    I guess the novelty wore off pretty quick in such prestigious venues......

    Ummm... no. If that were an icecream flavor, it would be Oogalicious. Just ugly.

    well, you have to admit, it REALLY matches the aesthetic of his band.
    I guess he just wants to get that bass some attention, cuz he sure isn't going to SELL it at that price!

    This would explain his bass philosophy.

    Cary Moore-Played lead guitar for rolling thunder and then switched to bass & vocals for pouring rain which was a bit of a turnaround but at the time there were no bass players around & heaps of guitarists,I also had a go at lead vocals for an Iron Maiden tribute band called ACES HIGH back in mid 90s which was a strech vocaly but it's in the past now.Lucky enough to run a home recording studio,love 50 htz bass,love NISSAN SKYLINES especially GTRs,cool bands for me are ACDC of course,Iron Maiden,Offspring,Chemical Brothers,Fur Patrol,Betchadupa.

    There is some truth to that... most of the time I'm using the E and A strings, as are most bassists. He's correct when it comes to notes, however, I'd still rather have my 5 string. After all, when the occasional high note is needed, I don't want to be on the 24th fret.

    Except "Reserve Not Met" at that price.
    "Buy It Now" is only $12,000!

    And don't forget the $200 shipping & "handling".:rolleyes:

    And is it just me or does the guy playing the bass look like he'd be caught saying "Mmmmmhmmmm I reckon to kill you with this lawnmower blade Doyle Mmmmmmhmmmmm."
     
  9. :rolleyes: Jerk. The bass is cool, though. I almost like it.

    I am suddenly thinking that a Wishnevsky doesn't look that bad after all!

    You got to give props to the luthier, the bass looks almost identical to the one in the picture. Although it looks like the one in the picture has four tuners. It must be rough being a luthier when someone comes in with a ugly design and a fistful of money.

    $12K isn't too much to pay considering it's Klingon.

    That made me laugh.

    I read the name of his band as Pour In Grain... not Pouring Rain. Maybe it really is Pour In Grain. If the bass were jett black and he said nikki sixx played it once or something than he would be on to something. But if you are going to have a bass custom made for you... why rosewood?
     
  19. It might suffice as an elephant ear cleaner.
    The word "Wishnevski" (copy?) comes into my mind
    :D :D :D
