    Pretty but not my color either. Call me when it fades to yellow. Slap a black pickguard on it at that point and now your talking.:)

    None. At all.
    The DJ has a non-standard contol plate with a slightly different shape. I recall reading something on the Dudepit about it.

    Yeah and the neck is horribly backbowed ;)


    Its shot with a wide angle lens. Thats why it appears to be curved. Wait... I could be wrong.

    Not bad for a white bass, although I don't really dig many white basses at all other than this Bill Dickens one.

  17. Love the combination of the white finish, rosewood fingerboard, and white block inlays. Very classy.

    I've wanted a white bass ever since I first saw Larry Graham's Moon Bass.

    I'm gassin' for the Lakland, but I'm really a 5 string player. Man, if this came in a 5 string version, I'd be all over it.

    sweet bass ! "I LOVE THE SMELL OF J-BASS IN THE MORNING" i like the ones with the red tortise shell p/gaurd,the two contrasting colors(red/white) make for a nice look. and what the heck is up with that big dudes bass ??(the white one with about 50 strings).it dont care what anyone says thats ridiculous:confused: ,i cannot or will not believe that a bass with that many string is necessary, kinda like going rabbit hunting with an elephant gun. thats what i call "hey everybody look at me" or the famous "can you top this" this is my opinion and my choice,i am not knocking anyone on this site or any of your bass heroes,i just dont prefer basses with an obscene number of strings,if Jaco did all that he did with a beat up,home made frett-less,"distressed" 4 string bass.Then actually using a bass like that to its full potential is an un-attainable goal. what i mean is if Jaco made his 4 string do all that(which is more than any bassist ever did regaurdless of the ## of strings),there is no way that a person and i dont care how good they are,That can fully use a bass like that to its full potential. PS i know i'm gonna get raked over the coals for this little out-burst:bawl: but i just had to say it;)

    Well, the way I look at it is Bill Dickens was playing bass before Jaco was, and Jaco probably dug what Bill was playing back in the day; what's good for the goose is good for this little duckling. It ain't the instrument, it's the music it makes. Besides, I've never hear of a guitar player being told that his six-string has too many strings.
