    A view from where the sun don't shine. This is a M. Thoma thin body bass. Actually sounds pretty good.
    I've got a bassist buddy who grew up in a rough area. Everytime this brand name comes up he tells the story of when he was a kid they used to harass the hookers down the block by shouting out-" Hey baby, gimmee a Toma!" Toma being an acronym for Tongue out my---well, you get the picture.

    That's a very interesting photo. It would make a nice "what is this?" for the non bass player.



    If you couldn't see the maker's label, it would be easy enough to convince someone that it was a view into a large room with a column.

    Very neat. How'd you light it so well and so evenly?

    Hope there are tweezers for removing splinters from the strippers who slink around on that pole...
