    Hey guys, check out my new bass! It has a Warmoth neck and body,metalflake paintjob that sparkles like ruby slippers! I love the sound of my Spectors so I went with Emg p/j pickups with an Aguilar OBP1 preamp wired at 18volts. A Spector style bridge and A brass nut. It sounds awesome! So what do you think?

    Interesting, love those flames. Without the sparkles and with a fender shaped headstock would be perfect for me.

    Enjoy your TB!!!!!

    I really like the body and flame job. I only wish the headstock was a bit different. Maybe more gibson'esque and bulkier.

    Flames are definitely not my thing...but the sparkle makes it cool. ;) Not diggin the small headstock, but overall I think it's a cool lookin bass.

    I normally don't care for T-Bird style basses, but I really like that one. Very nice. :cool:

    I have to agree on the headstock comment, but the rest is one sexy piece of bass

    I'm with you Ryan... I've never really been a fan.


    Between THIS t-bird, and the Orange 5-string T-bird w/ the Wenge neck that someone posted a week or two ago, my view of the t-bird is changing...

    Rather, I think the t-bird is a pretty good basis for some great custom looks.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Most T-Birds, to me, are pretty boring looking basses(usually either sunburst or black), but then, until now, I had never seen one that somebody "pimped out", either, for lack of a better term. I didn't realize the potential that one could have, I guess.
