    Yes, you read that right....any interesting inlay bling on the backside of your basses?
    Post'em here please. I'm guessing this will mostly be ABG's?

    Here's mine:

    It's a painting, not an inlay. Can I still get an honorable mention?

    What about if the inlay on your backside is a tattoo?

    i know what you're looking for, B, but this is "backside" stuff (art?) even though it's not inlayed:

    That would be a custom Santiago ‘onlay’. Bravo! :thumbsup:
    Since you can’t print white do you paint part of the neck plate white just for the areas under the clear?

  15. When I say the title my first thought was 'well, I have had splinters in my backside'.
    Since most of us don't see the back the lightning holes make more of a difference.
    No harm in the inlays and I suppose they are kinda neat if you do see them.

    This bass is off-topic. It belongs in a thread on belly-rubbin' basses.

    I wanted to point out the inlayed stilt-plug laid bare by... a belly-rubbin' bass.
