    Wow. A CT!

    CT's are cool!

    Looks like I really contributed a lot to this thread!
  3. what i dont get is why people put their basses on grass, dirt, rocks, etc., or lean them up against abrasive walls like brick to photograph them. Aren't these prime conditions to damage the bass? anyways, it's pretty...pretty grassy

    Dont you find it funny there isnt a single serial number or a shot of the front of the headstock.
  10. The serial can be seen on the back of the headstock (reads 53003)

    ***?! $5100 for that? nice looking but what on earth?
    whats it made of?.. solid gold with mother of pearl inlays and a titanium truss rod?

    Same for me. I'd never spend 5 grands for a CT.
    There are so many excellent basses at much more reasonable prices...

    Not very pretty. And I wouldn't say that's a good price for this particular CT.

    Because they think they make nice backdrops. Take into consideration what you don't see in the pics, like anything that keeps the instrument from actually touching the hard surfaces. Grass rarely causes damage IME.

    Basically if you're careful there's very little risk.
