  1. Giving "hollow body" a new meaning?

    Click on MODELS -> BASS and click on the picture.

    It's not exactly my style, but I think it's pretty cool.

    Also check out their guitars, there's a 3D animated view of the "classic X-ray" model, and others.
     
  2. Yeah, looks cool, although I 'd never buy it. Interesting pickup configuration too

    The bass probably needs to be re-thought. With the upper horn only going to the 16th fret, combinned with what looks like 5" or so behind the bridge, it will neck dive.

    And I'm not buying that it sounds like a semi-hollow, especially as a bass.

    Well aren't there a few different basses whose strap horns don't go up that far?

    It does look intersting though. I just wonder how it sounds.
