    Hey all,

    I'm working on a new bass design, and I like the name "Scarab", but I've got this nagging feeling that this name is already in use for a bass from someone else.

    Yes/No? Anyone know?

    Thanks!

    :^)~

    Nevermind, I found it. Hamer has a "Scarab" bass. Ah well, time to hit the Thesaurus...

    hmm.... anyone know the Klingon word for Scarab?

    Not sure.. But it probably couldn't be said without spitting all over potential customers, so might want to try the Vulcan or even Romulan translations..

    :D :p

    Or.. If you're not much of a trekkie, call it the Pointy Ear'd Leonard Nimoy.
