Almost as odd as watching leftys play right-handed fender basses up-side-down!!

There's that one post-rock band i can't remember, whose guitarist plays a righty Jaguar as a lefty... sure the controls are awkward, but he makes it work! Sometimes that stuff just looks rad and can inspire new models....

(Forgive non-bass pics)

The HIGHLY saught after, Squier Vista Series Supersonic is an up-side-down Jag:


The Mosrite shape is said to have come about from a lefty playing a right-handed strat:


But yeah... holy-Stingrays Batman!!!

Bit of a bump, but this is a pretty cool thread, here are a couple of pictures of my hot pink P-bass copy in action.




They're pretty terrible quality, but they were only from the phone of the drummer's sister's boyfriend.
I'm the far left btw, if you couldn't tell which was the guy holding the hot pink p-bass copy.

You can see my whole setup in this one heh. Ibanez EDA900 and EDB600. Just missing the Boss GT-10B.




Your Ergodyne and my Ergodyne should have bass babies. Mine's name is Horatio.

Long time no see, UG. This thread allows me to trumpet my glorious return with ACTION SHOTS. (Thank you for this, OP)

These are from a show a couple of weeks ago with my side project band. It was a Battle of the Bands at a college amphitheater. Yay for outdoor shows!


I like this one because my hair looks freaking crazy. Like. Medusa hair.


This one is pretty in-character for me. I am a happy bassist.


And here's a picture of the whole band, for context. Plus, you can kind of see my rig. Which is:

Ibanez EDB 600
Ashdown MAG 600RM
Old school Fender Bassman 410 and 115
Les Claypool
Geddy Lee
Robert DeLeo
Flea

Weileder

...Coincidence? I think not.

I'll contribute. I'm still only 17, so most of these are school events. My band play mostly funk/groove/rock.

Newest: A school talent show I did about a month ago.




Jamming at a mates house about 4 months ago




Another school event I did about 8 months ago.




My (growing) rig:
Ibanez/Soundgear SRX360? bass
Fender Rumble 150

And before I got the Rumble I played through my Roland Cube30x guitar amp :/

In the beginning we had Amy, the Ibby. She made me happy



But after a tragic accident, she was held together with masking tape. A picture from my last concert with the lovely lady.


So I needed someone to fill the hole in my life. But... I wanted more.

Enter my 5 string baby, Molly.

She is a lovely lady, and we have been together for a while now. She takes a beating but she loves it!






She likes to show off too


I also have another lover... but we don't talk about her on this board...

Not the best quality in the world, but:




Me playing a custom shop Warwick made for Markus Grosskopf (bassist of helloween)




Just realized that the angle makes me look a lot shorter than I already am

LOVE it.

I mean it sounds great sure... but it's the range it has, that impresses me the most. The volume knob is great, but the tone knob like, ACTUALLY affects the tone a lot.

I know, crazy, right? But i've had basses where the tone knob is basically there for cosmetics and is always open, or else it's unusably muddy... but this one is great. With it rolled back i get a really good 'P bass with flats' thump, and with it open it gets an almost jazz-bass growly zing to it, but all the while having it's own slant on things.

It's one of those awesome setups where i can really leave my amp flat, and tweak things on the bass. It also lends itself well to being sensitive to where/how you play with a pick/fingers.

<3 it so much!!

When tomorrow and today collide
The moon is at its highest
And the twilight seems fitting
For in these moments
The light at the end of the world
Shines like a thousand suns....

When we play at that particular pub we usually do split sets with a DJ, it goes down really awesome for both of us. That was one of the best shows of my life.
Covers gigs can be awesome too!

Hell yeah!

I love playing with my one DJ/electronic friend. He's kiiind of a savant with electronic (he's a high-functioning autistic) has the keyboard/kaospad/tables/other-things-that-i-can't-comprehend/things-he's-created set up. I hook up my ginormous pedalboard and play along, making ambient sounds or a really visceral bassline.

Some of the more fun stuff we've done is the closest i've played to doing live dubstep. He did some of his electronic voodoo and was able to control the modulation and wave patterns of my bass with a Wii remote he re-wired... effectively applying that dubstep dirty wobble sound to my bass playing.

Haha, people almost boo-boo'd themselved when i stomped that octave-down pedal


I can't hate on covers gigs either... my girlfriend sings in a Led Zepelin cover/tribute band

Even more action shots from me. I'm loving this onslaught of gigs. The next three weeks have even more too.

These are from the Yardbird Jazz club in Birmingham, great venue, and even better audience response!


Pink bass distracts from the wonky tie and baggy shirt.

And to finish it off, sexy pose.

^ I have been known to frequent the Yardbird,as its a whole 5 mins from my work...do let me know when u guys are gigging there again,or anywhere in brum
