Perhaps. Though, and this is just personal opinion, I don't think this is as gimmicky as say the mothman or as gene Simmons axe bass. I don't see it being much different from a custom bass with some strange body shape but some of those look so good they aren't considered gimmicky. I could be wrong and end up hating it later on but for now I have a few months to decide on if I still want it or not.
So thanks for your concern. I will keep that in mind when making my final decision because I do need to look at all sides when spending this kind of money.
