    ***... that is horrible, looks like someone took a wish bass and took all of the things that made it on the edge of acceptable out.
     
  3. I think that is the worst looking bass I've seen on ebay. What a turd.

    well, then you must not see many basses on ebay. while no work of art, this isn't the worst I've ever seen (remember that machine gun bass that was on here a few weeks ago?)and as far looking like a toilet seat, i think it looks nothing like a bongo :D :bag: I KID! I KID!

    Kidding or not, you'll have everyone who feels it's their calling to protect Bongos yelling at you over the internet here in a second. It's quite sad really. :meh:

    Kind of like some Wish designs, I'm sure it seemed like a great idea at the time.

    it's from Ankh instruments and this one was for sale on bunny bass for a while.
    I wouldn't buy it but I think it looks cool

    It sure is ugly, but it does look like a solid and well constructed instrument.
     
  10. what are you talking about man? i'd buy this bass anyday over the wish - i think it looks kinda sexy - well compared to the wish. and ditto on the well crafted and constructed part. i think you might actually be able to play this bass. and also not fall into a spiral of self-loathing if you bought it - compared once again to the wish! :crying:

    I thought about this, but figured the joke wasn't worth the backlash. You got off easy so far...
     
  12. The dude wants 3 times more than what I paid for my wishbass...

    I'll stick with my wishie...
    Swim away, little fishie...

    But if the quality is 3 times better, it would be worth it don't you agree? Even though I get a sudden urge to use the restroom when I look at the bass, I think it looks pretty well constructed. Something I can't say about Wish.

    I actually prefer the looks of some wishes to this but I wouldn't buy either, as a playing experience I'm sure this would be far better than a wish for sure, note correctly installed electronics and a decent finish lol. I have to admit the wood is quite nice but the looks just make me feel ill.
     
  19. That guy is from a local forum here in Dallas. You should go check out some of his sound clips. He slaps on this thing and uses an Agent 00 Funk pedal. I've told him that his clips sound like butt and another guy equated them to sounding like a wet fart. You should check 'em out if you get a chance. The link is here.
