    The two guitarists in my band have some pretty nice and what you'd call odd shaped (especially to what a guitar is SUPPOST to look like) guitars, and i was wondering that i could maybe join them?

    So my question is:
    Are there any really nice, sharp looking style basses other that all B.C Riches and the Warwick Buzzard at a reasonably high quailty and at nice prices? (The B.C Rich Beast really look appealing to me, but was curious what else is on the market)

    Thanks,

    The low-end BC Riches just aren't worth it, they're built for looks alone. The high end BCR's (custom shop, etc) though are quite nice. I owned an '82 Rich bass for over 10 years as my sole bass.

    what's your actual price range?
    I'm sure TBers can recommend some stuff for you. :D

    If you like this one and you're handy, pm me your address and I'll send you a copy of the template so you can make your own body. It's my own design, so you won;t be ripping anyone off, well, except me :D

    When I was making it, I thought it was looking too B.C. Rich-ish, but I still like it.

    It looks kind of Flintstones-ish to me.

    Weren't the Flinstones guitars made of dinosaur bones?
     
  7. how about a jackson kelly?
     
  8. steinberger?
     
  9. Doesn't Warmoth make all the BC Rich body styles too? They would be much MUCH higher quality than real BC Rich.

    I really like the looks of these, although I can't comment on quality or price.

    that burns bass looked like a bison, i think it's called...warmoth makes a couple of the bc rich shapes like the warlock, eagle and mockingbird, but not all of them...the ibanez eda basses are sort of weird shaped and have piezo pickups in addition to the magnetic one - there happens to be an ibanez AFR on ebay right now for peanuts (these are the original rolf spuler designed wooden basses that the eda's were knockoffs of)...i would probably go with a warmoth warlock with your own wood configuration
