    A lot of white out, a lot of free time, and brain cells to kill.

    How psychobilly...except it's not an upright bass, but they did paint on a little coffin upright bass in the background to make up for that fact. :p

    Looks like they covered it in fake zebra fuzz, but it could also just be the picture quality. Either way... fugly.

    Theres too many of these threads.. :p If someone wants to colour in a bass they bought with their money, by all means go ahead. That's not a stock Fender colour, so they have to get creative ;)

    Well the paint (if it's paint) pattern doesn't really match the pickguard, but it's funny.

    They could've done much worse, too.
    And what if it was a Fender? One less doesn't make that much difference with the million others out there :rolleyes: :p

    zydeco, of course. :)

    I suppose possibly Goth, but the fur doesn't really fit that.

    Prolly just a Squier under there, but here's a painful thought...

    Some dude, after a six-pack of beer, not realizing he had his hands on an all original mint 64 J in a rare Duco finish, decides he doesn't like "that damn girly color", picks up a tube of liquid nails adhesive off the workbench and rips some fake fur off of an old halloween costume... the rare matching headstock gets the same treatment...
    :eek: :bag:

    i actually want it...badly lol. i'd say it belongsin a psychobilly band (if there was an electric bassist ina psychobilly band) or an offshoot of AFI or Danzig or something.
