    why no headstock pic? Looks effing killer tho!
     
  2. i like it, not the spalted top though...i'm not a fan of the spalt tops.

    the bass itself looks awesome though!

  3. I love the spalt! I think the neck is a Warmoth (Jazz neck with black blocks) and so the headstock is likely empty. I don't know if the construction is good but I'd assume it's pretty good if it's selling for that price. Of course, I dunno if anyone would buy it at that price considering it's a Warmoth.
     
  4. Looks like that seller is from BunnyBass. I recognize that photography style. Also, a search of bunnybass and shishido turns up some links such as ... er ... well, the Cat Haiku page:

    That is a really nice case, its pretty pimp, but kinda reminds me of the inside of a coffin, COOL!
     
  10. Supa-Dupa kick a$$ bass!!! But I'm allergic to cats. $1800+, however, is a bit much.

    FYI, the body is one of ours, but not the neck. Neck's probably allparts. Ken Warmoth (the big guy here) did the binding on that body personally by hand.
     
  14. The seller is John shishido of bunnybass!
    Think you can go easily with it, you won't have problems with this guy...

    I heard a lot of good things from them!
