    the only thing funnier would be if the camera scrolled and up and revealed that it was actually a dude holding the bass

    no, that's about right. i read the caption, then scanned the pic hard to see what it was, only to realize there's a half-naked (what i'm assuming is a) girl holding it. "huh. how'd that get there?"

    my first thought was "no, that's a squier"
  9. Who cares whether it's a Squire or a real Fender, it has a fine paint job!

    Yeah, I thought the paint was too candy apple red and laquer-looking to be vintage anything.

    Oh, and what girl?!

    The first thing I looked at was the grain(or lack of) on the fretboard.

    See, now my question to TalkBass is a simple one, and it is this.

    Which one would you choose, Bass or Girl?

    The bass of course. Who knows what kind of face is looming above that waistline?

    I do, actually.

  16. I'd be careful if you choose the girl. I was there when the photo was taken and trust me you don't want to upset her boyfriend who took the picture.;)

    SO many things wrong with this pic...

    Definitely a Squier, not a Fender. Notice the single ply pickguard. And the white felt under the strap button.
    And a TREBLE clef tattoo??

    We don't need no stinking treble!!

    EDIT - - for extra points for the matching belly jewelry.

    You guys are too uptight about the bass.

    Concentrate on the girl, who cares if thats a treble clef, the fact that she's half nude makes it forgivable :D
  19. That's not a Vintage 70's P bass!
  20. My first reaction was "Of course that's not a '70s P-bass. Why are they making such a big deal about it?"

    My second reaction was "Oh, a generic 'hot' girl with a poorly done, cliche tattoo is holding the bass. Why are they making a big deal about it?"
