  1. You guys see anything disturbing about this latest Wish nightmare?

    Got to love the dual "truss rod" action! :p

    I'd hit it. Its not as spacey as his other designs. The body actually reminds me of a Ritter Jupiter.

  4. ..doesn't this belong in the 'Best bass to whack someone in the head' thread?

    Is that the "standard option" trussrod?

    I meant in shape, numb nuts.
  8. you know, Wishbass wouldn't be that horrible (as far as looks go) if it weren't for that hideous headstock that he insists putting on his basses...the bodies aren't bad, but the headstock... :eek:

    Not that I like the looks of it either, but I understand it. Wish claims in that recent interview that that headstock is very efficient to make, and cuts significant hours and dollars from the build.
  11. I want that, seriously.

    i think he can count my vote for the best innovative truss rod lol

  13. the pickups config is confusing- 3 P p/ups slanted and covering 7 strings.

    I doubt that the string response would be very even.
    it would be a lot simpler to put in some cheap soapbar p/ups - eg. Kent Armstrong.

    My sarcasm was aimed at Wish not you :p I was agreeing with you in a sense.

    Ugh...all I hvae to say is...ugly headstock.
  17. Did anyone else notice the 4" action.

    Must make a great cheese slicer.

    He spends all that time with the body and does nothing with the headstock to compliment it. It's like building a kick ass pro touring '69 Camaro and using 14" steel rims with ugly hubcaps. Cheap and efficient, but does nothing for the overall picture. :eyebrow:

    Okay, maybe he doesn't spent THAT much time on the bodies. :D

    I acrtually like the shape!!!!And it actually looks pretty well (ish/er) constructed.. dare i say solid?

    As for the action, this is like his first time using truss rods he probably doesn't know how to adjust them yet :p

    EDIT: The birdge is corain plastic and somehwat movable... and the holes for the string-thru don't look very even... :crying:
