You be the judge
Have to admit, Steve's basses are beginning to look better..
that one does look a tad better than what i have seen before, but i still can't get myself over that headstock...never have...
That thing is still a Joke. It has that whole ghetto homemade look to it. It doesnt even look like he tryed to make the headstock look nice.
I'm concerned about the bridge, it doesn't look like their are any ferrules for the strings.
Aside from that, it's probably the most conventional Wishbass I've ever seen.
Hmm, a "fretled" bass?
I wouldn't trust those frets' positions.
But after 400 bass you would think he could get it right?
+1. Especially with the bridge on that. Intonation's probably garbage.
Let's not ignore the "zero fret".. that's right folks- you have to fret it to play what a normal bass does on open strings! Those frets scare me more than anything I've ever seen on a wish bass. I'll definately pass on salvaged wishbass.
OMFG, I hope you're wrong! When looking at the picture, though, it seems like you're right! The strings look like they don't even touch the zero fret! :scowl:
Whoever bought this bass better put something in the headstock, or else he'll have squirrels living in there in no time!
slowly improving, but still sloppy.
The zero fret doesn't mean you can't play open. That would be insane. It's gotta be touching the strings. Which should make for a very good action in the low registers.
It would be kinda funny to have, just so my hopefully-soon-to-arrive Fodera could have a little sibling
I think that looks kick ass. Give Wish a break, they are dirt cheap!
There is nothing wrong with using a zero fret. Mike Tobias, Ned Steinberger and Christoph Leduc have used them on everything they build.
I think what they're saying is that it looks pretty ineffectual on this bass because the strings aren't even touching it.
