    I've searched for this club and was surprised to see that there isn't one yet. I know there's a lot of people on here who can't stand Mark Hoppus but I've seen a lot of people who own his bass. I personally love my Hoppus signature. I love the feel, the sound, and the lack of tone knob.

    I didn't make this club to start a war. I simply wanna see your guys' Hoppus bass :hyper: Post a picture! Tell us the year! Does it have any mods?

    Here's mine: 2003 all stock Daphne Blue

    Can you get some pictures up of all these different colors/schemes?

    I think we need to see them all and maybe you posted a pic but I can't see it. Just a red X

    Hey how do you make colored text? I want to make the X red.

    Maybe this will work?

    [red]X[/red]

    anyway - get some pic's up here in this piece!

    Cheers,

    Solar

    The red X is my favorite model. Does that one come with the transparent, weightless, odorless and tasteless pick guard?

    I'll try and get a pic up, but I have an original series shell pink that is my everyday practice bass. I added a Hipshot D-Tuner to mine and swapped out the original pickups with Sadowsky's. I really did not like the original Quarter-Pounders at all, but have to admit I really enjoy just about everything else about the bass.

    I'd really like to own one of the Surf Green ones (transparent or not). I've always liked jazz bodies and love the sound of P pickups.. I'm interested as to how different the basses with the reversed pickup sound. Sound clips anyone?

    Same man. I started years and years ago because of him. Even back when he was playing a Stingray. His signature growls!! You should get it :)

    I'll look for them but from experience, I'd say the new reversed isn't as bright. The difference isn't too big though

    I have owned 2 of them, one of which was poorly stripped by the previous owner.

    There both gone, but I wouldnt mind having a newer one.
