The Trashiest Basses ever!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by RadioactiveGuy4, Nov 26, 2012.

  1. So I just got done looking at the Most Elegant Basses thread and to make those of us who have a long time till we can buy a Ritter, or one of those other crazy expensive basses lets see the worst of the worst. I'm talking fret ends like razors, necks that are 3 kinds of stupid, pickups that sound better after they have been beaten with a hammer, and finishes that look like a 3 year old finger painted them on. Lets see em! :bassist:

    that would be mine, my first bass looks a bit like hammered **** after all these years of abuse

  3. I wish I still had my first bass so I could post it on here. It was a Rouge 4 string with an action so high I could limo under the strings but for $30.00 it was not the worst thing in the world. I had it for 3 months then someone broke into our practice space and took it and a bunch of other really crappy stuff but left all our most expensive gear. Who ever took it did me a favor because after that I went out and bought a Squire Active Deluxe jazz bass and that thing kills it.
  4. Holy crap, is that fry grease by your pickups? haha

    You rang?


    Not only did I custom-order this, I actually managed to trade it to somebody a few months ago. He sold it within a month, so there's apparently more of a market for "necks that are 3 kinds of stupid" than anyone would suspect.
  7. Yes that indeed is 3 kinds of stupid :p
  8. Signature Emmure bass on the bottom of that 3 neck (for the metalheads here that get that joke)

    Nope, the paint is just that bad. I've mentioned that bass before, it's the one that went under water during Katrina. Turns out that salty flood water and massive amounts of debris isn't too good for a finish
  10. That bass is more a survivor than trashy lol

    maybe for that part, but the empty J pickup route, 2 input jacks(one non-functional) the fact that it was defretted with no tools other than a pocket knife, and the scratched off Ibanez logo? those all point to trashy

    not to mention the 12 unique cracks on the headstock
