    I actually like it.
     
  3. Agreed...it's very inspiring also! Nice grain, etc. If the shipping wouldn't be horrible, I'd really really be considering it. Almost fits what I believe in / want in bass...perfectly.

    dyyyaaaammmmmnnnnnnn.

    I really like that bass. I'd love to buy that sucker. It fits my notion of a bass pretty well. If only that pup were a bit closer to the neck, and I had the money.

    The seller is cool to be up-front about the obvious and not so obvious faults.

    They all seem to be cosmetic.......plus, how big was the beaver who ate off the ends of the horns?!?!

    If it sounded great and the seller would agree to a decent approval period, the cosmetics could be overlooked. The electronics look very good on paper.

    I'm just afraid it might sound like an all-mahogany bass - too dark for my taste, (think "Gibson Les Paul"). That maple veneer is awfully thin. But with that Moses neck - ya never know.

    It will be interesting to see what the top bid is.

    seems like this guy is completely honest.. and I imagine that bass would be pretty decent to have.. i like it.. except for the horns.. they just don't look right to me..

    I'd like it if not for the shape of the headstock. Guess I'll go with the Fender-style when I get my Moses neck.

    My hanewinckel consist of a 2-peice mahogany body and it has bartolinis. It is acutally one of the brighter basses i've played,-- but it does have a wenge fingerboard.
     
  10. I like it I think it is pretty sweet for a custom. I f I had the money I would get it.:rolleyes:

    I saw it. it had a "buy it now" at $565. I almost went for it but I'm concerned about the shipping charges from Hawaii.

    This, however, was the deal of the day. I'm sharing it with you guys because I don't wanna feel mad all by myself.:mad: :p

    Man! Someone got a sweet deal on that one! If I were to spec out a Carvin 5, that's almost exactly what I would want. Might go for transparent green instead of crimson, but for that price I wouldn't be picky! That guy lost at least $500 on that sale.
