Chicks dig bass players- new evidence discovered

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by The Mock Turtle Regulator, Oct 1, 2002.

  1. on the cover of the current issue of SW magazine- a snobby free property publication distributed in south london;

    not bad going- even an old bald dude like him can score himself a scantily-clad blonde:D
    (interesting fretting arrangement on the bass...)

    the painting is "An artist and his muse" by James McNaught.

    Ponder, anyone knows what bass that is? The headstock reminds me of Peavey.. :confused:

  3. I don't really care whether we can "get chicks" or not; groupies are for bands like Motley Crue :rolleyes:

    lee sklar?

  5. :D , yeah, I thought Lee Sklar and Peavey too, or maybe the John Entwistle Warwick or Status Buzzard. the bass body is vaguely like a Danelectro Longhorn or a Travis Bean:confused:

    as for the "groupies" comment, I posted this as I found the picture quite bizarre- I don't know if that's meant to be a bass- and I'd like to know more about it and the artist.
    the magazine in question always features interesting, quite "arty" paintings on its covers.

    I thought it would be amusing to crudely misinterpret it, linking it to the infamous "chicks dig bass players" Talkbass T-Shirt slogan:p

    It's a look into the future. That's Fieldy circa 2050 and that woman has some serious cellulite on her thighs. Hoooooooo. IHOP apparently stays in business.
  11. Frist...That is a killer looking bass
    Second...I can't get girls if I payed for them. Oh well just my luck
    Third...I want that bass

    Isn't that Anna Nicole Smith?
  14. with the dodgy inconsistent string spacing and um, "organic" body outline, that bass could be a Wishnevsky (maybe that's the revered Wish himself playing it?).

    let's see...blonde, well built, and hanging around with a very old guy- you could be right.
    she's found a new sugar daddy:D

    Lookie lookie, here's what I found from Status' homepage. A Buzzard II:


    Does it match or does it match? :D

    You don't know how true that statement is. she was the drummers girlfriend..... kinda creepy.
  17. re. Status Buzzard II, I was interested in the model of Overwater bass that Craig Adams uses (Sisters of mercy, The Mission, The Cult- currently doing a short tour with them)-
    and the thunderbird-meets-precision body shape of the Buzzard II seems to have been derived from it-


    and John Entwistle turns out to have been an endorser-

    -with the Buzzard I being a copy of the Warwick design, (and the Status Groove being Stingray-influenced) are Status turning into copycats? :p

    groupies dont tend to be the sharpest tools in the shed, so play them a simple slap riff, and they will flock to you(or at least thats whats supposed to happen) :D
