    Welcome to the forum bro! :) Good to have you here

    sadly, your photos are not showing up. Try using the website "postimage.org". That always seems to work to embed photos. Failing that, if they are under a certain size, you can directly upload them to your reply using the "upload a file" feature

    I've always liked the Schecter guitar models with bats as inlays and didn't know they made basses with them too.

    This was purchased from a touring musician, so it has a few covered up bruises and I'm not fond of the pickups, but it's awesome nonetheless.

    The first is a Spector Rex2000 4 string that I got back in 2002.

    The other is a Yamaha TRBX 5 string that I've had for probably 6 or 7 years now. I did have an RBX 4 string before this and absolutely loved the tone from it but had to sell it at the time, so when I the time came that I could afford a new bass, this one was a solid choice.

    I do also have a Squier Precision that I got at a pawn shop for $100 but it's hardly worth taking a picture of... lol..

    Here's a throwback to the first couple of 5 string basses I've ever owned: a Warwick Corvette and a Schecter Stiletto.

    I used them quite a bit in the writing process for some of the stuff I've released such as these, despite their absence in the clips at hand:

    After 18years of stright bass i kinda gave it up about 8-10 back to focus on guitar, but earlier this month when i was tinking of moving some gear on i decided to pull out and service my B-Quad 4....kinda got the hooks back in me now so much so that ive removd it from sale and have been spending some time refreashing my slap and tap tech's..this bass can go from a mouse to and elephant in zero seconds flat its F'in mental the amount of sounds you can get out of it.

    My favorite picture to date, I'm on the wait list to get this body redone for two small gripes but after that it will be literally perfect.

    This matte black bakelite guard is amazing and it plays like butter while sounding amazing. I'll have to come up with a name soon.

    Re-answering: To be honest, yes.

    This bass has some serious history to it! It's a 91 or 92 EXB. I bought it in very bad condition around 2001. Painted it metallic dark red. But never quite liked it...
    In the meantime, bridge changes and a reroute to fit the EMG MMTW pickup in the bridge position.

    In 2007 I resolved to strip it clear and bring it back to its white glory. By then I thought of painting the headstock white too. But going through the old Ibby catalogues, the original styling seemed perfect! And the black headstock matches the rosewood board.

    Only in 2020 did I get to paint it and reassemble everything. It plays amazing and sounds awsome too!

    It is so slick and easy to play.

    Here's a throwback to my old Stingray HH basses. The gloss black one is a neckthrough build.

    Both were great basses as I've liked the Stingrays for quite some time, though they were quite heavy.

    Thanks. I am fond of it. Through a B7K Ultra v2, it sounds glorious.
