    Hmm, I'm not a marketer but something tells me that such a beautiful instrument could have the soundhole described more aptly than "bent carrot".
     
  4. Well, it DOES look kind of like a bent carrot!

    I love green basses,especially the deep color on this one. Nice detail in the checkerboard-binding headstock,too. Very tempting.

    I had a REAL 4005. Yes I was a total idiot and sold it. That bass does not do it justice, or come anywhere close (at least by looks).

    Jumbo,if you like it you better get this one,i don't believe they are planning (or allowed) to produce this model. I had a 4005 once,but traded it in for an 8 string V-C bass. That was long ago,when it was available for 1/10th the price they trade at now. This bass looks pretty cool,but i actually think i like the italia rimini a bit more.
