    Can't tell from those pics, but thinking not so much.
     
  2. Like it. I'm not sure whether or not I like the connecting upper horn yet, but overall the bass looks clean and cool.

    I like it. That camphor burl is pretty sweet. :)

    I love it, the horn connected to the neck looks awesome.

    I don't hate it... but I both dislike the connetting upper horn and the finish...

    The top looks like leopard print. I'm not sure whether that's a good or bad thing, though. And I like the separate flip-up battery compartment for the preamp. I think all active basses, especially expensive ones, should have an easy access battery compartment like that, so one doesn't have to waste time unscrewing the cavity and needlessly poking around in there just to change a battery.

    I think it looks FANTASTIC!!!! Love the pup covers and the top, and I've always had a soft spot for connecting the upper horn back to the neck!! (which is only overhshadowed by connecting it to the headstock.)

    If the upper horn were not attached to the neck I would love everything about it.

    I think the Kahuna is doing a great job for you.

    I think Grandon makes really cool basses - I dig the general shape on this one, but I'm not too sure about the connecting horn bit.

    Looks great to me-slithery and smooth.

    I don't really like it, mainly because of the finish and upper horn.

    Grandon, no offense if you read this...

    I think the bass is beautiful sans the attached horn, and also I feel the bass clef inlay is cheesy. We know it's a bass ;)

    I think it's an awesome looking bass and I love the connecting upper horn, very cool!
