    This is as close to pimp as I get:

    Mirrored pickguard with matching mirrored truss rod cover.

    Nothing more fun than keeping fingerprints and dust off of gloss black and mirror. :meh:

    Someday, I'll get around to putting Kent Armstrong lipstick tube pickups in there to complete the mirror-pimpification :bassist:

    Bootsy has better ones than that too - ones with 5 J pickups in it etc, crazy amounts of pickups and knobs...whether half of them are even wried up it doubtful, but it is pretty funny.

    that is disgusting....I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.
     
  13. Someone please tell me that the monstrosity I'm seeing is really just a photoshopped joke...

    However, that Sadowsky is freaking SWEET. I'm not really much for flashy basses, but if you going to do flashy, that's the way to do it.

    That gential bass may be removed. You may want to do it before a mod does...

    Not on my screen. I remember someone mentioning the "wangcaster and mods wouldn't allow it to be shown. I just figured I'd give you heads up before a mod got on you.

    You beat me to that one. I love the tach, and the fact they he put the notes on the fretboard :bassist:

    Anybody got a picture of the marshall amp shaped guitar that Spinal Tap gave away? It had an "extension" speaker that could be added.

    Interviewer: What does the extension cab do?

    Nigel: What all extension cabs do, it makes it heavier.
