Bit the bullet and put a sticker on my P-Bass

    Since I woke up at noon today in still up at 2am and trying to fill my time with projects. While cleaning out my work room I found a sticker my brother mailed to me from his home in Hawaii and some other random crap.

    Decided to set up my beater P-bass and gave it a sticker as a reward. I also found an old mimeographed comic page so I distressed it the the point where it fits. Sorta. IMAG1505. IMAG1503.
     
  2. Putting stickers on your bass can lower the resale value :D

    I know. Its why I've only done reversible mods like the hipshot bridge.

    Oh wait, I had to redrill because it was the wrong hole pattern. Uh... I mean I only do reversible mods like swap the pickguard. Yeah!

    I've been looking for a Dark Horse sticker like this one for years to put on a Fender.

    I keep hoping one of these days @A-Step-Towards is going to stumble into a few of 'em and gift me one.
    For that matter, he might end up stumbling into George's very axe!

    Just get a hi res image and make one. Easiest way, right?

    Yeah, you're right, just print it! But I'm from the 70's and thus still hung up on the idea of the "actual" promo decal from the day. Last I saw of one of those on the internet, it was $25 and already sold. Could be a good image to knock off, actually, to the extent it is (I think?) derived from a classical image?

    @mellowinman do you have a Dark Horse sticker in your collection?

    Here's what I'd put it on to up the 70's vibe.

    Biting a bullet or any other hard metal object is probably not good for you dental health. Just exercising concern here...a bit.

    I absolutely do not, but in a very bizarre coincidence, I am playing 12 string and singing 2 songs in a local Dark Horse Harrison Tribute Show next Friday! They are letting me do 2 songs; "Cheer Down," and "While my Guitar Gently Weeps." I said, "thanks so much guys for inviting me," and they said, "thanks for inviting yourself!"

    It's going to be fun. I will look around for a source for those stickers.

    I'm pretty sure Smooth Jazz AF is a thing.
