    That's... something. I was scrolled down and I said "it's not THAT bad!" until I hit the bottom of it... Ah well, I'm sure SOMEONE will pay for it.

    And I LIKE B.C. Rich's!

    Well, I guess this bass answers the age old question of: What would a bass look like if it were modeled after a Stienberger, and BC Rich, and a Rickenbacker.

    This could be the ultimate bizzare stage bass: paint it beige, and airbursh on goosebumps and wing/leg detail. Chicken Bass!

    It would be almost as strange as the dog guitar I saw about twenty years ago - the body was the dog, and the neck was shoved up...
     
  8. The only reason I would buy that is to resale it.:rolleyes:

    On the bright side...

    - it's not a Wishnevsky

    - it's nowhere near pointy enough to be used
      by any self-respecting metalhead...

  11. haven't you heard ?

    pointy is passe.. rounded basses are the new trend..
     
  12. At the risk of upsetting some TBers, I find Carl Thompson basses pretty ugly, and some of the European manufacturers are just plain weird!

    LMFAO! :D
     

  15. The Dead Undead Metal Bangers concert was cancelled last night due to equipment related injuries. The bass player while getting on stage tripped over the drummer who had stopped to tie his shoe, thus impaling himself in his brand new Porcupine Special, Wishnefsky. The drummer was also lacerated in the fall as well as two roadies who made the mistake of trying to get near the bass to help the Bass player. Emergency personnel wearing protective gear managed to remove a large portion of the Bass from the injured musician and transport him to the hospital. A HASMAT team, at an undisclosed location, disposed of the Bass.


    The drummer has still not tied his shoe.
    :D
     

  16. yet another good reason to get a rounded bass
