Show off your black basses!

I used to have a Ric exactly like that, with a black pickguard. Man, I miss it.

Once you go black, you never go back!!!

Fashionably dressed for this "Black Tie" affair…

I have two;

My first bass is my ever-sexy Fender Aerodyne…



…and earlier this year I acquired my first brand-new bass, a Fender Blacktop Jazz. I "modded" the pickguard, which was originally black/white/black, with the simple application of a red Sharpie marker and some black screws. Here's the "before" pic…



and the "after". It's amazing what you can achieve for a fistful of pennies!

I felt a great disturbance in Las Vegas…as if thousands of Elvis impersonators cried out and then suddenly left the building.
