    Sorry, dude - I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder, because I'm not seeing it...

    I instantly came to the opposite conclusion: worst ever. Just saying, if you think it's beautiful then good for you.

    Fender got it right the first time with the headstock. Everything else looks like it wishes it had a Fender headstock.

    Not digging the golden mirror pickguard. I like the painted headstock though.

    Headstock seems okay, but the guard shape seems a little off around the controls, not sure if it's because it is a little off or if it's just the material. It's not a bad looking bass, but I've seen better. Same bass with a white pickguard might looks better, or regular silver mirror Phil Lynott style.

    not the best but I do like it
     
  10. Same here... I'd imagine that'd get pretty dirty looking after a few shows.
     
  11. meh...not feeling it...needs a maple board with black block inlays and some black binding!

    Good bass for Pittsburgh Steelers fans, but I've seen better.

    Or just pearl blocks instead of dots like almost every other p bass/ p bass copy.

    I thought the same thing exactly.

    I suppose there's builders out there that seek to improve on the Fenders..... And the G & L's, and Sadowsky's, and Laklands.

    These may be the best looking ever! At least to me.

    Nah, I don't think so. It's just that with the title saying "Best Looking P-Bass I've Ever Seen", I think most people were expecting something other than a Black/rosewood P. It's nice enough, for sure; but best ever? That's a pretty tall order...

    ....and it needs to be a Fender

    but, I don't disagree that the black body and gold PG isn't cool. Haven't ever seen that combo before

    When you say something is the best you've encountered, be prepared for people to disagree or offer their own judgement.
     
  19. That's the thing. The title says "Best Looking P-Bass I've Ever Seen". It's a subjective title showcasing the OP's personal taste. He's not saying it's the best ever, or that it's the best YOU have ever seen...it's the one that appeals most TO HIM.
