    I'd say Dingwall as well. It's easier to photoshop a neck on a pic with high contrast than photoshop both the body and the neck on a smooth pic. Both DW and Sadowsky images show things not seen on the other image: Sadowsky shows the left side of the fan, while the Dingwall image shows legs. Therefore, someone who photoshopped this had to have the original available; it could be that Mike Brignardello provided the image himself to get it photoshopped. Easier than setting up a session.

    Who says they weren't taken on the same day/shoot? There are more changest than just the bass, the position of his left hand/thumb is different, so it's either a lot more than just photoshopping the bass or they were separate takes.

    I would say they are not photoshoped and are two different photos. Almost identical, but many subtle differences. Differences that a photoshopper may not take the time to address. Of coarse. as always, I could be wrong.:meh:
  8. i think they are both "originals"

    they only show half a bass.
    the tuners are perfectly flat in line.
    its easier to photoshop half a bass.

    edit: they may both be legit after further inspection.
    facials, hand placement arent close enough to be duplicated.
    maybe if someone was entwhistle of photoshop.

    I say the dingwall photo is original, because you can see his thumb resting on the fretboard. Sadowsky just photoshopped that out and darkened the jacket.

    Could be wrong..probably am...oh well.

    I think Mike just had photos shot at the same shoot for both Sheldon and me.
