    Hey, could all you people with LED's post pics? i've never seen a bass with LED's. i really want to see what they look like unlit, and lit up.

    thanks.
     
  2. Hmmm. I have no artistics pics of my basses with the LEDs on, so all I can do is post this link to lots of examples for now: Sims Custom LEDs

    One side note (pun intended)... I've noticed that when the side LEDs are off, it's the equivalent of having no side markers at all. Just a consideration for you.

    Here's a pic of an Alembic I used to own that had red side LEDs. Now I have a different Alembic with red side LEDs and another Alembic with amber side LEDs. Pix of those are not quite as good as this one.

    Here's one of the not so good pics. This is in a room with the lights off and LEDs on both basses glowing.

    Malthumb, in the first pic, are the red LEDs off? I'm having red one put in for the side dots on a bass being built, and I want to make sure they'll be plenty visible (like those ones are) when they are not turned on.

    They were on. The lights in the room were on, too, so some of the luminescence is blunted.

    Peace,

    Ok. Got any pics of them when they're off by any chance?
