  4. I like it,

    The tip of the headstock looks like its been bitten off, but it has a cool vintage vibe going for it.


    How's it sound/feel?

    I think most of the Italia's are pretty cool-looking...

    Prince just called.

    He wants his bass back.:D
     
  7. Yank the pickguard and put a non-stupid input jack on there and we'll talk. :)
     
  8. No one has brought up the most bizarre thing about this bass--the pickups! It's a fuzzy picture, but those would appear to be a lipstick vertically aligned for EACH string.
    Madness.
    Would anyone care to explain how this sounds?

    Yeeucch - I hated every one of those - somebody has got together all the styles in basses/guitars I really detest!!

    I ought to be a consultant for them - if I hate it, then they should add it to their range! ;)


    (Same to me as vintage US cars!!)

  17. well since no one here seems to have heard what they sound like... I have, and they have a very warm tone. Yes those are 4 lipstick pickups. I would guess that they would act like a humbucker. I didn't get any hiss or feedback from the pickups.
    I felt that the instrument was well balanced. Very light. The neck is just a bit wider than a jazz, but barely noticeable. It was quite comfortable to play.

    *the headstock is NOT notched off like the pic.


    The picture doesn't do it any justice!!!!!
     
  18. If they made a plainer version of it - without all the pearloid and glitter - I'd probably want one.
