with this beauty... italia modulo bass
anyone else played one of these?
I played on today here in Austin.
i may have to hock some gear to get it.
the body shape is a P Bass....
the glitterish is ugly...
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.
Yank the pickguard and put a non-stupid input jack on there and we'll talk.
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.
Would anyone care to explain how this sounds?
I think its ugly
What does the writing say just above the end of the neck?
"No Number 5 robots were harmed for the making of this bass"...
i love those koraen Eko inspired intruments!
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!!)
As an Italian,I feel offended by the fact they use that name on such ugly things
for those interested in the heritage of Eko that influenced italia:
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!!!!!
If they made a plainer version of it - without all the pearloid and glitter - I'd probably want one.
She's a wee bit sparkly for my tastes.
