Gears or no gears??? Before I drill a hole in my bass
I like the idea, but its a beautiful bass the way it is. tough call.
Here is my other bass next to it, I agree, tough call.
It looks good...but, I agree that you already have that on your other bass. Both of them are beautiful instruments. I would NOT put them on. That is a beautiful piece of wood.
+1. Or is it -1, since it's a negative?
In any event, I vote "don't". I think it's the kind of thing you'd like for a while, but regret later.
Hyperglide or Uniglide? Hyperglide will provide smoother glissandos, but Uniglide will yield a beefier bottom end.
Me, I'm a SunTour chamfer guy, although the Sachs beveled teeth perform well too.
I say no.
I'll go against the mainstream and vote for yes.
That will set Yours apart from the mundane masses of similar instruments and at the same time show your love for fixed gear bikes (I guess).
Over the years I've adopted the mantra: "rather regret what You did than regret what You didn't do" .
Since we're about the same age, I'd say it'll probably come to You as well at some point in the future .
My saxophonist said no, so i took the time I would have used for mounting them to make him a reed. The no's have it!
Why not get them cut in vinyl, put the vinyl on. Same look, reversible if you don't like it.
Use double stick tape.
I should point out the reason I said no is because it's such a lovely instrument. Otherwise, it's a cool idea. I just really like the simple beauty you have going already.
I vote yes. But I would also put two smaller versions of those gears on the headstock
And +1 to what T-Bird said
