    Mmmmmmmm. Poorly planned, constructed and finished.

    I'm gonna start making basses out of basement junk and sell them on ebay too.
     
  6. Make one out of a small car for the bassist on the go!
     
  7. I would simply disconnect the back curved "body anti-resonance plate" or whatever he wants to dub that, and use it like an Electric Upright. If you look past the really stupid part of that bass, you start to see a potentially good "core"....

    Who knows? If I can get it for 50 bucks, I will.

    At the risk of bringing back an old trend, I think we can call the concept of this bass...

    I like playing with EQ settings....just a volume knob would frustrate me intensely.

    It's gotta be an EUB because there's no way you could play that as a Bass guitar. I'd say that it wasn't a bad one except for that strange wing thing coming off the back and shielding the sides.

    I don't know weather to attempt to play music with it, shovel snow with it or go sledding with it.

    Either we are all right about that bass, or Wish is a genius and we'll all eventually buy one. I think it's safe to say that we're all right on the money with that. I do like the idea that he used old piano wood. It's been given time to continue to harden. What do I know, it's 2AM. Blah, blah, blah, yadda, yadda, yadda

    I'm going to bed.

    There is a strap nut on it, so I guess you wear it.

    I don't know what I find more disgusting, the fact that the bass was described as "a Steinberger you can hold on to" or the the fact that Wish has 100% positive feedback. It takes a lot of "personal work" for me to step back and realize that there is a market for this, and that market is bieng satisfied. My "wish" is that nobody is getting injured(physically or mentally) trying to play these poorly concieved pieces of crap.

    I'd pay $10 for it, Maybe $20, but not much more, It's nice firewood, but not that nice.
