    OK people. For the past two years my avatar has been a variety of basses, as modeled by Strong Bad (from homestarrunner.com). Let's see how long it will take everyone to identify make and model of all of them!

    Notes:
    - no affiliation with homestarrunner. com (a very funny site)
    - sorry about the pic quality. I'm no photo genius.
    - #4 has the headstocks mostly cut off. See above.
    - Some of the basses have the color artificially intensified so that they would look better when shrunk to avatar size.
    - careful on #4 - it may not be what you think it is.

    So, without further ado, the pics:

    I'm guessing 24 hours until our erudite membership :cool: has them all nailed.

    :hyper: GO!
