    Looks cool! Not cheap though. The bridge looks interesting, wish there was a closeup. The dual cream reverse-P's flow nicely with the body shape.

    I'd rather get a Buzzard, that thing reminds me more of a BC Rich than Entwistle's axe.

    I think it is presumptuous of me to think that the fact that you dig that bass is the reason you strange.

    There could be a variety of reasons you are strange. :)

    you were strange _way_ before that bass came around.

    but no, that bass is very cool, so that doesn't compound your strange quotient. :D

    Yeah yeah....ok I'm strange anyway but I really dig dual reversed P pickup basses.

    This one reminds me of those Mourdian (sp?) CS basses that Chris Squire played for a while.

    I don't quite see the "Buzzard" connection to be honest with you. I dig Buzzards too but I've never seen one for $600 (more like $6,000).

    It's kinda weird. But if you dig that, it's cool. More importantly, I hope it plays well. :)

    Dude,
    I have one of these, it's a nice bass. I paid less than $500 Canadian for it about ten years ago, but the finish was not in as good condition as the one currnetly on ebay.
    Pros:
    Nice sweet singing sound in the upper registers.
    Dual P setup cuts through well, and records well. I always used both full on which gave a nice balance between the "scooped mid" and the "gronk" sound.
    Cons:
    The upper horn is kind of short, which puts the first few positions farther away than say, a Fender, but there is no neck dive.
    The pickups (looks like it has the same DiMarzios as mine did) are crap. I put EMG's in.

    That is one strange looking bass, but it is still cool.

    Odd. A BC Rich that doesn't make me BC Retch.

    I kinda dig it. Kinda.
     
  20. For the kind of style it's going for I kind of like it. It looks like a BC Rich but better, (IMO).
