    Hey guys,
    I was just remembering a pic I saw here
    This bearded guy, white shirt, slaying his axe like a real axe, vicious facial expression and, this is the part that I just have to chuckle about, duckt tape on the back of his bass spelling: 'Yo Momma'
    *btw, anybody know which band and which guy that is?
    So I thaught to myself, why not a thread about that
    I know that some guys here are pros and refrain from putting stickers on their basses
    (well if I paid as much as you did, I wouldn't do that either :smug:)
    but all you livingroom musicians, unite!
    tell me your tale of sticker glory
    I myself am proud to say that I met the singer of the Planet Smashers at Groezrock a local festival, and while we were talking he gave me this sticker of the band, which was cool an overal cool guy
    So anybody here got a cool story about the origin of a sticker?

    the mockingbird was damn close to being covered in stickers, due to the fact that I didnt want a red bass. the stickers drew alot of attention when i played out on it.
  3. actually anybody here might hate me. I'm 16 and I play an Ibanez GSR200. I had a whole bunch of stickers on my bass and took them all off with Goo Gone because I'm taking senior pics on Wednesday with my bass and I don't want to look like a punk :bag: Sorry :bag:

    I would never put stickers on my Musicman. no way.

    but I have a bunch on my case - such as "It's not the number of strings that count, but the girth" and "Bassists finger better"

    I have a Trogdor sticker on my Precision, and I have a little Yoda hanging from the string tree too.

    The Rickenbacker is sacred, though.

    That's the bassist from The Chariot.


    There's a better picture out there but I'm at work and also I'm lazy.
  8. A couple of years ago, my old hardcore band decided to write on the back of our guitars with colored duct tape. Our lead player had "DANCE," I had "KILL" and our other guitarist had "POOP" on his.

    Our drummer had an electro-acoustic guitar she picked up reasonably cheaply when she went through a 'learn every instrument I can get my hands on phase'...

    Anyway our guitarist had used it at a couple of open mic nights before we realised that there was a sticker on the back of the headstock that just says 'F*** Thee'.

    Random. Slightly sinister, but pretty hilarious when we first noticed it.

    I only have on bass with a sticker on it right now. It is a cheapo sticker from one of those gumball machine things at a local restaurant. I thought it pretty funny and put it on the pickguard of my SX P bass.....

    I used to have stickers on my blue bass from about a year ago, right before I sold it there was the American Stripe under the strings (like in the photo)
    But before the flag stripe, above the bridge and pickguard, in a dull metallic silver was the words "piss off". The stickers went across the body from the sculpted part of the body up to the pickguard, so one could read them as I played the bass. They were in the typewriter font and I was inspired by the way Monty Python ended their live shows....sadly no pic of that....
  16. I don't have stickers on my bass, but I do have the coolest cab ever, covered with old gig tickets and stuff :)

    Says "corazón" (literally, "heart," translated from Spanish as "my love"), I made that sticker myself. Came from a line in the Shakira song "Ciega, Sordomuda" (2:46):

    Interestingly, the song has no bass part. The "bassist" is playing a Mexican mariachi instrument called a guitarrón.
  18. Goodness me! Look at those strings! Do they self mute?

    What do you mean?

    The strings are DR Black Beauties. I use a technique borrowed from classical guitar, thumb + 3 fingers (actually +4, in that particular shot). The coating is just about gone on the top strings... I think it's about time I change them, haha.
