    Anyone seen one of these? Interesting.
    32" scale, Mahogany body, maple neck, vintage jumbo frets, swamp skunk FB, Graph Tech nut, Ultralite tuners, Hipshot bridge, and an "active upright bass PU" by EMG.

    Their website doesn't offer much info:
    www.blastcult.com
    Their FB page has some eye candy, including one with a Zebrawood body:

    Sent them an e-mail asking for info, although for that kind of coin ($2.5G) I'd probably get me a Bruce Johnson SSB:

    What do y'all think?

    Haven't had the pleasure of trying one yet, but I do play Blast Cult uprights and can tell you Jason Burns' craftsmanship and detail are among the very best out there...looking forward to hearing one, for sure :)

    That is a fine bass, just purdy. Is that a thunderbird style ridge along the length of the strings?

    I'm getting that all-too-familiar "gassy" feeling!
    Requested more pics.
     
  10. That's totally cool!

    The color option "Blood Burst" is cool also. What a name.

    Nice looking bass but no shielding or does that matter anymore with today's pickups? and is that battery just loose in there?

    I'd love to try one, one of these days...Jason Burns does the coolest builds and I love his sense of style, as a rule...very curious what those whacky pickups sound like :)

    I've been playing his uprights exclusively for probably 10 years now...I think I've had 5-6 of 'em...the latest Blast Cult uprights are the best thing he's done to date
