truly very beautiful, if I had some thing like that I dont think I'd play it just have it on display...

so have you named it?

I was under the impression that people then to name their guitars am I wrong or have you just not bothered?

:lol: It's true that I'm almost scared to play it, but it would be a shame not to seeing as I've just spent a fair amount of money on it!

I haven't named it, I did name my previous two basses Wrathchild (Peavey Grind - now sold) and Painkiller (Tanglewood Rebel - now signed by the majority of the We Will Rock You London cast plus Brian May and Ben Elton) though.

Perhaps Hell Patrol or Sweeney (as in Todd) for the Fender?

That first image could have come from a stock image website, very nice :)

The Hdr is a little under exposed, i'd suggest increasing the Exposure in Photoshop by 1/1.5? might look a little better

:lol: you're not the first to say that, they were placed down and picked up very carefully, so no marks on either bass ;)
