    Since everyone is showing off their Warwicks, Zon´s, their beauties etc. Why not show us your ugly basses, your junk basses etc.?

    Here goes mine:

    I´m proud to present my '93 Encore P-bass copy.
    Someday to be defretted etc.

    I gave this black VMI Cruise P+J bass...weighs a ton, has a single sticker on it, that was actually brought out of retirement today to be strung BEAD, tuned CGCF. It's a hunka hunka burning CRAP.

    Mine doesn't compare to Nick's, but here is the Junkiest stuff I've got. :D

    Click here to see MY junk.

    I just got the one on the right Friday night. Someday maybe I'll be able to save up for that Samick I've been drooling over.

    What in the world is wrong with PhotoPoint ? Anybody else having trouble ?
     
  7. Yeah, I tell ya what, that bird's eye maple is SO junky. It totally ruins the already junky StingRay 5. And what's with the G&L? Those things are are only known for their horrible sound and extremely poor construction. ;) :D

    Okay....so it's all I've got. So I guess that qualifies it as my junkiest and best at the same time. :D
