    So this is TalkBass. The premier internet forum for all things bass. We have beginners and gods of rumble alike on this forum. In our logo, we have the image of an electric bass guitar. It appears to be a P body, with either two single coil or mini humbuckers. It has two knobs and no switch. The headstock is Fenderesque. What I want to know is, what on earth is this bass?

    It's the mythical "non-infringing" design...

    Well we know it's not the mothman.


    But it should be.

    I believe the intent was that it could be a variety of different basses. Just like you can’t tell what brand or model the DB in the logo is. It leaves it up to interpretation.

    It's pretty small so I can barely make it out but I always thought it was a Stacked Knob Jazz bass.

    That could explain it, but I zoomed my screen in on it and I'm pretty sure it's not offset like a J.

    for goodness sake don't change it, there were nearly riots when the forum software got a necessary upgrade.

    who can say what levels of frothing hysteria our more change-resistant members would be thrown into by a slightly different logo...

    It also doesn't have a tailpiece, bridge, or end pin. :D

    Well, we know it has four strings, and that's what matters. *ducks*

    That's absolutely what it is. We're huntin' for the best bass or metal, boys and girls.

    I always thought it was meant to depict a freshwater largemouth bass on the left and the somewhat larger sea bass on the right.

    Sheesh!

    Maybe this is could be a subject for one of those luthier build-off challenges that I see posted. "Make the TB Logo Bass" 1. Must include pic. 2. must be this blue; RED 30, GREEN 54, BLUE 104...
