    Yah I would totally play that every show. It's kind of like breaking out the space bass for our last song every time

    I think it looks cool except for the headstock.

    I actually like the headstock. Kind of a classier (not much) version of some BC RICH guitars.

    My god. Why did I think of BC Rich. Then I just had to go to their site and find a picture of this by mistake... EEEEEKKKKK

    I dunno. Looks like someone started with a Carl Thompson but then cranked up the "suck" knob. :meh:

    No, I think I'll pass on that one... And it has nothing to do with the fact that it only has four strings...

    I saw a pic of that thing last week, caught in the net of a Japanese trawler.

    Aesthetically speaking, I generally like round curves, which this bass has. I dislike pointy angles, which this bass also has.

    I definitely dislike round curves juxtaposed with pointy angles, as I've only very recently discoverd thanks to this appropriately monikered "K OS" bass.

    Reminds me of this Bob Frenz bass:

    I LOVE the fretboard on this one. I was thinking about having him build a custom for me a while back (he live less than an hour from me), but I just could not ever get ahold of him. Left several messages too. Oh well.

    Are you kidding? The bassline to "Kiss" is dope! Just ask Jazzbo.

    Actually Prince is a fine bass player.
