    I really dig it! It's got the Longhorn vibe, funky, futuristic almost, and looks killer. I'd own it.

    Space Bass!

    I dig it for it's originality. I mean, how many basses are there that have old school lipstick pickups, and SIMS LEDS?

    Is that a finish of navigational charts, or is that some actual wood grain? I can't tell on this 17" monitor...

    I probably wouldn't buy one new, but if I saw a good deal on a used one, who knows?

    Jason, it's some sort of map (something to be said for NOT having vision correction!). It's still cool though. I'd love to play one.

    i like a lot the way it looks, modern and classic at the same time!

    good work!

    Yeah, well, something to be said about being more than a decade younger than me, too, there, sport. ;)

    I thought it was a map (and, on my 19" LCD screen I can see it just fine :p), but I couldn't confirm at work.

    Now that I look at the bass, again, it kinda reminds me of a spaceship from the new Star Wars flicks...okay, so I'm a geek with bad eyes--leave me alone....
