Beautiful wood, paint jobs, stains, lacquers, high-end electronics, 24k Gold hardware... it's all lovely to look at. But I have found that for whatever reason, I have a great admiration for basses only a mother could love. Preferably one with a great story behind it. I tried to start a FB page for these, but I did something wrong and I don't seem to know how to fix it. And TBers are more likely to crow about their favorite beater bass that fits them like a glove and gets That Tone that they've been searching for anyway. Please post your stories behind your favorite ugly ducklings - pre OR post facelift, and include a pic or two. I will start below. I hope this gets a lot of attention - the stories can be lots of fun! EDIT: So this turned into a club! If you post your Bajo de Cyrano here and you want a number to join the club, lemme know.
