    I keep meaning to blast my bass case with stickers, but I can never find stickers of the bands I like (either I have to buy them *BOO* or are hard to find naturally unless I go to a concert or something?). Anyway, even when I do have a sticker, I always think twice about doing it. Should I care that the stickers I have sometimes are bands I don't even dig or don't even know? It's a moral dilemma. :eyebrow:

    Maybe because it's just the starting of it that discourages me.

    So...

    Encourage me! Let's see them stickered up cases! :hyper:

    Stickers add armor to your cases... I don't have a ton on my stuff cept for a couple of "fragile" airline stickers that I never bothered to remove... and a couple or so on my rack case..

    I never used to put stickers on mine, but recently i started getting stickers from bands i filled in for, or stickers of bands whose members i have played with before. I guess just a way to be nostalgic

    Here's the case from my now-retired Jazz that was my main bass from my late teens to early 30's...

    I put stickers on an old Fender case for more practical reasons-
    One time, we're playing an outdoor fest with a few bands...
    I break an "E"-string, no problema, I have extra sets in my case.
    So I yell to the stagehand, "...get my case, it's the black one sitting over there".
    Well, he looked confoozed. So I go over & there's about 50 black cases all lined up.

    J-Rai has the right idea.
    ;)

    Those cases are awesome, bass case or not! It totally looks much better when the stickers start to overrun the blank spaces. It's like a memorabilia collage or scrapbook. Plus, they always seem to make good conversation pieces:

    "Oh, you've been there? Me too!"
    or
    "Oh, you know that band?"

    Okay, I've done some thinking and I guess it's okay to put stickers on that are not necessarily relevant or bands that you even know or like, but when you do get a sticker you really like or support or think is cool, that's when you start to overlap the ones you don't really dig all that much... eh? :D

    I'll take some pics tonight too...

    Atlanta, GA!

    Thanks man!

    That pic is about a year or so old, actually that case is a bit more stickered now.

    ...and the inside is a bit more organized with foam.

    ZERO/Haliburton/Anvil cases are indestructable! :bassist:
