  1. Just post some pictures of basses that you find to be really ugly, i think that should be an interesting thread to read and look at. I really think alot of singlecut basses are ugly, but some or really nice look. just post some pics of basses you think are ugly

    OHH man, you crossed the line on that one, some type of elite bass group is going to infiltrate your house, then put you in a guitar center with only dudes who plays SRV all the time and say they have better gear at home, it'll be awful. ;)
    That BC Rich thing is awful though, the bass doesn't look 1/2 bad by itself.
     

  3. In all honesty I would murder for that bass. Sweet sweet J bass....

    I don't like these types, but some do, and that's cool. But they do nothing for me.

    Funny. Bryan was kidding, and I'm not when I say I'm not fond of J basses, in nearly any color or wood combination.

    I like most Conklins - but those things you just post are just about the fugliest looking things I've ever seen!
     

  10. Actually i agree with you. :)

    Well, you've got the good sense to like P basses and Ricks.

    I am on the fence about these, sort of cool, but still a little ugly.

    Different strokes I guess.


    Found this quasi bass shaped object in the gallery, not really sure if it is one though

    :D
     
  15. Ugly is in the eye of the beholder, but here goes:

    Basses that look like a Gibson SG guitar
    Telecaster styled basses
    Danelectro Longhorn
    Any Les Paul styled bass
    Hofner Beatle basses
    Any single cut bass, with the exception of this gorgeous little sweetheart:

    Do you find it at all odd you're not a fan of the Les Paul or Telecaster shape, or single cuts, but that bass is all three?

    I agree with all of these:


    My one exception for single cut basses: Embelisher's SC - the one in his avatar. That one is a tastefull thing of beauty - but most SC's I hate.
     
  18. i'm the opposite... i don't like p-basses :bag:

    it's just the split pickup bothers me for some reason.
