Interesting Ritter, hate it or love it

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by modulusbassist, Mar 16, 2002.


  1. This is an interesting Ritter, never seen a bass like it before, I like it, just because it's unique, anybody has ever played this particular bass?

    It looks like it came out of "The Terminator 2" movie

    I think JT played the golden 7-string Seal at Namm, we had some Ritter threads and he mentioned it in one of them.

    Hate it.

    Looks more like a decorative pin, than a bass.

    Bling Bling! I like it. It wold probably suck to try to keep the fingerprints off of, though! And I like the Jupiter, too.

    Stunning is an appropriate word.

    I like it. Wouldn't the crowd hate it though? I know I wouldn't appreciate blazing stage lights being relfected off that bass into my eyes :p

    I dig it much! Kinda futuristic, but got a bit of 50's pulp vibe. Cool stuff.

    Can't that be fixed, though?

    I love the Seal. It's totally out there, which is what makes it cool. I'd love to play and hear it!

    jens took it back to germany to fix it. i imagine it's probably fixed by now. i emailed him about my present financial situation :)( ) since i told him i was going to buy the bass. maybe someday soon.
