1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

Anyone Tried One of These?

    Ummmmm. What?

    That might be the worst idea I've ever seen (no offense to anyone who has one).

    I feel like it's like putting a razor on the back of your toothbrush.

    Just buy a bass and a guitar.

    It has "endless sustain".




    I hadn't realized there was a market for this kind of contraption.

    That video is so GANGSTA!! I just have to buy this bass assuming I can dance like the guy in the vid.

    I would imagine the thing is a pain to play, so while I would love to try one, I wouldn't pay $350+ for the experience.

    Then you must not have imagined the cock rock antics that could be pulled with that sort of thing.

    Good god - my left thumb hurts just looking at that thing.

    There should be a disclaimer on that: "Extended playing (over 5 minutes) may result in excessive bleeding... and leave your shirt on."

    Another thought... if you make a truss rod adjustment on one side, aren't you screwing up the setup on the other side?!

    and why is that guy eating the guitar 8 seconds into the video?

    I thought it might be a good travel guitar. "Can't decide whether to bring a guitar or bass on your trip to the Bahamas? Now, thanks to the new Ronco Guitbass you don't have to?"

    I like how both sides of the neck are 24 fret. Especially on the bass side; about 6 of those frets cannot possibly be reached.

    If you're in a band with an attractive guitarist of the opposite sex, perhaps you may want to cut costs and share the instrument... just sayin.

    Years ago I saw a Japanese man on TV who had gotten a patent for "6 day underwear." It was tighty whities with 3 leg holes so you'd rotate them one leg each day, then invert inside out. This seems every bit as appealing.
