MUSICMAN PORN THREAD

Recommended Posts

I think the humble musicman bass deserves it's own porn thread, they're not the most expensive, but they're definitely some of the best basses you can get short of getting a custom shop!

To get the ball rolling, here's my not so expensive, but still lush sounding and playing SUB bass:





Let's see what other beauties you guys have got, i know there are plenty out there!

Oish, well here's one porn thread I can contribute a little to...


a former mongrel of mine with a status neck


78 Stingray


84 Cutlass I


84 Cutlass II

Wish I had an SR5 HH in black and gold with a status neck and John East MM pre.

Nah I can do better than that. This was my MM family in 2005 before I downsized and bought the Laklands.



The root beer Ray on right now has its original black scratch plate and the pacific Blue Burst SR5 now has Status neck with side LEDs and Nordstrand MM5.3.

(Makes mental note to self - must take some current pictures :huh: )

Nice looking SUB there Sam. Wish I'd got one when they were around - love the painted neck on the SUBs.

Thanks :) i think the painted neck goes really well with the body, though it can get a bit sticky sometimes.

I happen to have a John East MM pre going spare. I was going to use it in one of my new basses but it lacks the input buffers for 2 pickups. It even has black knobs.

Here are mine.

A stingray was the first dream bass i wanted when i first started playing, inspired by Steve Garvey from the Buzzcocks. Eventually got one and didnt stop!

Left to right

Piezo Ltd natural 3 Band , Honey Burst 3 Band, Ash body with Cairns neck and Musicman 2 Band in vintage white, 78 see through brown.
Recently had the necks of the two 3 bands lacquered and they play much better, never really been a fan of waxed necks, they get very sticky when im playing, its just my preference i knwo some bass players who say the opposite.

have you asked if he can drill the holes for you and just send you the neck? thats the hardest part, fitting the neck to the body n stringing up n that is simple, and i imagine would save you quite a bit (doesnt rob charge £100 for fitting it?)

i wish they would do a HH option with the humbuckers next to each other warwick $$ styley, i could never deal with a bass with a pickup so close to the neck, but i bet it sounds great, nice bas :)

As a new 'Ray convert (pics to follow), I am interested in what Sir might be wanting for such a thing?
