    Cool looking bass but I find the chinese markings tacky and would sand them off. The knobs on the volume and tone pots look as if somebody ripped them from a seventies Hi-Fi stereo amplifier so those will be substituded for Black chrome dome knobs and I'd replace that J pickup with a soapbar and then we can talk busyness.

    Naah, the "basses" of wish bass don't have back routs and look way worse than this. :spit:

    Hah! As if that would stop me! Don't you know? I'm the Wishbass Kid?:p:D
    Wait a minute... Where the third word?
     
  11. hmm.... after much staring and consideration, I think I like it! at first glance i thought it was hideous, but it's actually pretty cool. Could anyone help me out with a translation of those characters?

    I ran across this thing a few days ago on my rounds-I think it looks decent, but the Kanji either needs to be inlayed or not there at all- painting it on or whatever with a sharpie just looks cheezy.

    That's not as bad as the other wishes, brad.

    Unfortunately Wishnevsky's track-record/design flaws might hinder anyone taking his designs/basses/what-not seriously. \

    I agree. I think he's making some progress.
