    Struggling to see any five strings on there. Jimmy Johnson's Alembic for example. First purpose built low B fiver.  

    But is it as iconic as a Stingray or a Precision? Again, I wanted to limit it to 20, and there are just too many 4 strings that sit above any 5 string in terms of being recognisable to most bassists (and musicians). "Iconic" is the key word here, but I totally understand that it's subjective. 😊

    C'mon, you need a Carl Thompson on there... and at least one Ibanez...but I can see you're running out of space....

    I wanted to limit the piece to 20 basses, and I had to decide which ones were more iconic than others. The only iconic Ibanez I could think of was the Musician but it got bumped out in favour of the Jaydee. 

    Others have mentioned models that were "bubbling under" - maybe a second piece is called for, but I think I would struggle to find 20 more basses as iconic as the ones you see here. 😊

    . Are you setting these up to purchase online somewhere?

    Possibly in the not too distant future. I have an Etsy store which has a couple of bits on there at the moment. It's early days but this is something I'd like to pursue as a business. My (long-distant) background is in art and graphic design, and I have rekindled my love of anything graphics-related over the past couple of years, possibly also related to the fact that I haven't done anything bass/gig-wise (on a regular basis at least) for the same amount of time. :)

  4. Thank you for all the lovely comments guys. So I am now in the process of pricing this up as an A2 print, to include P&P. I will have to source and buy some postage tubes but that's something that I've been looking at already as I have other poster designs that I'm trying to persuade people to buy... 😉😆

  5. Entitled "20 Iconic Bass Guitars", I'm thinking of making this available to BC members as a print in either A3 or A2 sizes providing I get enough interest... :D

    This image you're looking at is printed on bog standard A4 and really need to be seen in a bigger format, but you probably get the idea.

    Any criticism welcome... :ph34r: :P

    Robert DeLeo - one of my all time favourite bass players. Kind of like a 90s alternative rock James Jamerson. Just check out the bass lines to 'Sour Girl' and 'Trippin' on a Hole in a Paper Heart', you'll see what I mean. It's just a shame he seems to have had a rather odd looking Hollywood face-lift of some sort...

    Worth posting this then. I think it's up on BC in another thread, but for those unaware... :)

  7. Good to see some positive vibes for STP from everyone. Most of the other opinions I've read are very positive - people seem to be willing them on to do well, probably because they had such a torrid time wih SW. They are my favourite rock band of all time and Scott was the last of the great frontmen IMO. Robert is also my favourite rock bassist, such a groover, and that band are just untouchable when they are at their best. ?

  8. They've bagged themselves a new singer, a former X-Factor USA contestant no less, but don't let that put you off. The guy has the chops to commemorate Scott Weiland's legacy, and has his own thing going on too. I hope they do really well with him, if ever a band deserves a new start, it's this lot.

    Oh, and Robert DeLeo has bagged himself a new bass too - a Nelson custom PJ. Never heard of 'em. ;)
