  2. That's disgusting. I'm tempted to buy it just to give it a proper burial.

    Wow, I've seen modern boutique instruments with pretty much that exact shape...
  6. I just bid 20 bucks on it. The artwork alone is worth that. :hyper:

    Looks like it's been wearing a waist cincher.

    Humm, well if one likes the body shape and wood used, and doesnt mind that neck dive will probably be quite a lot due to very lightweight body. Then might be worth buying for a few bucks.

  12. I doubt it would burn very good - unless it was chopped into fine splinters

    I have said it before, but if the hippies had spent more time bathing and killing lice, and less time defiling musical instruments, there would be a whole lot more nice old Fenders around :)
  15. There are enough normal precision bass bodies to go around. I think the work was well done, and with the right neck, bridge, and tuner setup, it could be a killer player's bass. Heck, you might even try and make a headless bass outta it.
  16. It has it's charms, but it won't cure your mid-life crisis if that's what you are looking for.

    I think it's repulsive! There are enough "normal" looking people around too, so why not hack an ear off just to look different!
  18. Touche. And for the record, I do like the traditional P bass shape. I just think that someone trying their hand at reshaping a pbass body isn't a crime, given that there are so very many pbass bodies out there. Although the "normal" looking people argument is probably a big reason why people get things like tattoos, piercings, etc. Maybe not to everyone's taste, but still a legit form of expression, like this pbass body mod.
