Do anyone think this is a cool Mod? darkstars on an esp

  1. well the title says it all really. obviously this is not something that i will do soon.. cus there are no 5-string darkstars yet.

    so what do think of this idea? and what pickguard do you like best?

    I like the one with the dark pickguard. Equipped with a couple of EMG-Js that bass should kick butt :)

    it looks like you could cut someone with that bass...
  4. the dark PG bass looks sinister!
    i would guess that would be killer for some massive bottom end!
    btw, what kind of music do you play? i tried to check out the links in your sigs, but they botjh go nowhere...the reason i am asking is because IIRC ds pickups aren't great for clarity, but will provide huge low end...i'm not sure if thats what you are looking for or not...but the mod would look cool!
  5. thanks for the comments guys

    oh sorry bout the bad links, we have a problem with the server at the moment. well i play mostly death/thrash metal. but i do play funk, rock and other kind of music aswell.. the sound i'm after would be something like smooth, fat and punchy..

    btw. the dark pg is suposed to be tortshell and and the otherone cream pearl..

    I would love to get my hands on a PG like the darker one...where would I get one cut like that? I have an ESP LTD F-255, so it would be perfect!!!

    The one with the tort guard looks like it would be PERFECT looks-wise for metal! As for the tone for metal, I cannot comment on that because ive never had the pleasure of playing a bass with Darkstars... I hear they are amazing though.

    The pickups would cost as much as the bass :p but it looks cool and would sound good.

    You've got to be kidding, man. :eyebrow:
  12. well i'm planning to cut one myself, the shape is something i have drawn myself, so if you want one you have to make one. Feel free to use the shape though.. ;)

    I realize that i'm not to hot on the grammer, but considering it's my second language i think i manage.. :meh:

    How about spelling sentence and grammar correctly. And BTW, the letter "I" is always capitalized. Of course, I don't mean to bitch.

  15. i like the tort. not a big fan of the cream. F is a sweet bass shape!

    what would really be sweet is a mirror pickguard... and a mirror truss-rod cover to match! Mmmmmmmmm...

    as for the darkstars, i can't comment. they'd sound absolutely sweet though!

    I, personally, am a fan of the cream coloured pick-guard, but like the others have said, the red tort is definatley more sinister looking.
