    My time was pretty limited so I never got above level "D" (my apologies to the Fender/Gibson crowd), but there are around 200+ photos here and there should be something for everyone (Benavente, Fodera, Nordstrand, Lakland, Modulus, Zon, Brubaker, Smith, MTD, Ric, Pedulla, G&L, Lado, Bee, PRS, Warrior, Ritter, etc., etc):

    ENJOY! :)

    Great! The basses looks great, I really like those Warrior basses so much.

    between, what is the model of Zon bass which appear in the gallery and the neck is made of Maple not graphite? :confused:

    Great service to the TB community! Thank you very much!

    One thing: You accidentally labeled the Moduli (plural of Modulus) as Goulds.

    This is just sooooo beautiful! I's such a clean design, like it grew this way... no frets, no mag pickups, no knobs, just gorgeous wood and strings, black nylons to boot! Marvelous.

  17. Wow! There are alot of great looking basses there. Thanks for taking the pics, Lowell.

    Those Conklins are amazing...

    That Nordstrand NAMM bass is beautiful as well.

    Yea, thanks Lowell. Like I really needed to see more basses that I can't afford. ;)

    Seriously, I really like the hollowbody G&Ls. Yea, I know. Everyone is in to all these high-end burls, but what stood out for me were those G&Ls.

    Thanks a bunch. Those are really cool pictures.
