    This is the best looking one I've seen so far. I wonder if he got that p/g idea from Vinne.
     
  2. It's definitely the most unique R I've seen.

    I like it!

    I like the extended B and the rest of the bass looks great too.

    WORST R bass I've ever seen. Just looks like a Jazz bass got fat, drunk, and lazy and developed a skin rash. I'm not too crazy about the headstock, either.

    Well it is kinda funky looking. I can see why some would like it and others want to puke...ahem.

    Anyway, what is that thing at the top of the headstock? I've never seen one of those before.

    The headstock reminds me of Carl Thompson, with that plate on there.

    But, with the matching pickguard, it kinda works.

    I dunno...not my bag, but I'm sure someone out there will find their prayers anwsered in that bass.

    I'm sure it plays, and sounds great, so aesthetics are completely personal.
     
  11. I like both of those! The first one is a tad different, but still pretty cool, and the second one is just awesome. Maybe I should sign up for some new credit cards and go shopping!
