    I dont have them on my basses, because I like them too much. I might get a cheaper one and put some on though.

    Yeah, I like my stickers more than I like my basses too. Where can I get some cheap stickers?[​IMG]

    I wouldnt put any stickers on my good bass. put a bio hazerd sticker on my kramer. but like a cheap crap sticker? no way.
     

  5. heheh:p i love ambiguity.
     
  6. stickers are mutilation imho.
    the holy instrument must stay clean and pure.
     
  7. Most ppl put stickers on there and think "yeah what a cool idea", and this happened to my guitarist, he got bored, took them off polished up the guitar and it looks a million dollars.

    Plus i can never find a good sticker

    ;)

    Stickers would only cover up the beautiful quilted wood tops of good basses.
     
  9. well..imho the only people who put stickers on their bass are people who have a cheap-ass bass..

    i would never (!) put any stickers on my J-bass... that's pure, uncensored blasphemy.. :(
     
  10. No way man! Stickers look terrible. My bass is completely free of any type of identifying markings. Just shiny shiny black... now if only I could get rid of those freakin finger smudges!!
    Maybe if someone had a professional make a personalised sticker design, say a logo or symbol of their band or something like that, it might look good.
     
  11. *** is going on with that poll?? 65535 people have voted for carrot cake stickers??
    Man, that carrot thing is really getting out of hand :D
     
  12. I voted 'stupid'.

    A couple of reasons:

    1)I like to see basses in their natural state, whatever that may be.

    2) I'm nearly 50 and am considered by most to be a boring old f*rt.

    (Having said that I'm an old f*rt, I saw a Rock 'n' Roll band who's bassist played a DB painted flourescent green + loads of stickers. It looked great!)

  14. I personally wouldn't cover my instrument in stickers.

    unless I happened to feel like it one day, but you always end up taking stickers off of anything you stick them on' and you how much it sucks to remove that left over sticker residue.

    But if you could find cool stickers maybe,but I would generaly say it is ugly.

    I put a one sticker on my J-bass. It simply says "Don't be a Dick". (I got it at a Raider game :D

    The FF and Static-X stickers are gone, replaced by a RATM sticker. There is a Shaft(;)) sticker next to the Yin Yang now, too.

    I have 2 stickers on my Precision: (a good bass for stickers)

    -A UFO sticker (UFO makes army issue parachuting pants, which are a main part of my wardrobe! :D )

    -A sticker that says PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN that I made from a warning label and cemented onto my bass.

    I think I have the perfect amount of stickers, and Im not gonna add any more. I am extremely proud of the cool stickers I have.
     
  20. Who's the man with all the ladies?

    SHAFT!

    You damn right.

    :D:D:D

    EDIT: Notice how the Yin-Yang is being worn away by the bracelets on my picking hand:
