  1. What is wrong with me???? I'm GAS'in big time for a 70's J-bass. Could you guys post some pic's of some 70's J basses? RI, MIA, MIJ, Vintage, blonde, black, rosewood, maple, etc... Thanks, and maybe soon I'll be posting my very own 70's J!!!!!

  16. Yow that hurts! :hyper:

    That's my favorite combination J-bass that someday I will find, but in the mean time I have one that looks exactly like wateroftyne's bass.

    I really need to get a digital camera and stop borrowing one from work.

    yeah.. but i kinda modded it..after the shot
    new tort pickguard(not the one on the next shot either.. i just bought the new pg), push-pull-mod, and i kinda reliced it all to hell..beat up :meh: but i mean.. it looks good when i play it and it sounds and performs great.. shame it's not celluloid-laquer though.. pretty obvious it's reliced when you look at it..
    haha.. i just realized i wear the exact same clothes today as in the pictures below.. :D
