    Egads. The pickup route is noticeably crooked, and not enough to be intentionally so . . . :rollno:

    One side came out so well...that hip cut is nice and the curve looks great...but then it all goes so awfully, terribly wrong.

    Oh, the humanity....

    This guy needs to get out of the instrument business. What a chotch.
  8. If we could get everyone to pitch in $1 a month we could double what he makes and pay him to stop. I'd pay $1 a month for that.

    That's a bit better, a bit boxy at the top and fryingpan on the bottom, but at least it doesn't look like a thalidomide bass.

    Hey, at least he's putting that god awfull beer can plate on the back of the instrument instead of the front,

    Baby Steps people...

    I think the secret to Wish is to direct his talents to where they will do the most good (or harm based on your opinion...)

    How much do you think it would cost us a month to get him to build guitars instead of basses?

    I will agree that he's making progress and his basses are getting better and better but I've also notices his prices are getting higher and higher. By the time he gets to real luthier quality he'll be charging just as much as or maybe only a little less than eveyone else.
