    It looks like a Wish ripoff to me. One of those cases where the ripoff is better than the origional.

    Compared to a Wish, this one looks like it was acutally made with tools rather than a rusty steak knife.

    The headstock looks like it's grown a tumor.

    Well...it is pretty damn ugly. However, I still think the Bongo wins the prize.

  15. It's not too bad. It's just "excessive." I'd play it... once or twice...

    No thank you. Not for me. But then again. At least it's not another Fender copy. We haven't seen enough of those. :rolleyes:

    I don't know if I should play music with it or slice cheese with the strings and cutting board appearance. You can poke an eye out if it's airborne.

    Why were the four tuners placed on the short side of the headstock and the three on the long side? I also like how the strings are so evenly spaced at the bridge. (more of this guy-> :rolleyes:
     
  20. I normally hate crazy concept design basses like wish basses and what not, but this one i actually kind of of like all around.
    Cheers,
