    How many of you own basses that are so unique that if one of us saw you playing from 50 feet away we would know who you were even if we had never seen your face?

    For example, JT's double neck, Geoff's dingwall and others.

    I'm not saying that my bass is in the same class as those, but if you see this bass anywhere, you can be sure that I'm the one holding it. Not much chance ther's another one like it anywhere.

    If you think yours is that unique, step up and show a picture!

    the story is.. I'm the only dumba$$ that would bring this for a gig.
     
  3. I think this one is pretty unique, although I've seen similar ones:

    This is my custom 6 string - although the luthier - Neil Kennedy has since made copies using a similar formula (ie body woods etc) - as far as I know mine is the only one that has all the "extras" that he through in because mine was the first bass ordered after he started making them commercially.

    Anyway heres a pic:

    That is my favourite MTD ever and quite possibly the most beautiful bass ever made! - I love that top!

    I think this one should be pretty easy to spot, even from a distance:D

    to Cods:

    If someone had a Conklin 7, I'd say it would be JT's, but that's just cause he has like 40 of em.

    My Godin SD isnt all that common. I think only one other person on TB owns one.
    heres a scrubby pic of me playing my Godin.

    my Blonde Thumb is probably reasonably unique even though it's not one of a kind - but i've got that *and* a GT7 :D
