Its all a question of cool

  1. What bassist has the best looking guitar, in other words who has the coolest guitar????!?!?!?!

    I think it has to be Sam RIvers' Warwick Streamer Stage I with those orange fret lights. IT RULES!! I wish I'd had that idea first

    ...I love it!
    Way back when, I argued it was more difficult playing a ONE-string vs. any multi-string instrument!

    BTW, Sam Rivers plays guitar? I thought he played sax & flute?
    :p
     
  4. either les claypool's four string carl tompson with tremolo or alain caron's signature f bass

    Quite a contrast - from playing a 9 stringer, to a 1 string. No one can tease him for playing too many strings this time.

    Beefcake the Mighty -- back in his Scumdogs of the Universe days, he played what looked to be a Steinberger with a steak for a body (check it out on the Tour De Scum video). I have also seen him with an Ibanez Iceman bass (ICB500) -- very cool!

    You're right, by golly!

    To the person who did this, good one! :)
     
  17. :D
    I admit responsibility for that one.
    I did it using Livepix and Paintshop pro4.

    here's the original Bill Dickens pic- you might notice the real bass he was playing had a few more strings-
