Here's a cool one that even JT doesn't have:
Looks likt that would be EXTREMELY hard to play!! Hate the way the necks are set-up!!
(steve martin voice): "wut the hail is that thang?"
Oh, I know wut that is....
what the hail is that?!!!
I just checked out the Pagelli webpage. That bass (for lack of a better word) was a design by an Italian bass player who had his design turned down by many builders. I say Kudos to Pagelli for giving the man what he wanted.
Also, I remember this bass made quite a stir at the latest NAMM show:
And, I have to respect anyone who is goofy enough to have this on their site:
Due to lack of hope of success
at the time, we put the accompanying
sketches back in the drawer.
Today we can say with confidence,
that those instruments would have
had very little chance with the public..."
They are also responsible for this:
I guess it gets points for originality. And, from a simple building standpoint, I bet that thing was a pain in the butt to sand and buff with all of those crazy swoops...
Have to say I like this one MUCH more!!
there's a reason for that.
AAA! My eyes - they're burning!
I kinda like it. I would change a few things, but I think the design is very interesting and might be functional...
Now, where did I hide those pills...
uhhhh.... those are interesting...
i dont like the way half of the 4 string is fretless... but the shape is alright, except for teh sloped 4 string...
the fretless one is alright, and the red one is too.... vibrant... but cool design.
theres my 2 cents! enjoy, and prithee!
* runs away screaming like a teenager girl *
argh ! it's the demon-spawn !
but ehm.. isn't it missing something ?
pickups, knobs, etc for example ?
perhaps they are on the backside?
I actually like it--it's a little too postmodern, but I can tell that it was designed for functionality.
Most doublenecks have a problem in that the most comfortable wrist angle varies depending upon the height the neck is from the floor. This looks like a very elegant solution to that.
Having the controls located somewhere other than on the face of the instrument is also a bold, innovative step. Presumably, there are magnetic pickups routed into the back side of the body as well.
is the big neck a four string next to a five string, on the same neck? Kinda like a Warr/Stick?
It does look kinda like that, doesn't it? And the little neck is a five, not a four. Tight spacing on that one - yeck.
if you look at the 9-string section.. the upper 4 strings have a seperate bridge with wider spacing..
cheap solution.. looks crappy...
that might be because they wanted to seperate the bass and guitar function of the instrument. however, i agree. the thing does look crappy.
kudos for trying, though.
I played the Gold Pagelli fretless at the Jan namm show,and I must say it was one of the most beautiful feeling,and sounding basses I have ever played.it sounded like a 150 year old Acoustic with a touch of modernism fflowing thru it,the growl and sustain left all who played it ar heard it speachless,and in awe.
Its probably operated by telepathy.
