    Please post a photo of what you consider to be a very nice looking bass. That is all.

    Well, you are not mentioning, "a nice looking bass that you own".

    So, here is a photo of what I consider a very nice looking bass that I do not own.

    (Fender slab body.)

    By the way, every bass I've seen posted so far has been very nice looking!

    Great looking doesn't necessarily mean great playing.

    For sheer looks, my vote goes to the sweeping badassery of the Mockingbird - as ergonomically imperfect as it is.

    Out of my own, I'm always visually drawn to this LP inspired Fernandes Monterey - the ergonomics are quite good.

    I should have given credit - that fine bass is a Sadowsky. Wish it were mine.

    I can't pick just one, and this photo doesn't do them justice. But these three are top of the heap in the looks dept. over here (and they're fun to play, too).

    Contender for the best looking bass I've ever owned would be this '80 Tokai Jazz. Brazilian board, all that wear was natural (I sold it like a dummy)

    Probably the best looking bass I've ever seen would be a fretless Wal

    Best looking famous bass? Herbie's LPB Jazz

    Not mine, but I love this one (a Stenback). I think it belongs to someone here on TB.
