    Ladies and gentlemen, I give you (drum roll) ... The amazing "JOE" bass :eek: ....



    According to the ebay listing (link), this guy can build you a custom guitar or bass, which spells out your name using these hand carved, ash blocks. Great gimmick, eh :)?

    I quite fancy one that simply says, "FUNK", or maybe "MoFo" :D. What do you think?
  2. What if you have a really, really long name? :p

    I imagine even getting "Chris" would be tricky!

    :meh: I dunno. "C" would be a good shaped letter for the bottom curve of the body and the top half of the "S" would make the perfect "upper horn". Only problem I can see would be access to the upper frets - the bottom half of the "S" curves the wrong way.

    Nope, there's nothing else for it mate, you'll have to change your name to "CHRISSIE" :D.

    Anyway, you wouldn't be seen dead playing this would you (not enough graphite for you ;)). You might like this one though, Chris (link).

    Well, I've sold the Stealth bass...this is my bass now!

  9. You get a really long scale. It might look better if they used some realy nice woods and not that metalic paint :eyebrow:

    ...this is what happens when non-creative people, try to be creative.

    That thing looks like a turkey trying to mate with a pig over a giant fried egg.

    I think it looks like it'll turn white if you leave it outdoors over a few weeks...
  17. I want one that says 'Bad Ass Mother****er'.
