There's gotta be an easier/cheaper way to get a Musicmaster Bass.

It’s a Peavey - the headstocks can be spotted from miles away. I think they called it the Razor? Weirdo for sure

I’m intrigued by the third one. The birds are flying inverted. Maybe it was played lefty. Maybe it’s from an upside down universe.

I would rock it.

Not vintage, but utterly butchered Jag-stang.

Even leaving aside the... let's say "questionable" aesthetic choices, even ignoring the fact that the coloured in headstock was so half-arsed that they've missed a bit by the string tree:

What the hell happens to that nut? About 20% of it is missing. But undeterred, they've still strung it up with the low E dangling off the side of the neck. I suppose you can at least admire their optimism.

ok. so this reminds me of a band a girl i dated in high school was obsessed with. i think they were called something like atreyu. but she was always saying to me that they were good musicians because they played flashy looking guitars and she showed me one that had like fake blood splatter on it or something. kinda reminds me of that.

p.s. keep in mind at the time, this was my main bass. and even i thought it was garish

That's definitely Atreyu lol. Dan Jacobs had a blood splattered Explorer copy with ESP for a while.

You might want to sit down for this one, folks.

The bottom half of this is a 62 Strat (62 serial, 63 neck stamp).

Top half was added in the 70s, fwiw...

And while I'm here, I've been saving this one up for a special occasion. This seems as good as any:

I found this on the Facebook marketplace by putting Paris as my location. No word of a lie, this cheesy strat was made by someone French. You couldn't make it up!
