    You've been here since '06 and you haven't seen the dozens and dozens of threads, posts, and jokes about Wishbass? Seriously? We even have a Wishbass owner's club.

    A bunch of people here own them.

    Apparently they do need some work on them after purchase.

    I think most people here who have done the work to them likes them.

    If I could play fretless I'd be damn tempted.

    Apparently it never accured to you to try the search function? Tons of info here on Wish basses. Good, Bad and Indifferent.

    So by "winking" are you admitting this was just a troll thread?

    Um...I don't want to be rude, but I don't think I can take that site seriously. Some of those body shapes look like they were salvaged from terrible cutting accidents. Plus, I don't know if lacquer should shine like it was applied with a basting brush.

    I must admit I don't like the Wishbass either! I have always thought they looked like some kids high school wood shop class project!

    I just watched a couple vids...they pretty much sound the same. That being said, it doesn't sound as humorous as it looks. Not absolutely terrible.

    But that story about a strange man showing up one day with a large piece of wood in his hands...haha!

    I was actually referring to the one where Steve Wishnevsky (founder of Wishbass) is demo-ing his product. But yeah.. Haha.

    Edit: Yup. There we go!
