    Here are some photos of my Musicman Sterling that I had fun creating on Microsoft Picture It!
    Guess it's my way of expressing the endless possibilities I see in my bass.
    Hope you enjoy them.

    not photoshopped, but maybe it works?
     
  13. I spent two minutes setting up and taking the picture, and about three more minutes in Photoshop putting together my avatar pic, shrinking it down to "legal" size, and uploading it here.

    What is that? An Ibanez ATK? I've only ever seen one once, and the bridge/pickup thing screams it, but I don't recall the pickguard being that shape (reminds me of a Modulus Flea Bass, to be honest).

    yeah, it's an ATK300. almost wish it were a Flea Bass, but I love my ATK
     
  18. Hah, that's funny! Yesterday I was fooling around with my digital camera & photoshop and I also created some weird shots of my ATK.

    Hehe, weird things going on with your body-size when you reflect in the knobs of an ATK :rolleyes:.

    For some reason, it looks like an in-car cam driving by a hospital emergency room when it's small, looks like a bass when it's big!

    A black and white picture of my bass guitar made by me during my college years in 1997.

    This is no modified picture, I photographed my bass because of an assignment where we had to make artfull pictures of normal posessions.
