    I like the knot-hole. There are just not enough basses with a see-through option. Hey, doesn't this kind of belong in the "Best Bass to Whack Someone in the Head With" thread? I think we have a winner!

    That's the new Flea strapless bass. Sock not included.

    Best quote ever.
  6. In Cuba a lot of the young salsa guys play home made EUBs that are made from a 2x6 and look really crude but some of them sound and play really fine.

    Well, I suppose if you're board with traditional basses *drumroll*

    Aha. We now know where Joe Satriani gets his ideas.

    I was once at Lane Poor's studio and he really did have a 2x4 with a tuner on one end, a nail on the other and a string between the two. He had a humbucker under the string wired directly to a 1/4" jack...............It sounded unbelievable! No joke. I wouldn't have believed it unless I had seen it first hand.
