    Oh my, B'N'M P/J Sadowsky!:eek:

    Beautiful, and exactly how I'd want a Sadowsky!

    Well, I might have chose a different pickguard, but it's damn' nice on this one!:bassist:

    Thanks! I also have a black pickguard so I can switch them out whenever I might feel like a change. :)

    Ok here's my black and maple EBMM stringray 5. It's a little generic but I
    still love it. I was thinking a tort pickguard would look nice on it though. I
    might have to order one some time soon.

    I'm already a member but thought I'd post up another pic anyway. Just because.

    My 08 Black-N-Maple P :) It's a great player and the action is sick low on this bass. The PG has since been changed out for a Black one. The white was overkill for me.

    Before

    After IMO looks way better :)

    There are a lot of Stingrays among the B-n-M and you can never have enough IMHO.

    There is probably a picture of one with a tort guard in Part 1 or Part 2 of the thread and probably some other combos that you hadn't thought of, but when you see it, you might end up liking as well.

    As you can tell, I haven't yet taken up photography as a hobby. :help:

    But for some reason, this picture posts bigger than my previous attempts so here is a blast from the past, lucky B-n-M #7 - a Peavey USA Millennium in front of the mini rig of doom.

    #271, I'd love one of those old P Delux V's......
    Nice, real nice, and the MM pickup isn't too close to the bridge, :bassist:.
    My Trabens are, have to tame 'em with flats...

    Looks great with that pearloid guard. My fretboard is pretty light colored. The pic makes it look darker.

    I was considering a black pearloid guard for mine before I went with the black.

    PART 3 :hyper:.


    Anyway, I see what you meant by "occasional landscapes with basses in"; now :D.

    Fearsome looking bass though, DS. Is that a tremelo, or just a very high mass bridge :confused:?

    :smug: I have to agree with you there, 60bass - that is an iconic look for the P Bass :bassist:.
