    I detest tort.

    I've hated it ever since I first saw the sausage coloured atrocity. I've hated it before knowing hating it was a thing.

    What is that thing??? It looks like a pepperoni!

    Its magnanimous ugliness is further exploited when put on a sunburst bass.

    Disgusting. An ugly colour and an ugly pickguard. Brilliant.

    Sunburst and tort. Boy, have I NEVER seen that before.

    Admit it. SBNT is overused. I don't care if it's classic (besides, the real classic is honeyburst with a white pickguard). Sometimes the ancients get it wrong, like communism.
    There are so many people doing the SBNT combination, it takes off any personal aspect of your bass. It's simply too common.

    But I digress.

    I've recently been seeing tort on good combinations on the "Paging all members of the Order of the Tort" thread by @BusyFingers. Such as this one: upload_2017-1-30_19-34-16.png
    And of course, black with tort:

    This thread might have changed me to what I might call a tort agnostic.

    Now I am weak. I challenge you, tort lovers, to make me like tort. Show me everything you got.

    (Don't try your luck with SBNT, I still hate it).

    EDIT: I will reply with a negative emoji for every suggested bass I find ugly. :smug:

  7. I'm sending a team over to rescue you before this cult gets a hold on you.

    If you're even toying with the idea of adding Tort it does not bode well and help is available.

    I agree. The fiery death of a star look > half chewed pepperoni.

    I'm with ya on this one. I might be able to stomach tort on a white bass, but that's about it. And my first choice would be black. The green one you posted looks kinda cool too, but naaah.... I'd still go with another color.

    Okay, okay, we're getting there. I have to say, it looks pretty nice. I love the grey tinge on the bass. Contrasts well with the warm-coloured pickguard.

    Well I did sell that one last summer to a guy in Ottawa, Ontario. Got bit by the Dingwall bug with a SJ/P. Couldn't keep 'em all. But they're great basses.
