Not really related to bass... but damned if it isn't great.


Steve with Dean Girls



Ah… Dean Girl booty



Warwick

Steve plays a Warwick Dark Lord. Tuned F#BEA




Tomorrow I'll upload up some ESPs, Ibanez, Bee, Nordstrand instruments, and Nordstrand pickup equipped instruments (LeCompte & Valenti are noteworthy in that group, as well as the Nordstrand Nordy line).

Enjoy!


Edit: I just uploaded a Bee bass pic for James Hart, who owns this mighty Bee Worker Bee 7... what a bass... what a lucky guy!

haha

Awesome pics of the Ernie Ball MMs. Real nice Rics, too. I've played one once, and I've been hooked since.

Got any Dean pics other than chicks?

*shudders* I never thought I'd want to see a Dean bass more than the chicks. Excuse me, I need a stiff drink.

Interesting.. all very nice basses, man, especially the Ric's. Mmmm. and that Ray? Oh yes..

what was the highlight for you then? other than the ladies of course.

and why do those basses look so big on you? are you quite small?

Those aren't half some sexy basses.

Loving the Rickenbackers.

The power to feel with others give.

The Rick in the natural maple finish is beautiful. There is one in a local store that I play on, but I still don't have enough money for it.

I think I speak for everyone when I say how much I appreciate you posting these pictures, Metal. Oh, and also that if you laid a hand on a new ATK before me, I'll #@%$ing kill you.

By the by, how'd you get into NAMM? I've always assumed you need to be in the industry to get in. (Maybe you are, I don't know lol)

The ones I could play were very nice. I couldn't, however, plug them in. Sorry.

I have other Dean pics, but only guitars. It's in the GG&A forum. I didn't really see any basses there, actually... but I didn't spend much time at Dean.

Quote by Charlatan_001
The Warwick Dark Lord is like... Meshuggah's bass of choice.

What's the scale on it?


35" I believe. The Low F# moved around quite a bit, as you can tell in the pic. I didn't plug that in, but unplugged it was a nice Warwick... as far as I remember not insanely heavy, but you could still feel it, and the neck was pretty good (fitting for a bass so low, at least).

Quote by smb
There'd better be some ATKs coming...nice pics there!


Sorry, no ATK pics. I was rushed away by my group before I got to take ATK pics.

The highlights for me were probably the Valenti with Nordstrand pickups I played, the 7 String Bee Bass owned by James Hart, the MM SR5 20th, the Blue Dawn Sterling (I like Sterlings SO much), and the Haken Audio Continuum Fingerboard I played, which was amazing (Dream Theater fans will know what it is).

I'm 5'7", but most of the pics were taken relatively close up, and strapless (having to support it up or sit with it doesn't add size).

I'm afraid I did. The 300 unplugged as well as the 700 unplugged. The blue quilt finish on the 700 is quite nice, and they are certainly nice slappers.


And we bribed a security guard.

Seriously. How did you get in!? Because I want to know how too.


The sterling and the warwick look asome.


I'd also like to know how the Dean girls played.

They're both white Nordstrands... oopps! The one on the left is Adrian's.

I couldn't play any Nordstrands OR Nordys, sadly, but I did play a bass with Nordstrand pickups. There's always next year, when I'll send my guitardist off to do something while I play some nice basses.

Wow, a white F-series *drools uncontrolably*. I have the black cherry but that white is pretty as are the valenti's and nordstrand. The wood on the Nordstrand is amazing. What I wouldn't give to be you.
