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.

Yet another one that got away. What was I thinking.

Couple more that are no longer mine, and one soon to be gone (I hope).

The bass teacher in me kept saying I needed a fretless. Found this Lakland on the Bay for a good price.

I have finally got round to taking photos of a few more of my herd, well basses anyway.

First my trusty old 62 P that I have since about 1968 or 9, can't remember exactly. It was all I could afford at the time and was in the bargain basement along with a very beat up Ric. I refinished it as someone had scraped most of the original red finish off and daubed it with household polyurethane varnish.

The blue tape on the pickup has been there since I bought it, there is a slight earthing problem that I have never bothered to sort out. If you touch the magnets with you finger it screams especially when plugged into my old tube amp.

Very beat up Stingray 5. It was filthy when I bought it and has large areas of finish missing. These do not show up on the photo but believe me it is a real beater but very nice to play and I don't mind where I take it.

Musicman SUB that I bought for peanuts as it was filthy and the bridge was assembled incorrectly. All it needed was a strip, a good clean and reassembly correctly and it has turned out to be a really nice bass. I change the awful aluminium pick guard for a nice antique white perloid one.

In the last few months I have traded away two of my "others" for two other "others".

The Warwick went for the Stingray 5 fretless and a Maxon CS-9 Pro Chorus thrown in.

The Lakland fretless and a little cash went for the Marcus Miller Jazz. What a sweet bass the MM Jazz is. I had no expectation but when I tried it out in the store I knew it was a winner right away. Even with the dead strings that were on it, the bass had authority and clarity. It's got a two-band tone control and a three-bolt neck, which are very familiar.
