    dude... its got a wooden pickguard with a see through body? that would kill.
     
  4. Little steep in the $$$ dept. 22 minutes left; doesn't look like anybody's tripping over themselves to buy it...

    ...neat looking bass, but not 7K worth of neat...
     
  5. I've got a feeling that bass will remain in the seller's inventory just like the OVER PRICED Rickenbackers & Gibsons he had posted several time before. :rollno:

    WHEN WILL THEY LEARN?!???
     
  7. NEVER!! They're waiting for that big old fish to come up for air and get a nice sharp hook stuck in its mouth. I'd really be surprised if it sold for that amount.

    This seller has thier wadders on and speculating to high heaven!

    Not wood, it's that fake glue-on stuff they used on 1970s countertops, furniture and stereos. I think they call it formica.

    Yup Formica.
     
  10. Yup, nothing says circa Brady Bunch, like good old formica.

    One has to wander what the tone of glass would sound like...
     
  12. It's plastic (plexiglass). Or Lucite. Not glass.
     
  13. Having owned an original fretted version, I wouldn't pay more than $700 for it. They sound OK, they aren't TOO heavy, the neck has an ODD feel to it and the wooden bridge is hokey. Other than that, they are at best..........OK :cool:
     
  14. it is a piece of crap bass my friend has one and it is just a knock around piece
     
  15. Given the density of glass, at traditional body thickness, I'd guess it would be pretty darn heavy.

    If you're willing to pay $7000 for that, I'd be willing to sell you my Alembic Dragonwing Custom for a mere $20,000. :)
     
  17. Not really, there's a lot of meat milled out of the cavity. I would guess 11lbs max. Plexi isn't THAT heavy. It just does NOTHING for the sound, IMHO.

    an authentic dan armstrong? I have a feeling he would think differently. There are a lot of knock-offs.

    plexi's density should do a lot for sustain.... like the granite guitar that leo fender experimented with.
     
  20. It's not the sort of Bass you buy for a player - you buy it to look cool 'n' "rootsy" in your next video shoot...
