    Here they are. Here is the tricky part, identify the two basses in front (not the P-Bass clone in back). As you can tell, I like Koa wood.

    Perhaps Ishould offer a prize to the folks who guess right? Maybe an autographed pick?

    I wouldn't know, but I do think you ought to improve your photography techniques a bit, especially when it comes to lighting. How am I supposed to have any idea of what basses they are when I can't see them? Eh? EH!?

    Read and learn, http://www.bunnybass.com/phototips/intro.shtml

    Oh... that was kind of harsh, wasn't it? :oops: Sorry, I'm just bitter because I didn't know the answer! :D

    Are the headstocks cut off for the sake of this riddle?

    I see a Carvin and not sure about the other one;)

    The one in the Right is a Carvin LB70 With Sperzel Locking tuners, H50N Pickups, and Passive Electronics.

    The other one looks like a Washburn Bantam XB

    How was I ?

    Luis-

    Not bad! The passive LB70 is called the LB20. Yes, it has the locking tuners and a Wilkinson bridge. It is a lined fretless with the standard pickups. Pretty darn good guess, though!

    I left off the headstocks on purpose to make the guessing harder! If you guys get the other one, I will be surprised. Let me see if I can get a better picture later.

    My turn. I kept them small so it wouldn't take a long time to load.

    Yeah, but having to look at them Spectors and Sadowsky's causes serious GAS buildup. And I thought I was solving that with a new amp this coming weekend. AARRGGHHH!!!!:D
