    If you were to ever get on the cover of bass player magazine what bass would you have on the cover? Also let's get some pictures of what pose you'd use. This is the best I could come up with for now...

    You know, you'd think that would just look so over used...

    ...and yet you make it look so awesome.

    As for me, I'd either want my Spector, and just showing off it's awesome awesomeness, or a black P bass with white paisely on it (as I've been dreaming of for awhile) and like hold it over my shoulder (I guess would be the best way to describe it).
  3. i would be posing with a keyboard, just for the hatemail to follow :)

    Don't have any good 'pose' pictures with it though. I like this pose:


    Though I'd be scared to death to try it with 3 basses like that :eek:

    Has this thread been done before? It seemed like a new idea but you never know.. I don't wanna clog up the boards.

    If I was featured in BP, this is what I'd want on the cover:
    (I used to own that Wishbass!)

    It's too late for me to pose and take any pics but it would be with Valenti #016 & #022

    Don't know the pose, but it would be with a '70's P-bass.
  10. I wish I still had dreads, I would want a picture of me banging my head playing live. Somehow pictures of people with short hair headbanging just looks like they are constipated.
    Of course it would be my beloved (bedraggled) Ovation Magnum.
    I seriously have no idea how this bass still works after the last 15 years of abuse.

    I second the motion. All those in favor say I....love carrots.
  12. Ha ha! Absolutely! great pic!

    Is that a problem with red eye Shearstown?.... or are you wearing some spooky contact lenses to match your bass colour? :D

    I'm not sure on the pose, but it would have to be with either my Warwick Corvette or my Yamaha 6-string TRB.

  16. here we go, I found an old picture of me in my old Band "Lungbutter" from the early 90's [​IMG]
    My shirt says what else, "Electric Bass".
    BTW any other band you see with that name owes us money.

    It would have to be with my SX with the logo prominent just to piss off all the boutique bass owners.
  18. I LOVE CARROTS! hahaha best picture ever.
  19. One or both of my Reverends. Or maybe an Ashbory for yuks.
