    WOW! I dig the 21-fret neck. But the rest is a little on the "fringe"

    "WARNING: The "handle" on the top back is not a HANDLE. It is a hand rest. DO NOT TRY TO PICK IT UP WITH THIS HANDLE THAT IS NOT A HANDLE."

    I think we just found the best bass for metal.

    I swear, my front door mat is the exact same carpet used as the covering for this bass, give or take a tassel or two and it didn't cost any where near $2,499.

    I'm glad for the buyer that it is a "one of a kind!' That way they will have the only one!

    Shame the guy has an Ebay store filled with nice, or at least interesting, guitars that he ruins then charges WAY too much for.

    Even this bass looks cool. A through-neck P bass? Sure I'm interested until he wrecks it with that daft tassles.

    Here is another one from a few years back that the ebay ad said that " it brings a unique ric tone to the guitar from the electromagnetic waves being influenced by the metal"...oh ya :rollno:!!

    I was kinda expecting something relic'd that someone decided to call fringed instead.

    $2,500????
    That's hilarious.

    "Alas, but it does not reflect as do many of my creations. This is more of a "Peaceful Easy Feeling" guitar that works best when it is playing the songs of the "new west" circa 1967-68. No hassle out it. Just swaying with the music."

    So....I guess I could use that for the one 1967-68 "new west" song I might do in any show.

    Or, not.
