    I like to do it on top of the comforter like a gentleman.

    Everything is better in bed.

  7. I hadn't noticed how guilty I am of this pic-posting crime. Here are mine:

    Ibanez SR885 and Ampeg B2 head w/ SVT1512, accompanied by a comforter.

    Warwick Thumb BO 6 with blue checkered picnic-looking tablecloth.

    Conklin GTBD-7 with comforter.

    Leaning against the same bed sheet in each shot, here are:
    Kala SUB Solidbody UBass & DeArmond Ashbory

    Squier Katana Bass

    Most of the herd with a few absentees since this picture.

    The inside of my house is a disaster, so I use the shiny new sportscar outside


    When the car got a scratch I used our professionally maintained lawn


    Maybe I oughta change my ringtone to Sanford & Son

    I prefer using comforters as back-drop. Makes the bass stand out.

    Who needs nasty bed sheets!
  13. Often I just use the couch:


    But a nice background can really make an instrument stand out:

  18. Completely off-topic, but scrolling down a thread a while back and seeing this photo convinced me to try a 3-way switch on my PJ, and it works great! So thanks for the inspiration
