    Heavily relic'd hardware, never been cleaned, gigged with biweekly, thrown into the drum kit on a number of occasions...

    Yeah, it's ugly, and I've tried to make it that way!

    Okay, I'm sorry, but you guys have totally failed to provide wat has been asked for. No ugly basses so far. Well, okay, maybe the toilet seat bass... ;)
     
  4. Hell half the time I think its ugly
    half the time I think its awesome.
    A bass only the luthier could love?

    Def got a good chuckle out of this one. Sounds/looks like something I would do in years past.
     
  7. OMG! I really laughed at this comment. So funny!!! Thanks for the laugh!
     
  8. Dig the bass.
    Unfortunately, stickers on instruments is like my biggest hate.

    Is this a joke? I posted the same thread like 3 weeks ago and it got insta-locked.

    If a '92 fury was your first bass, you're WAY too young to be an "aging" hipster... :) Great bass though....

    ha! I'm in the later half of my 30's now. the aging process has definitely begun.

    got that bass brand new when I was 15, did that crap to it when I was 16.

    Poor thing won't even leave the house...the poor thing. :(

    Even the other basses won't play with 'em.

    I guess I am also a sucker for ugly. Here are 2 of the most horrible looking basses I ever owned. Unique absolutely yes, pretty?, no.

  18. My MIJ Yamaha BB300 that my buddy (TB member Hentor2112) gave me as a box of parts. He originally wanted to paint it, and didn't like how the paint came out, so he decided to give it to me.

    I put it together, then a few years later I added the bridge pickup from a MIM Jazz I believe, using a hole saw because I was too impatient to do it properly with a router. I'm sure when I added the pickup I wired it wrong, but I love the sound! A few years later I added a BadAss II bridge. Top of the ol' heap for me, this one.

    Yes, twocargar made out on that transaction with the Yamaha BB300. If he dies first, I get that Yamaha back (aka The Beater Bass.) If I die first first, he gets my 1975 Rickenbacker 4001 (that was actually his at one time, after it was originally mine. I got a second chance with that bass!)

    Someone needs to ask twocargar about his Bank Robber acoustic guitar.
