  1. This would be one right here. How would look walking in a church with this bass?

    LOL, no kidding! Besides, I'd be afraid to touch that thing in public... every time you step outside with it, every law enforcement agency and anti-terrorism unit in the state shows up gives you a beatdown. No thanks!

    Quite possibly the most awesome body shape and paintjob I have ever seen. So sexy. :bassist:

    OMG, that's sick... not to mention that its potentially not-safe-for-work viewing.

    Both seem a little odd looking to me.
    From what I've heard though they are supposed to be the best sounding bass you've ever heard.

    If anyone has one let us in on some details.

    There was a picture in an old Spalted maple thread of an amazing bass that had a yellow finish with red highlights over the spalt. It was crazy.

    I hate to be a prude, but that erection bass should be edited out. I would hate to be surfing Talkbass on downtime at work and the internet supervisors check in and see I was checking out an ejaculating phallus. :oops:

    It should probably be turned into a link so each user could click on it if they so desire. But, wouldn't you get in trouble anyway for surfing here during work hours even if you weren't checking out fuzzy basses with balls?

    Being in academia, I have more freedom to look for things than most people at work. Often things that seem irrelevant pertain to areas of research and study. That being said, the university does have a general "no porn" policy.
