Hey, bass forum I bought a GSR200 upon this forums overwhelming support of it as a beginner bass. I love the sound and feel of it, but I find it looks pretty plain. Any suggestions to make it look more punk/used? I'm mainly just looking for aesthitics but hardware/electronics are welcome as well. Mine is black if it matters (my bass that is ) thanks in advance.

Just use it. Don't abuse it, but use it. Maybe put some stickers on it that spell out personal things, or of bands that you obsess over, or maybe even draw a penis on it.

DO NOT BY ANY MEANS SAND IT TO LOOK MORE "WORN IN"

it looks terrible and destroys resale value. I guess if you want to punk it out band stickers as mentioned before, Theres a trick to getting those off that I can't remeber right now, or draw/write something on it.
no sir away a papaya war is on

Just hire Ashton Kutcher =)

Seriously, stickers, textas, paints, whatever. Just express yourself all over your bass as long as you don't damage it that is..

If you have to ask someone else, it's not punk

Honestly, the resale value is so low on a GSR200 that you can really do whatever you want. Stickers as mentioned before would work, I painted the pickup covers on mine if that gives you any inspiration. Just using it will wear it in. If it gets nicks, dents, or scratches, you can just leave them and not repair them to make it look more beaten. Don't neglect necessary maintenance though

I didn't mean to be harsh, but I feel like it's pretty true.

Punk is about doing your own thing, and making lots of noise doing it

One day it'll dawn on you how to customize it, and when you do and it looks bad-ass you'll see what I's saying

Coloured strings and stickers, paints, texters, etc all work.


i dont recommend colored strings i accidently bought some before (red) and the paint stains your fingers and chips off then you just look like a jackass

I do kinda agree with your posts, but you could BE less of an asshole. I mean I know its pretty punk to BE a douchebag and everything, but BE free to do your own thing man. you don't have to BE an asshole to BE punk.

also BE IS A TWO LETTER WORD! srsly

Too bad, I saw TS guitar in a Kansas pawnshop: glittery sequins adored the headstock, it appeared that some sorta prairie barbed wire was wrapped around the upper-horn, and a quote from 'The grapes of wrath' under the pickup that read, I know this … a man got to do what he got to do.
