    I just went to the GC and found this bright red bass out front that was made by an Indonesian master luthier named Rogue. The bass has this beautiful metallic "buzz" tone, even when unplugged (!), and it has knobs could do this "scratch" effect when rotated that I knew would come in handy sometime. I also dig the avant-garde finish design with a few strategically placed chips to show the multiple layers of exotic wood in this bass. I can't imagine the effort it would've taken to get all those exotic wood chips together. It had a price tag that said $150, but I knew they goofed and meant $1500. I had to do the right thing and point it out to the salesman. He acknowledged the mistake and then added "But guess what... since you're such a good customer, I'll sell it to ya for $1000." Well, needless to say, I immediately bought it because I knew sooner or later he was going to back down on that insane deal.























    APRIL FOOLS :rolleyes:

  3. It's the "Multi-layers of exotic woods" that make this thing rule.

    IMO, it doesn't get much better than miss daisy rock's heart shaped design. it is the "house party" to ken smith's "house party 2."

    the super-tiny scale expedites the playing ten-fold, even though i only play roots (well, i can ALMOST do that). really helps for guys like me who have small hands, among other things.

    That's a load of crap. My Kay could wipe the floor with your Harmony. And if you think you're tough, I'll pull out the unholy trinity of my Lotus, my Silvertone, and my Samick.
