    Really, there are many insightful, interesting, useful threads here on TB, but I am getting really tired of the wholly subjective, thoroughly annoying, "tell me what I should like" threads, or "is round better than oval?" nonsense. How in the world did these folks make a simple choice before the internets? And really, nobody cares what color pickguard you put on your black and maple P bass. Just choose one, then post a pic so we can all admire it!

    ...I'm almost dissapointed that this thread wasn't actually asking our opinions on whether a particular bass makes you look fat.

    Proposed #1 rule of TalkBass:

    If the most likely answer to your posted question is "whichever one you think sounds/looks/plays/is the best" then you probably shouldn't ask the question.

    a bridge cover AND a darkstar will definitely reduce the percieved size of you posteroir.
    (IMHO)

    Well, if the bass you're asking about is the one in your avatar, then I hate to say it...but, yes. It really does make your butt look big.

    Sorry.

    Hate most people? IMHO, you should work this out, although I'm thinking this is tongue-in-cheek.

    What other folks post on an internet message board should at most elicit a hearty chuckle. Take a deep breath, play your bass....


    And that p is phat!

    You mean black, maple, and white oak, don't you?
     
  16. Come on, you guys are wasting time. I will take the obvious superior road and prove with my opinion that it is an indisputable fact that black and maple basses ALWAYS make ones butt look big. How will I prove it? I just did.
