MM, SD Quarter Pounder Jazz, Artec SE-2 2 band EQ, Hipshot bridge, Hipshot Ultralite tuners, french polish finish):

Image

- 1978 Gibson G-3

Image

- 2004 Epiphone Les Paul (Not So) Standard bass (2x EMG-HB pickups and EMG-BQC 3 band EQ)

Image

I used to be a real tinkerer, but I'm playing too much these days. The only thing I'd like to do is fit a selector switch in the appropriate location to my Les Paul. Then I might change pickups more often ;)

I suppose a Rumblefish is about as "other" as it gets. I just love these things! For those who have'nt played one, they sound terrific.

Ok, just to prove that I actually do play around with a Bass Guitar, here are a couple of pics of my Yamaha BBG4. I bought it used a couple of years ago just to find out if playing Bass was for me. I have been a guitar player since I was a kid (30+ years). I found this guitar and an SWR LA12, both about 3 yrs old, on Craigs list for $300. Seemed like a steal to me so I grabbed them. I have since updated the amp to an SWR WorkingPro 12 (which I love) and would like to add a US L-2500 at some point in the future. Needless to say, I am really enjoying playing the Bass Guitar as do my guitar playing friends. Too many times we had way too many guitars at an event but no bass. Not a problem anymore! I play mostly worship services and other events. Not a member of a real band or anything.

I just restrung it with Elixer lights and I really like the sound and feel of the strings. I had put a set of Daddario Chrome flatwounds on it but didn't like them at all except for the feel. For some reason they had this weird metallic ringing sound that I just hated. The open E string had some funky harmonics as well. They just didn't seem to work well on this bass.

Enough talk, here are the pics.

I know the flamed look is fake, but, I think this bass looks decent for a learning instrument.

Gibson, Limited Edition, SG short scale. I added a HipShot bridge, to make intonation and adjustments simpler.
