Interesting (?) bass

  1. Saw some pics of this 5 string "horned God". I am curious if someone can guess who is building that bass :)

    Looks like, I'ma guess, a Minarik?

    I dig it a lot.
     
  7. nope ;)
     
  8. Well he used a proper router on the controls cavity instead of drilling a couple of holes next to each other with a doorknob saw, so it's definitely NOT a Wishbass :p

    No fair!!!!!


    If I had guessed (and it would have been a wild guess) I would have been right for some unknown reason. Something about the top wood just clicked in my head.

    Are you offering a "prize" for the winner?? The headstock looks quite familiar :rolleyes:

  15. Chris Benavente is building it; a customer designed it that way.

    WOW. Not a fan of the sharp horns but the craftsmanship is amazing! The inlay and the spiral thing are awsome! Did anyone else notice that the frets don't go all of the way out to the end of the fretboard? That looks great, such a great idea.

    It reminds me of Irwins...but in a good way.

    Is that back wood Ziricote?

    Me like!

    I would've guessed Marchlewski. Awesome bass, I love the design!
