    2500 bucks for a 25lb piece of lucite? No thanks.

    1, 2 and 3 string basses have been around for ages though...

    all that, and you will have to keep around some extra nine volts because your electronics keep on running out of power due to the led lights soaking up all the juice. no thanks.
     
  7. With such a thin neck and a heavy glass(?) body, it's the perfect smashing bass!!!

    I seem to recall The Presidents of the United States of America used a 2 string bass.. not sure of the make though.
     
  9. Definitely a novelty item. $2,500?? Really??? Wow. You could get a REALLY nice Sadowsky for that price, with a whopping three more strings! :eek: :D

    "...features a transparent body with multiple green lights embedded within controlled by an simple on/off switch."

    That itself makes it worth $2500. That kind of intense wiring and basic use of refraction blows my mind.

  12. Why would anyone want to be more limited when playing bass?

    Thanks - I need to oil it up a bit - do some maintenance.

    It sounds really good though.

    Here's his website - http://www.krappyguitars.com/index.html - mine was something like $130. I can't remember exactly, but it was right around that range.

    :D

    Mark Sandman, the late bassist/singer for Morphine, used to play a 2 string bass.

    Why not? With the right shape the body might magnify what's behind...
