    a hoodad. its kinda like when youre in a car and you see someone you know and you dont know who they are but youre wantin to sound like you know what youre talkin about but you dont so you want your friend to think so, so he gets confused and just assumes that you know him then goes back to thinking you dont know him so then he doesnt care; and you simply say .... " hoodad? " :D :rolleyes:

    It's actually Hodad, not Hoodad.

    I believe that it is discontinued. They were blown out for $99 a few months back.

    a black dc when i saw him at least. I had to play one as a backup at my last show when i broke my low E string, don't ask me how i did that. They are actually cool little passive basses. Kinda awkward to sit down with. I dug the tone. I can see why fat mike likes them. Still, give me my stingray anyday.
