    I was poking around in my local boutique bass shop and noticed this. It apparently belongs to Eric Wilson, has anyone ever seen anything like this before? It has six switches, two for each pick up, giving you full control over what coils in what pick ups are on...:eek:

    Neither could I, but he supposedly came down here to do some sorta clinic and left it there to be sold on consignment...

    Stanley Clarke was endorsing these for a while, and IIRC they were crazy expensive. Like, five figures expensive.

    Are you kidding me? With THAT bridge?
    That'd be the first mod, getting rid of that monstrosity!
  7. Perhaps it's less decorative, more functional. Probably a counterweight to prevent neck dive.
    And yes, it is dopey...irrespective of the brand name having "Lion" (in German) in it...yes, it's in context...yes, it's dopey looking.

    The lion's head is the coolest thing about it!

    Cool looking bass. Not my thing and not Eric's either since he's selling it. Cool though

    Baird6869 RIP Gord Downey. A True Canadian Icon.

    Outside of his MusicMan basses, he did play some weird basses over the years.

    The Loewenhurtz bass is butt ugly IMO regardless of who owned it.

    Seriously thinking about adding lion's heads to all my basses now, though. Hope they don't weigh much.
  13. Hi.

    Plastic shell ones are as light as a feather ;).

    +1 It wouldn't be for me. But it is unusual, I'll give it that.

    I hear Löwenherz are actually 'rethinking' the lions head at the bridge end.
