    Somewhat amusing, but very interesting and cheesy. Would any of you actually want to paly this thing? I'd rather not advertise for Budweiser personally...BUD BASS!

    thats true, there hasn't been an update to the amusing bass for a while, and thats quite possibly the best part of the site...its a conspiracy i tell ya...

    oh, btw, theres no single person behind the site, check out the Who Are We section....

  5. If there is anything that you could to to a bass that is more tragic, it is to associate it with the carbonated goat urine known as American beer.

    Whoever gets that bass, call up the Bud corperation, and ask them for money, seeing as it's just a big honking advertisement. Ask for an endorsement:D;)

    I would not buy that ugly thing, especially at that price...

    ...and I would definitely not be seen endorsing Budweiser, I drink beer, not Bud. :)

    That's right, if you land an endorsement with company building poor basses, you can always have similar bass custom built and put the company decal on it, but I don't think you can custom order different beer in Bud bottle.. :meh:

    I'd rather have Michael Anthonys Jack Daniels Bass.
    I would rock out 10 times harder with that thing, I'd get those cables that they always used to fly around in their videos...someday....
    :bassist: :D
  13. Icky poo.
  14. If it was a bass that had the old Bud Man cartoon character on it, I might consider. Bud Man was an advertising slogan Budweiser used in the 70's, I think.
  15. Wait! wait wait wait!!


    That's how much THEY'RE paying ME to take it, right? Cuz I could sure use the cash.

    i wonder if the budweiser connection describes its tone too - thin and watery, with no body.

    I read all the posts before I went back to look at the picture. Wow, that's one of the worst looking basses I've ever seen.

    It couldn't be any more tacky.

    I pictured a Fender body with Budweiser for a body paint, but that was terrible.
