  4. ROFLMAO, I was thinking that too:p
     
  5. Is that really a Wish? There's nothing on the headstock or anything. I think it's downright ugly.
     
  6. What the "Insert child's fist in moth and have him say truck here" ?

    lol.......

    What's intonation?

    Also, what's an "upper register?"

    And what the bloody hell is aesthetics?

    Except it seems mirrored (isn't the treble side saddle normally higher than the bass side)?
     
  14. Yup, and it seems a bit too angled...

    Dur! I knew it was a lefty, I don't know why I thought that it looked right.

    Another practical detail is the upside-down jack, will look cool with a cable plugged in... :rolleyes: :)
     
  17. Other "interesting" features: Angled nut (!?!?), upside-down J-style pickup in oversized cavity, and trademark Wishnevsky uneven string spacing.
     
  18. Looks very odd. Ever see a toilet seat bass? Funny as all h*ll. Anyway, I heard through other bassists that the Wish basses have horrible tone. Anyone know about that?

  19. You mean the Music Man Bongo? :D

    I've heard from some respected TBers that they sound pretty good. There's a sound clip somewehere on the "Let's buy a Wish" thread, but I haven't heard it yet.
