    Did he have a series of sneezing fits during the design-drawing stage?

    I especially like the bit where he says "can be played with a bow, though I never tried."

    All this is based on the scientific evidence that it is "very rounded"

    The precision boggles the mind.
  8. Wish basses look positively boutique next to these beauties :D

    Thanks for the heads up.

    He live less than an hour from me and has 0 transactions on eBay. I'm heading over there now... no one will miss him.

    First he'll make crappy basses, then he'll evolve to making videos showing him and his buddies playing music that sounds like cows farting and cats being strangled.

    No Canadian Wishbass wannabees on my watch, TB brothers and sisters!

    That's some amazing tone and technique, there. I've always gravitated toward the drunken bullfrog bass tone, but somehow, on my gear, it has eluded me. :crying:

    ...that can't quite keep from laughing out loud while singing goofy Irish ballads. That tone sucks...
