    Well, I FINALLY bought a digital camera & I took some good pictures of all my basses & put them all on one WebTV powered website. That peice o'junk WebTV's gotta be good for something. LOL. There are some new one :eek: :p & some are missing from the other webpage I had up. <a href="http://community-2.webtv.net/hotmail.com/theoremnews/basses/index.html">CLICK HERE</a> & enjoy.

    Tell me what you think of the site & the quality of the pictures. Thanks.

    i dig the clear pickguard - that's a clever resolution to the "nice top/needs a pickguard" dilemma. :D very nice.

    Nice stable nino, but I've just gotta ask, whats up with the headstock on the G&L ? :) And what year did they stop putting the metal plates under the knobs ? I estimate mine to be a 95, and there is no plate.

    Yeah, You can see my reflection in a few other basses also. :D

    In the full sized pic of the trans blue Sadowsky, you can see the bottle of bass polish. LOL. Had to make sure they were nice & clean!!!!

    When I bought the bass9about 8 yrs ago, It had no decal so instead of trying to get a decal, I used a magic marker & made it myseflf. Ah the things you do @ 17 years old. :)

    I'm not sure about the plate, Maybe mid 80's. Might wanna try to look @ www.guitarsbyleo.com

    Great collection, Nino !

    Also listened to your band on MP3.com. Not my cup of tea about the music, but your bass tone is awesome.

    All the best,
     
  15. Nice stuff, Nino!

    I love that blue Sad with the clear pickguard.

    Yep, looks good! I'm still trying to learn how to use my digicam...

    I was hoping that your thread title meant you had some pics of all of your basses together though... I know that's a hard one to arrange, I'm still trying to figure out how to cram all mine in to one shot.

    Nice Nino. I am impressed!:D
     
  20. I've gotta say, I really like the clean, elegant look of the Sadowsky 5--just natural finish ash and maple beautifully put together. The transparent blue one is cool, too! And the Spectors are works of art, as always...

    Great photography and nice page layout, too.
