    So really, why are Ernie Ball basses so god awful ugly. I am referring to the most famous model that has an egg shaped pickguard and a banana shaped control plate.

    Now, I realize personal taste reigns over all, plus I myself really do appreciate radical or different designs.

    Ernie Ball Music Man Stingrays literally appear as if the designers thought it would be funny or camp to design a mess.

    I guess my main point or gripe is that I don't care it looks unique, but it appears to me they just blatantly threw the parts together without designing or making an attempt at an aesthetically pleasing product.

    PS I really respect it as a hypthetical studio bass, but c'mon!

    We do not allow "ugly bass" threads here. If you don't own it, don't call it ugly.
