    Hello all. I've been watching a few Ramones documentaries, and I've been planning to get a MIM Precision bass (I've decided to leave the world of anonymous cheap basses), so I've plumped for one with a maple neck and a black guard on a white body. However pics of such things are few and far between (except pictures of Dee Dee and the guy out of Radiohead), so I need your help to push me onto the final plateaux of GAS (and maybe get some sexy wallpaper). I love that basic 'doing it RIGHT!' functionality of a P, and i love that colour scheme the most, though sunburst with a rosewood board and torti plate is a close second.

    Thanks in advance, show us your lovely basses!

    Josh Newton of Every Time I Die just got a lefty Sandberg P in that color scheme, specifically because of the Ramones. He posted it on his twitter @jnewton a couple days ago, you're welcome to search for it.

    I'm a twitter-o-phile so I might be some time... Thanks for the heads up though!

    It's not a great pic, but here are my two Precisions with white bodies with maple boards (although one is a PJ, but you can get the idea). Both of these basses are 2008 models. One is a USA Std P and the other is the Tony Franklin sig. I love the look and sound of a white P bass and maple fretboard.

    I currently live in Edinburgh, but my family home is in Dunblane, so still pretty local huh? Love that GH controller, though I wish they had atleast tried to put a bridge on it! Doh!

    Loving the other pics btw guys!

    Love that Simonon replica!
     
  10. I love rock band, and I own one of those.

    In fact, the "thumbrest" on that has been taken off, sanded down, and attached to my real Fender Jazz. It's fantastic and the perfect size to fit between the bridge pup and the pickguard

    Thanks for the pics! Cool punk rock stuff. I'm also interested in black and maple... and that gets its own fanclub!
