    The guy obviously doesn't know rosewoods from rosebuds but that seems to be a quite righteous bass.

    The body is too slim for my taste but I saw/heard someone playing one on SNL once and it sounded great.

    I think $2250 is too optimistic for such an unpopular body style on a used bass, though. Including the "Alembic" reference doesn't help his credibility any.

    It's not as bad as the one a few weeks ago where someone bolted the bass and guitar necks and bridges to an acoustic guitar, and connected all 3 necks with a bar of some sort! I wonder if that one ever sold!?

    What about putting it through an amp?

    Can't think of much else to do with something like that.

    Other than, say, putting it through the shredder, right?

    :rolleyes: It's not that bad.

    It isn't worth >$2k, but I wouldn't mind having one. It looks pretty cool to me.

    What's with the body anyways? You could say that's a neck-thru body with bolt-on neck.. ;)

    I thought that kind of structure was pretty pathetic on a $300 80's Korean POS, but on a $2000 bass.. :rolleyes:
