    A few others have posted family pics and now I finally can post mine. Ya know, now that I have basses that I'm pretty sure I'm not going to give up in a month like I usually do :)

    My fretted Sterling that I got in September from Bass Central and my '96 fretless with birdseye maple neck that I got this week from Ebay (note: The bridge unfortunately ISN'T the old one with the string mutes) I thought it was when I first saw a picture, it just looked like it was missing the pads. But the screws are actually screws that secure the bridge, I'm assuming :) Does anyone know why there are 4 screws up front that do nothing, when the bridge already has 5 screws to secure the bridge?

    *EDIT* I changed it above but.. I bought the fretted at Bass CENTRAL..not Bass NW :) duh..
     
  2. Nice looking basses you've got there. I really like the red color of the fretted one. Sorry, I can't answer your question about the bridge.

    So, a single dad with 2 kids isn't a family? :)

    You don't have a family, you have an army :) What do you tell people (mainly wives/girlfriends) who ask why you need so many 7-stringers? Yea I know you have a few 8's in there too :)

    *lol* My bad :) I know those are JT's, but I just saw the picture and I didn't think I had to look to see who posted it *lol* :)

    JT's basses should be part of a "Getting Started: Things every newbiew should know on their first visit to talkbass" :)

    I dont prefer 7/8 string basses, I like Sixers.

    But they look damn good as I have said before... The only one that looks out of place is the plain white one... looks odd.


    I like 'Big Bertha' (I named JT's double bass...)

    That is prolly really weird to play though...
