    Tort Pic's Or It Doesnt Exist thread, you know, like Pic's or it didn't happen!. Are you not feeling the love in your club when you post a picture of your beloved bass all done up with that beautiful Tortoise pickguard that reminds you of a classic 60's and 70's stringed masterpiece?. Ladies and Dude's, Im not judgemental so you are more than welcome to post them here. I'll start. :):thumbsup::bassist: Oh and something Ive recently learned, apparently there is a Tort guard resembling Salami :vomit:. I think Ive seen that one. IMG_2208.JPG fnt.JPG

    I cannot vote either way, because Matchbox are so way totally sweeter than Hot Wheels.

    I believe you have two votes so you can use them both LOL. I figured The Hot Wheels vs Matchbox option was an easy way to say no.

    Hot Wheels are great. Slabs of salami stuck to perfectly good musical instruments isn't so great.

    Still tied after mine too! We got us a real nail-biter here!

    (btw... Hot Wheels are WAY more cooler than Matchbox! Matchboxes are for poor kids! :spit:)

    If I had to guess... I'd say the tortoise ate the salami...

    It just dawned on me that i don't own anything with a tort pickguard! I think this must be remedied before TB kicks me off the forum, crap!

  13. Just the one tort on bass, and the only pic I have access to at the moment. At least one of my six strings has tort.

    I love my Sadowsky MV4, with or without the tort...

    ... I chose Hot Wheels over Matchbox... and, of course, I'll take Marvel over D.C., and Mary Ann over Ginger...

    I like Ginger more personally but the majority of the male population probably chooses Ginger as well.
