Shuker Mega thread

Recommended Posts

I had this made back in 2009, finally got some naked pics of her on the bed. The Dirty Minx.

Check out her pearl inlays, they look like extra frets from a distance.

Cheers Dude, she really is dreamy to play.

Of course it's all thanks to you and your 33 inch vision! :D

I can't take the credit dude, I think Rickenbaker might have to, I think they were the first ones to do something close to 33"...

So its been a good while since I last posted anything here, so I thought I'd share some updated pics of my beloved in action.....

Recording in the home studio...

Playing Live opening for some of the biggest name in South African music....

And a Promo shot for Markbass....

Love this bass soooooo much! If I was able to have it rebuilt, the only changes I'd make to it would be Delano pups instead of the Bartolini's, and to have blue LED's down the neck instead of red ones. As it is though, its just too good to part with. Love it.

Regards
G!

Cant stop grinning. Rubbish iphone pics below.

Thought I'd stick my baby up here:



Although I have a nasty habit of deciding to sell stuff I put up on here, let's hope not in this case :) .
