    The bass version of the Yamaha SGV800. Im not to sure weather i like it or not. The fact that it has no (or a very little) horn gives it a weird look. Im sure it sounds good just like most other Yamaha's.

  5. For some reason those basses look SUPER comfortable! They just look like they would hang real nice. Kinda an upsidedown Rick, of sorts...

    I love these basses! The dark blue one is bootfull!
     
  7. That thing is beautiful. The headstock I could do without but the body is crazy. It looks really comfortable. It looks like it would put you in a good mood when you pick it up. Make you come up with some funky grooves.

    With no upper horn those suckers must neck dive like a motherf**ker!!!!
     
  9. In some slightly bizarre way, I find it compelling--especially in seafoam green. I'd take one...

    I played one a while back. They're pretty cool - no neck dive, and they have better definition than most Yamaha basses I've played.

    I've played a couple...they play like Ibanez SRs. Not a bad little bass, just a missplaced warrior samurai is all...

    I think they are super cool!

    Too bad Ive never ahd the chance to play one.

    It got the same reverse offset body thing that I love.

    Check out my bass design to see what I mean.
