    The Gulf livery is the best color scheme ever devised, IMNSHO. :bassist: I've been thinking hard about doing that to my '81 911.

    Hi,

    Sorry, this is not a bass and not exactly ugly, but I thought I'd share anyway.

    My luthier friend calls this his "Scrap-o-caster" because he literally built it from scraps of wood laying around his shop (even the fingerboard), glued and bolted them together, filled it with awesome electronics, and it plays like a dream!

    Steve says, "It's got all Seymour Duncan (magnetic) pickups: mini humbucker, hot stack, P-Rail. The first two with series/parallel switches, the third with Seymour Duncan's proprietary coil-switching pickup ring. Then Graph Tech Guitar Labs's "acoustiphonic" piezo system in the bridge for even more sounds. Plug in a stereo cable and send the signal to two separate amps for maximum tone from the electric and acoustic signals."

    Talk about a versatile guitar!

    scrapocaster3_zps7b0d0a2c.

    scrapocaster4_zps71b841e7.

    He's also built a few basses and he's a member of this forum too. Sorry, I can't think of his screen name right now. I'll have to call him up and tell him that I'm talking about him. :p


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    BassCliff

    That yellow jazz bass is insane. I would rock that no questions asked (even more so with a b/w checkered pickguard).

    Thanks guys. To each their own I guess... I certainly think its cool (needs new P-ups though). The pickguard is actually chrome, although its hard to see in the pics.

    I agree. I'd be down with that yellow bass.
    Looks great.
     
  13. Please do! All hail the moth!
     
  14. That's brave. The whole thread is brave.

  16. Oh, so it is. I retract my previous statement, it's just awesome :D

    Actually that's nicer than a lot of headless basses I've seen. I love the concept of a headless and would so rock one (or a few) if a) they weren't so ugly and b)not so damn expensive.

    Fortunately this one was really cheap, but needs some TLC. Been in a garage/cellar for 19 years. New jack, new knobs, nearly all the hardware is corroded including frets, strap locks etc. But the neck is straight and nice to play on.
