    Im sure its a fantastic bass but I jsut cant get into the Bee Bass body designs. They are just a little too "Wishbass"* for me. But what would I know, I want a Bongo despite its looks :D

    *this is not a comment on the playability or tone.

    Wait a second... WISHBASS --- BEE BASS ---- WISHBASS --- BEE BASS... I'm about to overload. Does... not... compute!!!
     
  13. well, I've never played a Wish, but I own a Bee and am awaiting a second one; Fred's work is top notch. his basses all sound and play wonderfully!

    every pic of that 5 looks better than the last I'd seen, HUB! congrats! I still think the 7 looks better, though...

    :p

    does anyone have sound clips of bees? I checked the clips out on your website hub, but I wasn't sure if they were done with your bee.

    "Bustin' Out!" and the melody and solo's on "Dust in the Wind" were both played on my Bee 7. I am hoping to get some 5-string clips up soon....
