My 5 string Ibanez GSRM25 Mikro Bass, that I guess still qualifies as black, even if some grey and silver visual mods have been added, which is strung with the 5 thickest strings of an Ernie Ball Bass VI string set, gauge .090 to .030, and tuned in F# standard tuning, as in 2 half steps above regular standard E 4 string bass tuning, meaning F#1 to D3, and got it's 2 stock J pickups wired in series. Poplar body and a bolt on maple neck with a jatoba fretboard :

5-String-GSRM25-Mikro-Bass-030620-small.

 

And my 4 string Ibanez GSRM20 Mikro Bass, in regular standard E tuning, with a set of P/J EMG Geezer Butler pickups installed, though the Geezer P pickup is soon to be replaced for a DiMarzio Model P, even if I guess it could be argued that it isn't really all that black anymore, despite that actually being it's original stock finish. Mahogany body and a maple bolt on neck with a rosewood fretboard :

I do like black basses, here's my old partscaster Squier Mustang.

I had a black VM Mustang and a silver sparkle Mikey Way signature Mustang and took the best bits from both and ended up with a one-off black Squier Mustang with matching headstock. It was nice for a short scale, but lives in a mate's studio now. And someone out there has got a silver sparkle Mustang with a maple neck. That was nice too :) 1935790891_unnamed2.jpg.517a4ef8c6050073e3c8f20a3e2c01ec.jpg IMG_3145.thumb.jpeg.a0691e7c9e4772090635a85936370e97.jpeg

My 70’s Tony Franklin, best fretless I’ve ever owned, sustain by the ton, tone to die for, fast and easy action

My '99 Yamaha BBG5s owned from new. It was my only bass for 10 years. The gold hardware has worn to a very silvery gold so looks really nice now.

An old picture in front of my old bi-amped 4x12 & 2x15 rig. 😄

My Hofner Ignition Club bass. Absolutely brilliant basses for very little money. Custom made pickguard and control plate, with bakelite knobs and LaBella flats. Thumptastic 🙂
