Lookin For A "signature" Mark On My Bass


Recommended Posts

hey hey hey everyone. i have a surf green mark hoppus signature bass. as you probably know, its made by fender and shaped like a j bass. i was wondering if you guys had any ideas on a "signature mark" that i could put on it. you know some famous musicians have stuff like something in duct tape or some sticker or words on their bass. i was thinking of mike dirnt has some duct tape on his. mark hoppus has that blink sticker. i think its the taking back sunday guitarist, machinero is his last name i believe, has what looks like some mailbox letters that say scout or something behind the bridge (its an sg, lots of room behind the bridge). well i wanna get a signature thing to put on my bass. like something that sets my bass apart from the other mark hoppus basses out there. i wanna put the mark/sticker/watever in the big open space between the bridge and the pickups, but right above the middle of the two. i know this is a really stupid post, but i am insanely bored right now. id appreciate any help. thanks.

i do realize this is a pretty stupid post. please dont yell at me for crapping up the forum.

Erm... to be a signature, it kinda has to be your own idea, doesn't it?

For a simple mod, magic marker doodles can do wonders.

For something more complicated, a cool paintjob or even body shape mods can add that "original" look.

Perhaps routing for another pickup to vary the tonal options could act as a signature look and vastly expanded tone from the P-bass pickup it already has.

This is simple...got a saw? good.

Now, close your eyes and cut off the lower horn (not the one with the strap button, duh). I'll let you decide how much to cut off.

That'll show the world you're a bad boy.

Now, if you want to be really badass, you shove something into the exposed wood. No, no, not that, save that for the ladies.

I got it...get hold of a metal statue of liberty, cut her off from the pedestal and jam her in up to her neck.

When you get famous and they bring out your signature guitar, make sure you give me a cut, all right?

:D

idch: lmao. do you know how many bass companies have contacted me know because of your idea? haha jk. that was a very original idea.

But see that guitar in my avatar? I took a telecaster and chopped it up. Uh huh uh huh.

Okay, it was a tele copy...I'm practicing for doing this to a real Fender MIA...I'm getting ready to chop up a Squier Strat...

sorry, the thing hadn't been polished in ages when I took that pic, so it looks horrid, but, it's pretty cool... being a lefty I was drawn to it because after i flipped the strings and nut and rearranged the bridge, I didn't feel like I was losing a cutaway in the process.

but back on topic, did you think about making a stencil and using a can of Krylon? that may be cool...
