Hello guys, can any of you tell me what bass the golden/yellow one is?
Thanks a lot for your help
Looks like a Schecter with tape over the logo, but that's just a guess.

thanks a lot, it looks like this one (http://www.schecterguitars.com/bass/model-t-detail) but with different pickups
thanks for your help
Hard to tell with the blur on the photo, but the shape of them reminds me of the EMG's I had in my Charvel 2B back in the day.
Pickups are EMGs. I never understood why people don 't want to show the manufacturer of their instrument but aren 't too proud to play them. These Schector model Ts are cool basses .
Clearly, it's a "BiCHO!"
I know a few folk who don't like the idea of advertising for free, no matter how they like their instrument or how small the scale of the advertising.
Which means they'd have to remove the emblems from their automobiles, tape over the decals on their bicycles, de-stitch all the outside labels on their clothing, cover up every can and bottle of soda/beer they drink, and so on unto infinity. These folk must be very influential celebrities to believe that their image is worth that much.
They aren't centre stage when driving or cycling etc. etc.
Not at all, as I already said, scale of the advertising is practically nil, more a matter of principle.
More like a matter of wild megalomania.
Because they put a bit of tape over a headstock? Settle eh.
Over the years I've seen enough people judge bands by the instruments they play, that's enough to see where some folks are coming from.
If I was a full-time musician struggling to get by? Then I can appreciate the sentiment. The company could throw a few quid my way to help me pay the rent in exchange for what is effectively - to them - free advertising.
On an ethical point, maybe I don't want to give the (false) impression that I'm publicly endorsing the product when it's just the equipment I happen to have at the time. Besides the fact that you're giving it up for free.
Now if I'm just having a laugh, playing weekends, playing covers, as a hobby then sure. I wouldn't care.
