    i only started this post to make fun of it. Its cool i think to do art, so some rich dude can buy it and put on his wall, but that would be about it, pretty expensive wall art if you ask me.
     
  5. hmmmm....doesn't that superman logo belong to DC comics or something? Isn't it illegal to sell such an article without a copyright agreement?

    $1900? NO WAY! IF you can get one signed by Chris Reeve...maybe.

    Shaq plays bass? The only basketball player I knew that played was Wayman Tisdale.

    This bass is quite funny, but I'd never spend 1,900 for such a thing...

    It would be a great instrument to play R.E.M's cover of "Superman" on though.

    So, just because you don't see the point means it's stupid? :rolleyes:

    I suppose you could do better? Can you find a Superman bass for cheaper? If not, then what gives you the right to question his asking price?

    That amount of carving on an instrument is not easy, and it appears to be a pretty damn good job.

    But, I guess it's "cool" to make fun of stuff just because you don't like it, right? :rollno:

    First bass or guitar I've seen in decades with only one control knob, a volume----that would be a thrill to operate. Looks too much like a movie prop to be any worth on stage, IMO.

    He says "Email me with any questions."

    I want to send him one that says "What are you, some kind of idiot?".

    Oh, well. As of now, it has 290 views, and I have a feeling it's just hits from this thread...

    i didn't see anything that mentioned "stupid", just funny-looking. furthermore, making something out of a protected emblem and then selling it without permission IS stupid. the dude's going to get himself slammed.

    wow, man. just wow. :eyebrow:
