    I dunno. Just some Tele ripoff I guess. It'd help if there was a better veiw of the headstock... (yeah, like that would help me identify it :rolleyes: )
     
  3. Of course I know what that is, it is a somewhat chubby, balding gentleman with lots of ink playing bass.....

    It's one of Schecter's lovely creations. A Robert Deleo sig with a twist.
     
  6. No, that headstock is pure FERNANDES!

    Thanks, funky! I had a hunch that it was a Fender knockoff, but that was as far as my hunch took me. Now, I wonder if that site you linked meant Japanese instead of Japamese?

    Nothing to add about the bass, BUT......... about the only thing more lame than making love with your socks on is wearing your band's t-shirt at a gig!!!!!!! :rolleyes:

    Hey, I have done both (sometimes my feet get cold, man)! I thought the rule was you couldn't go to a concert wearing the shirt of the band you were going to see, I didn't know it applied to your band.
     
  11. Yeah, i think it's a Shecter. It looks customized, though.

    :D :D Well......as long as she didn't know.

    The other thing is like having your name on the breast pocket of your shirt. Bowlers like it. :D

    I also wear a shirt with my name on it -- one of my mechanic's shirts from my days as a wrench. Hey, if I didn't let people know who I was, the only person they would know would be the singer! ;)

    Also, not only do I wear my socks when I'm bumpin' uglies, but they're black socks, baby!
     
  17. If you're on tour and all of your own clothes are too dirty to wear, the merch tees are fair game! :D

    It is a Fernandes "T" style bass. Edderly (edderly.com) had one for the longest time a while ago. Don't think they are made anymore. Like the Vertigo, it was one of Fernandes'es "signature" lines for a while. In a sort of demented way, they look like they are pretty cool basses. Most Fernandes basses play fairly well and sound half way decent, but I have never played one that was convincingly "high end".
