Sure, it's a lot of money but I bet you never bump into someone who has the same bass.
Honestly, I'm sure I'm in the minority here. But I've long thought that the painted fretboard being more mainstream is long overdue.
That's the coolest thing I've seen so far today.
But before I paid that price, I'd take my white Hofner Icon violin bass and have my luthier refinish the fretboard. I'd have the same aesthetic for a lot less. And mine would not be nearly as collectable.
That's not painted. That fingerboard is a synthetic called "Necuron", which is Hofners' version of ebonol. They make a few very interesting "Green" eco-friendly basses. Two or three guys on my Hofner page have them and love them. ;-)
Reverend is doing the same thing with Blackwood Tek. Mine looks like rosewood...guy at the store who sold it to me swore it was rosewood...but I've seen other BT fretboards that look like ebony.
I'd like the WHOLE BASS done in that! (doesnt have to be a hollowbody...)
I'd prefer a Club bass version.
Someone should pay me $5K just to take it in my hands.
I hate the shape of those objects.
