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.

Uhhh... Driftwood Wishbass... Seriously

    Wishbasses are what they are...

    I have a modded Stude & there's alot I like about it (but it needs some more work)

    That one kinda creeps me out...

    so, is that 10 or 11 pounds then?

    I've never played a wishbass, but for any amount in the hundreds of dollars I expect a somewhat respectable pickup route and a truss rod. Aren't those two things like slab-guitar 101?

    That bass reminds me of what a wise man once told me, which was:

    "Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should."

    I love my Wishbass to death, despite the extra work that thing desperately needed, but this... this is just.... no.

    One wonders why a Fodera is more money.

    My three-year-old made something that looked pretty much identical to that today. He left it in the potty.

    Well, it has the novelty of never having been done before...

    I'm a fan of W's work, own several and all are playable with no other modifications.

    If I bring a Wishbass and any other bass costing thousands and thousands more, guess which one people want to ask questions about?

    Who has the Wishnevsky video of him jamming with his buddies outside handy?

    One of the funniest things I have ever seen.

    Was that price for how much he pays you to take it off his hands?
    My motto is to own no bass that first needs an exorcism.
