    I dig Tune basses. I feel that they might be the most over looked brand in bass history ( well, right behind Status.) Any Tune fans in the house?

    I have played a TUNE ZI2 5 string (i think it is anyway!!)
    for the last 8 years!!!
    bought it second hand...
    great looking/sounding bass...
    but...VERY VERY heavy!!

    There has been a thread about a very nice custom Tune lately... It had pearl inlays in the body, it was a real eye candy and it looked cool, too, even though i dont normally like purple... That wasw about the first Tune i saw... dont remember the thread title, though, maybe a search would help...
     
  8. All I've played we're very nice although that was the 80's I think they were called Bass Maniac

    Awesome basses...
    played a borrowed one for awhile, until my friend took it back, it's his main bass now.

    here's one i'm looking at buying currently.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I have a 4-string fretted Maniac with EMG pickups and active pre. It is a slap MONSTER!!

    I had a fretless version, but I traded it for this one. Though the Maniac was the low-end of the Tune totem pole, they were still well made basses.
