Do you dig Buckeye basses?
Here is a great looking Buckeye Fbass!
I dig . . . I dig very much.
It really depends. Fodera has some killer stuff. My favorite buckeye bass was my old Garrison. That F bass above is pretty cool too.
I really do dig them alot. I'm wondering what they would look like without the gloss coat...you know, with a more natural finish? I haven't seen one yet, though I'm sure they're out there.
I love the look of Buckeye Basses. I like the look of tons of other wood combos too, but there is something nice about a Buckeye Bass, just something very exotic.
I could care less, either way. I've seen some I like, but most I don't. Tonally, Buckeye is useless.
Which is why you don't see bodies made out of it.
I love buckeye, especially the foderas
I love it-it's my favorite top wood.
My Elrick has a natural finish on buckeye-look in this thread if you'd like to see pics of it.
This is my favorite http://sadowsky.com/stock/view/feat_4136.html
That thing is absolutely killing me. So...beautiful....
So yeah, I'm down with with the Buckeye.
Nice! You know, it's not that I don't like the look of the gloss...I just really like the look and feel of a nice, clean cut of wood.
Very Nice, i really like how the green in the top goes with the maple fingerboard.
i like 98% of the buckeyes ive seen , so yes.
also i agree with the less gloss comment .
that fodera is beautiful , notice how it isnt glossy ?
you know....i cant really dig it....maybe its the fact that i think that simplicity can be more beautiful than this complicated piece of work (art speaking) and when i see buckeye burl....or any sort of burl....its too much to look at...its got this weird tye died effect and i just cant dig it...i dunno...maybe im crazy
That looks so wrong... the über-traditional-J-bass shape and Fender-style headstock with a top like on Foderas...
That is a nice piece of buckeye, but some can be overdone. And I'm not really liking the greenish tint of some, that vivid orange-ish like on the Sad is much more pleasant, IMO. Though it looks like it's really-really thin. Fot that much they could at least put a nicefull-size top on it
Can't stand the look, personally, but that's just me. I can see why many would dig the look. I just tend toward a more "traditional" look.
In my mind, there are few basses more beautiful than an old Fender Jazz sunburst. Again, that's just me.
It is really thin. That's the way I prefer buckeye so it does not interfere with the tona of the instrument. Buckeye burl has the tonal properties of cork!
I've played basses with thick buckeye tops that are tonally lacking. I want to think it is the buckeye damping the tonewood, but I'll leave the physics to someone who actually has a clue!
Another reason I don't want a buckeye-bass
