    I understand decorating a bass like that, but why do it to a vintage instrument?

    And it cant be for the sound, they gutted the electronics.....

    ::sigh::

    Was cool till I saw it was a 69.

    Peace

    If it came that way from the factory it would have a checkered past.

    What does it matter if it's vintage or not? To quote Brian King from Lord Only "If it improves sound or playability, anything is fair game." I would say the same about looks, if the guy that got it done thinks that looks better.

    I like the checks... Steve Harris had a bass like that, but the stripe is lame.

    The "don't modify a vintage bass" isn't as clear-cut as you think, the bass may have been modified when reasonably new, no-one would have objected to it at the time, and the bass would not have had the vintage stamp on it. But I would cringe a bit if someone modified a really old instrument in that way today.
