    Okay I love offbeat guitars and basses and I really dig what Rondo and Eatwood are doing. Now a brand I don't really know much about is Dillion although I read good things about them.

    So I went to their site and saw that they have a Rickenbacker inspired bass, not a straight copy but the influence is obvious enough.

    DRKB%20004%20BLK.
    DRKB004%20BG.
    DRKB%20HEAD%203.
    DRKB%20HEAD%20BACK3.

    Might be strange but it also reminds me of the old Electra Outlaw basses.

    I like the headstock on that Ric copy.

    I dunno man, you probably wouldn't be able to fit another tuner on there. :p

    I just gotta say that this is one awsome bass. picked one up about 3 weeks ago and decieded that it had to come home with me. Ended up trading a Schecter Diamond Jazz bass for this one, bought a set of chromes, took them home and fell in love, great neck and a suprising amount of tonal flexability. I seriously have a hard time believeing how good the quality of Dillion guitars and basses are. I also have 2 Dillion guitars, all are keepers.
     
  5. wow, a few replies without a single person calling you a terrible person for buying/considering buying a Ric copy? it's a miracle.
    they look very cool though. wouldn't mind having one or two for myself.

    Why is there a missing peice on the A string tuner? You can see the back of neck thru it unlike with the other 3 tuners/ Other then that, looks like could be nice rickish looking bass. I see it even has push/pull knobs for coil tapping.
