    Oh yeah Baby! Pure F***in' Evil B****es!

    I've got the tremolo locked from going up so the Detuner works without causing tuning issues.

    The EMG Pickups have improved preamps with Alnico Magnets and the EMG 3 band EQ has sweepable mids so yeah, tone for days and days!!!

    I designed the neck plate and did the carbon fiber myself!

    Oh and it's got the extra long Kahler Whammy Bar and Schaller Strap Locks too.

    It's a Devil that sounds like Heaven!


    (Sorry, I know could posted this in a one of the of the other whammy/explorer threads but this bass is just too cool, not to have it's own!)

    Agreed! Great job on that neck plate. It is the PERFECT "final touch"!

    Sweet bass. Love the carbon fiber look. I am guessing you play in a blues band?

    First of all, I'm a sucker for a red and black bass.

    Secondly, add 100 eighties-metal points for the body shape.

    Thirdly, add 1000 points for having a whammy bar. I've always wanted a whammy bar. :bassist:

    ROTFL!!! :D

    I`m guessing with the pickups/electronics in that destroyer, he could do just about anything sonically. Visually it may not fit well….

    Always wanted a destroyer. Now I know what color I want, lol.
