    Thanks for the decals Delta.
    Chrome is a little hard to photograph from a distance.

    Your bass is badass. What kind is it?

    Reminds me of Les Claypool's $15,000.00 Carl Thompson Scroll Bass.
    Would KILL for that thing

    Do you think there will be a problem with the labels rubbing off while you play??

    It's a 2001 Ibanez Ergodyne EDA900 JBF model bass.
    The only original inlay is on the 12th fret so there was nothing else to cover up.
    Not sure if they still make them.
    Reprolabels Chrome Faction Symbols.
    Special request from Delta, I don't think they are for sale on the website.
    The decals are the perfect size and location that the strings should never come in contact with them.
    So rubbing off should not be an issue.

    What about sweat and oil from playing? And when you clean the neck? I'm sure you could put something over them to protect them though.

    I think you'll be surprised how quickly they'll rub off. We used to paint the necks of fretted instruments with note letters back in school and the paint would wear off inside of a year. You may not touch it all the time, but you will touch it.

    There are places that can take any sticker, label, or other flat object and embed it under a small piece of acrylic for a tiny bit of cash, and then you'd have a permanentnly marked instrument. Or, if you consider yourself handy with a dremmel/router, test it out on some scrap wood and see what you can do.

    It's a great concept, but stickers on fretboard wood just doesn't work for an instrument that gets played and cleaned regularly.

    Woah, it sure is amazing how many bass players there are on here!

    Anyone can play guitar, but it takes a real musician to play bass!:rock

    I play both, actually. And the drums. But drumming's just for when you feel like beating the crap out of something and not getting tossed in jail for it.

    I play all three! So nah nah!

    And I disagree, drums are vastly complex and require the utmost control and precision. I would say that drums are most likely the most difficult to play.

    But I'm no expert, I've only been playing for like 20 years...

    Actually, I'd agree with you in some ways. My comment was more along the lines of how *I* treat the drums. I also play violin, viola, cello, upright bass, piano, harmonica, saxaphone. . . so it's nice to have one instrument I play where I don't really care much beyond "rhythm? Check."
