    This is quite a bizarre headstock IMO....but then again, it's not that ugly!!

    I'll let you guess who built it.

    "Gross" is the word I'd use. And it looks like the flaw on what is probably an otherwise very lovely Ken Bebensee guitar. :)

    It was not built - the Anti-Christ spawned it.

    Gross, but strangely compelling.

    I think I'd have to go with the gross but strangely compelling... I kind of get a different vibe every time I see it. But I definitelly wouldn't put in the extra money on this Bebensee.

    Anyways, if you guys want to post any more oddities in the headstock realm or just weird basses, I'd like to see. I don't know if that thread's been done.

    Granted, you need to be one of the mutants from Total Recall. Or, a pineapple.

  11. I happened to visit Kene Bebenese's website the other day. That's where I first saw that headstock, and I'm not going to tell you what I thought...
    The bodies look good, though.
     
  12. I did ? :rolleyes:

  15. It looks like a really bad hair piece. Why they put it on a bass is beyond me.

    Hmmm, now I'd like to see what's on the face side of the head(stock)... :)
