    RE the OP, I appreciate the gesture and think it's great, but I'm in agreement about the simplicity thing. Too much going on for us simple folk :).

    This, I think would work but only if the shirt were tort, not brown.

    I like the designs that folks have posted. Any chance they could come in tall sizes? Maybe a charcoal gray? Dark blue?
  9. Like a Squier Signature Talk Bass Bass? :laugh:

    It could have an electronic display pick guard that defaults to Tort when you change the batteries, but you could download any color or design you want, including multiple choices of "Best Electronic pick guard for Metal."
    You could even display video on it. Call up that Christmas Yule Log video and pretend to do a Hendrix type burn.

    Likewise the headstock would have a changable display and could be your choice of any of the above downloadable displays. There would also be several selections of waterslide headstock decals. Including several Fender ones. It would however default back to "Squier by Fender" on a power reset.

    I'm weird about T-shirts but I prefer small graphics on front over left breast and larger (but not too large) graphics on back. I don't like shirts with large graphics on front only with nothing on back, personally.

    Goes back to my fraternity days I think.

    I think a humorous shirt would suit this sites denizens better.

    Maybe the shirt should say "What's this shirt worth?", "Is this a real shirt?", "Show me your bass shirts!", "Best T-Shirt subjective and really doesn't....", "Nobody likes this shirt!", or "NT(t shirt)D" on the back.

    What's the best shirt for metal?
  16. I'd put this on the t shirt and then just print the Talk Bass logo on the tailgate. It has little to do with the subject at hand.... But it would make people look LOL!!! Ok sorry for the self indulgence by showing off my toy.... I vote carrot. LOL!!!

    I'd also go for something more humorous;
    no laurels, a logo as suggested by @Adienn7 ,
    different color: I like purple, but a Sea Blue (like the VW Samba) shirt would also be cool!
    Maybe a baseball shirt in Sea Blue with sleeves in cream?/beige? ...vintage white :D

    But, cool idea @Lumdingo !

    True Metal: None!
    Hair Metal: Something pink
    Power Metal: Something with a dragon and/or wizard
    Doom Metal: Black shirt with monochrome pale avantgarde graphics
    Black Metal: Black with a huge unreadable logo in white
    Death Metal: Can't go wrong with a black shirt, and a zombie head and some blood
    Thrash Metal: White shirt with a colorful war scene
    Speed Metal: No T-shirts, but tank tops

    On the back:

    TALKBASS..... where bassists roar and skinny stringers fear to tread.

  20. I like the original TB logo, but would like more color. maybe the yellow Bass clef, and add some red and blue, like red instruments, and blue word bass.
    I also like the idea of having the main logo on the back of the shirt, and maybe just the bass clef, in yellow, on the front left chest area.
    shirt colors, black and, white.
