    Hey you! I know you like to make art with your camera too. Analog film. Digital still. Filters. Lights. Whatever you got, share it with us!

    Again and again, I love my Squier CV 60s Jazz Bass. Tried a MIM recently, the finish and quality were far from being on point with the Chinese made stuff from 2006 to 2014 at Squier. Story aside, here's the photo:

    Haha, that was for practice purposes when I didn't have any foam handy. I don't even remember what it was I had shoved under the masking tape. I have some foam pipe insulation in there now.

    Not too arty, but I like the angle and the glare on the tuning key.

    Rebirth Customs from London. Taka is the man. They’re Jazz pickups in the prototype style shells, the bridge is kinda musicman ish. Loooooooove this bass. Offset body is comfortable and the neck is to die for. Taka is the bass player for Feeder and sets these up great

    Wish I didn't have those ugly reflections on Willy's face but this was just an impromptu shot and I had no time to really work out the issue. I have since sold the bass and I am pretty sure this photo shoot helped quite a bit in that process.
