"Elites 30, 50, 70, 90"

By Mrsbass
Good evening all,

I'm thinking about a weekend of music as we are off to the Nantwich Jazz/Blues Festival over Easter. So tonight I thought I would share with you a photograph of (one of) Mr B's tools of the trade.

This is by far my favourite bass that he owns, it is a gorgeous '86 4003 Rickenbacker Jetglo. It has real retro look to it and a beautiful chrome bridge and accessories. Age has turned all the white binding and scratch plate to a very mellow ivory colour.

The title refers to the extra light guage strings that he uses to give it a really low action (answers on a postcard)!!!!

Thanks as ever for your comments and votes on my previous uploads - they are very much apprecaited.

Best Wishes - Heather

Great image Heather - but you lost me after your first sentence!! Tongue you know that the word 'karaoke' is Japanese for tone deaf!! That is as far as my knowledge on this subject goes!! Tongue

Seriously, well done Heather - you really have a great eye for getting the extra-ordinary out of the ordinary!! Smile

New tactics , do like this shot Heather dof and lighting are really good ,like the reflections of the the chrome on the black gloss . Do love close up macro work but sometimes because of then detail involved some Pre shot preperation is needed , in this shot i think maybe a bit of cleaning of the chrome running through the centre of the image ( under the strings ) would have enhanced the shot , revolutions start at the beginning , well done Heather , speak soon Kel
