Black basses

Recommended Posts

Not got one myself, but I figured that we didn't want anyone accusing us of being racist (bassist?) with the white basses thread lol. Plus there are some nice ones out there. So... what you got?

That looks darn fine - been very tempted by these for a while. Once you`ve familiarised with it, would be very interested in your opinions of it.

Very nice!
I had a USA P with the Quarter Pounder P and J Hot Stack in it and it sounded lovely so guess this is the business aswell?

I Love black guitars, but I hate how the black gloss just shows every finger smudge mark going. I'm forever cleaning my guitars....

A Crafter Cruiser Stingray copy....a plank, borrowed of a mate -

My current gigging bass, a Fender 2003 USA P.
Its called Roger (after Roger Waters and the guy I bought it off), never gonna get rid of -

[attachment=64536:25507_13...829189_n.jpg]

A MIM Fender P I used for gigging before I got the US....nice but I didn't like the rosewood fretboard -

[attachment=64537:AmpegFenderSetUp.JPG]

A Squire P I pimped, sold to buy the MIM

[attachment=64538:bass.jpg]

And my late eighties Squier Strat...obviously called Dave -

These both look in perfect condition. Is that a pre-EB Stingray body and a '70s Precision?

It is indeed a pre EB body with a Status neck, but the P is a recent parts build (Jap body, Mighty Mite neck fender hardware and kent armstrong hot vintages) to look like a Roger Waters bass due to my current role in a floyd tribute.

Cheers mate
