    That is one ugly bass guitar. Looks uncomfortable to play also. I'd rather just drink the beer.

    My guess is they eventually get $350 for it.
     
  4. Looks lieka POS to me.

    Would have been cool to have a sort of P-bass body shape, and then paint the body as if it was a bottle of bud.. :)


    :rolleyes:
     
  5. Hmm... at least the luthier didn't have to do too much job..."Oh, where did I put that surplus piece of wood again...? ah, there it is! I thought I had a Fender neck here somewhere...."
    I can't believe someone is actually willing to pay 3000 bucks for that piece of wood with a huge "Bud" sticker on top while you can get a decent and versatile bass on the same price. Shame on those weak commercial crap -buying poor souls...

    That actually beats out those toilet seat basses. That's the stupidest bass I've ever seen.
     
  7. No! The 'seats kick! I REALLY want one...

    Just to try it, of course. What I'm going to sue it for though, WELL. :D


    :eek: :cool:

    The toilet seat bass would look better the the bud bass for sure, but wouldn't they sound kind of crappy?

    It appears, though, that no one has bid on the three grand opening price...a small victory for taste and common sense?:D

    If anyone bids wants to bid on it, they should get in touch with me first. I'll make them _brand new_ one for only $5000, hardly more than the Buy It Now price.

    Alcoholic maintenance products. Duuh yes, I need a 40 ct. bottle of these, but I don't have a drinking problem . . . :rolleyes: I am so proud of my addiction that I'll purchase a $4500 bass to advertise it . . .
     
  13. I think his ad should read, "Use Buy It Now and I'll throw in a free keg"

    hahaha... haha... uhhhh

    BIN price is $3500? What an idiot. Doesn't he know that he should lower the price if nobody wants it?

    That's an awful lot of money for a bass that's only good for hanging in a bar/rathskeller.

    Maybe Beverly Bakes made it, (his wife).

    The bridge masking much of the "B" in "Bud" shows how much thought went into this sorryass thing.

    How long before Mimi puts that one in the Amusing Basses thread?
     
  19. AHHHHAHHAHHAHAHHA!! toilet seat bass....sounding crappy!!! ohhhh!! hahahhhaa!!

    i think i'm the only one who caught that!

    ok..i'm ok now...ahem..

    and yes, that has got to be the most rediculous thing i have ever seen. you think they could have centered the "BUD" better? sheesh...my 5 year old could make a better looking bass than that...ok...probably not.
