Bassfish by Goldfish Guitars Club

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by TolerancEJ, Dec 25, 2010.

  1. With my recent acquisition of a Bassfish and a TB search, I saw no clubs. To rectify this oversight, I am beginning one now. I'd like to know if anyone else owns one (or if I'm the only person.)

    This is the thread where I was deciding which bass to get.

  2. What's the build quality like? How does it compare to a similarly priced bass like an SX?
  3. @cultrvultr - Build quality, I thought was a decent design. I was basically expecting a novelty bass but everything seems to be built correctly and sounds good unplugged and plugged into my amp. The only thing I want to do is set the action lower. It is possible as the bridge is fully adjustable. I haven't tried an SX so I'm unable to provide a comparison.

    @pica - Pretty much goes with anything. This might be the perfect bass to play John the Fisherman. Don't worry, I was expecting a bunch of food-related jokes anyway.

    Are you still playing the bass? What do you think of it after this time?

    That's a fat fish. :)
  7. If you gig with this bass you should throw Goldfish crackers out into the crowd!

    I have one - I think it's totally gig worthy.
  9. I am still playing this bass regularly. Basically, it is a nice travel sized jazz bass.

    It's been awhile since I played anywhere live, but this bass would definitely fit in the rotation of instruments. (I have sort of a thing for interesting/novelty-looking instruments.)

    @Red J - I love the MM Bongo. A Bongo HH 6 is currently #1 in my wishlist.

    @gjbassist +1 on the idea of tossing out Goldfish crackers to the crowd. (product sponsorship deal, maybe?)

    @SBassman - I'm not sure if you're into the TB Clubs thing, but I'd like to give you Bassfish member #2 if you'd like to accept.

    The question I have is... is it any good for metal?? I don't think this question is asked enuf! :D
  11. Certainly! You can play anything with it. People smile when they see it. I still like my Bassfish.

    My three year old's body is constructed of about 45% Goldfish. She would LOVE this bass. Hmmmmm......

  13. Their target demographic is children, but honestly, it's just a compact jazz bass. I'm gonna pick up an eye sticker to put on the body.

    Mine's "Cherry Burst" which I like to affectionately refer to as "Hellfire Flame" ;) :

    Mine plays great although I'd like to rewire the pickups in series. The neck is quite thick, I'd not think a child could play it?

    The Bongo is shaped more like what you would flush a goldfish down rather than an actual goldfish.
  18. #3 Roadkill - Wow! There are 3 of us?! I don't think the company had cherry burst when I was looking at them.
  19. Some people do not like it, but I love the Bongo! The MusicMan Bongo 6 is currently among the top 3 of my wishlist.
