    I mean the dude in the Kustom Ad in BP magazing.

    What a 'freaky' bass.
    Anyone know who made it?
    It looks like it has some hieroglyphic owl on the headstock.
  2. That's his "123-UP" bass. He had an article a few issues ago in bass player mag which gave the manufacturer.

    I forget, but I'm sure someone has the issue.

    Thanks guys.
    You saved me some searching and quelled my curiosity.
  4. I bought this guys last album and was not impressed, very average!
    Anyone else got it, what do you think?

    I know this should be in recordings but looked like a thread worthy of highjacking!

    I agree, it sounds very average...seems like he has a lot of Claypool influence to.

    My band and I opened up for FreakBass when he was known as Freebass a couple years ago in Dayton, Ohio. I was very impressed with his live show and bought a disc from him, which was pretty disapointing. The drums were programmed. But he's a nice guy and a good bassist. He was taught by Bootsy and lives, or lived now, in Cincinatti.
