    Oh god...

    Does it have a trussrod?

  3. Thats way to "refined" to be a Wish.
  4. It sure is ugly enough to be a Wish, though..
  5. I'm speechless.:eek:

    thats a crazy bass,

    i dont think anyone needs more that 5 strings.
  7. Why not? :meh:
  8. Don't start this again...I'm beggin' you!

    The closeup of the bridge and "C" holes was all I needed to confirm the seller's claim of it being a Wishbass. The lack of symmetry and precision is readily apparent in that shot most of all.

    It is however, one of the better necks I've seen out of him.

    When I started here, I didn't believe anything over 7-string existed, let alone understand the NEED for that many strings.

    Well, lo and behold, i'm looking into ordering an 8-string.

    Rebar Trussrods!
    holy eff that would be hillarious... :D
  15. I could go on and on, but I bet those 'C' holes were only because he mis-guessed the dimensions and couldn't do F holes properly.

    Where's the handle!!!?!??!
  16. Well now, that has to be one of the weirdest things that i've ever seen...:eyebrow:

    That just leaves me speechless to be perfectly honest! That's just craziness! That just solidifies why i am never going to get a wishbass.. :ninja:
  17. The bridge is creeping into one of the holes. I can just see it punching through the edge of that hole under the string tension someday.

    Why are there people who continue to argue that Wish isn't a lousy luthier? His basses would get him fired if he worked for anyone but himself, some of them are actually dangerous to the player and not a one of them is built with any kind of precision. I could do better with a hacksaw, a dremel tool and a ruler and I've never made anything more complex than a pointed stick out of wood.

    Pardon the rant, but I can't respect someone who can't be bothered to use a ruler and a pencil to figure out things like string spacing and pickup placement. There's no excuse for shoddy work like that.
