    Looks like a design student and his portfolio. His other designs are decidedly non-FBass-like.

    I don't know what to say. Without being able to read any of the text it is hard to say what is going on. It is obviously a copy as far as body and neck go, though it says that it is a 34" (864 mm) scale. I suppose it's possible that Fernandes has permission.

    From poking about on the site, it appears to be a guitar building/engineering school that teaches people how to make instruments that look like other instruments.

    They don't appear to be in production or being sold.

    It does look pretty homemade and low rent.

    When Queensryche's "Queen of the Reich" first came out, someone took it upon himself to translate the lyrics into Japanese. The translation back to English was most hysterical!

    The headstock looks a little bit...strange.
  8. I don't see anything wrong with that. Everybody copies fender, why not copy something else?

    I felt that way, until I found some Warwick copies. Childish, I know.
  10. I tried to do that but it didn't work. Got a website that does Japanese/English translations?

    Fender copies can look good. Sadowsky, Valenti, all good

    But the Dean Sledgehammer? I know I wouldn't mind taking a sledgehammer to one, to say the least...

    They look so foul! :crying:

    And now I see this?

  13. Total thumb rip off there.

    The wood even looks the same as the BO thumb, is it Ovangkol?
  14. looks more like the dolphin
  15. The Ric nockoff on his site dosnt look like a regular 32" scale. I don't know why, it just looks bigger than that. I wouldn't mind a 34" or a 35" Ric, because I dig their look and their sound, but for me its like playing a guitar. I hate the color of it too, but o well.
  16. rics arent 32" scales
