    Can anyone point me in the direction of a web site or sites that have many photos of well known makes and models of basses?

    I ask because my bass is a clear knock off of a well known make/model, but I can't for the life of me remember what - I've seen a photo before, but can't remember where.

    Cheers Josh - A quick look through the first look shows that it may be an older Musicman S.U.B knock off, given that I have just the humbucker p/u. It's got the roundish pick guard.

    But, I shall post a photo tomorrow, just in case.

    Cheers Speddling. The Musicman range is just too similar for mine to not be a copy.

    It's not exactly the same:

    2 knobs vs 3.
    No guard around the knobs.
    Tuning pegs all on the same side.

    However, they are the same shape, have the single humbucker in the same position and have the same oval pickguard.

    Thanks guys.

    Here's a shot of my bass - anyone care to confirm that it is a Musicman lookalike?

    PS - Mine's the black one...
