  1. Has anybody tried one of these? I'm intrigued, and feel strangely drawn to them... Am I dangerous? :help:

    That's a killer bass. I remember seeing a thread about it before... Who made it for you? I like very much. :D
  8. mmm.... :cool:
    Just out of interest (I couldn't possibly afford one) how much did it cost you? Great colour too.

    Aren't 4-string T-birds pretty muddy-sounding? Making a low B work would probably require at least very different-sounding electronics meaning you won't get the classic T-bird tone. And I hope they did something to reduce the classic T-bird neck dive!
