    What's funny is how they say that it's been "transformed by Jack the Tripper" like it's some work of art or he's some luthier god. Just some jackass with a saw and too much time on his hands.

    Oh and may I add that it's "a real ...emmmm ....unique bass....."?
  5. Yeah, I've seen this one before too.

    Now, let's say I was to be given this bass. What would I do with it? Taking into account that it's value is absolutely zero, and that it would be cool to have the original bass, I think I would figure out the means to slice the sides off of the body and remake the wings to be glued back on and restore it's original shape. Then, even if I couldn't match the wood, it would still be acceptable with a contrasting center section. After all, it's the neck, pups, and hardware that are the hardest to replace and since it's a set neck, you can't unbolt the neck for putting on another body. It could be a cool player after that.

    Right now it's a steaming pile...
