    I saw a topic on another Bass ite where people had pics of their basses with Iguanas, cats, dogs, birds, ferrets and one even had a Lobster posed with it! So, I figured I'd let my 2 Pugs ham it up in front of my toys...

  3. I'm definately going to add to this thread when I get ahold of a digital camera. And if I can get my three ADHD dogs to sit still for a few minutes, lol.

    wow <OFF TOPIC> anybody want to try and calculate the value of all the basses combined in that picture </OFFTOPIC>

    I'd get a pic but all my animals of ADHD... I'd pose them.. step back... and they'd be gone.

    Thanks, the dogs love to be in the music room with me when I am practicing, they're funny like that.

    So what do you have about $40,000 worth of basses or what??

    OH MY GOODNESS...
     
  11. Ten custom Conklins in that pic, including a doubleneck, surely that's more than $40,000?

    ;)
     
  12. A melted top is a $3,000 option... 7 strings are some 5 grand before options... Doubleneck...


    I'd say the double neck is worth $18-20,000. But I doubt JT would ever put it up for sale.

    I guess he really like the feel of my bass amp! I'm thinking he got the idea from watching the movie Private Parts (Howard Stern)!

    No one has a monkey playing a 5 string or a turtle thumping on an upright? I'm disappointed.

    Is that a Shure Vocal Master that your cat is resting on?

    Good eye! Yes, my very first bass rig was a Shure Vocal master PA head i picked up for free! It worked pretty well and the reverb was cool! hahahah

    I never used that to play out or anything. I had just started to take lessons and i needed an amp. any amp. I had placed an ad in the local want ads and someone responded with the vocal master. 100watts of crappy solid state power but it worked.

    You will note that in the 2nd picture, my cat is sitting on top of a Hatke HA4000 Bass amp and a Mesa 2x15" cab! hahahah a bit of a progression.
