  2. I'm thinkin' of getting the swiss army bass...

    "For example, the Swiss Army model has special attachments. These allow the user to activate a swing out beer holder and ashtray."

  3. Atleast he's honest about what he's selling


    Have you listened to the soundclips of their Touchstyle instruments though? They sound very cool, and they dont look too bad either

    From the website:

    TOUCHSTYLE instruments have a 34" scale, with 10 or 12 strings, and 24 frets. Two EMG pickups send bass and treble signals to a stereo output jack. The blunt description offered in the earlier manifesto doesn't apply to these guitars. High quality hardwoods including mahogany, maple, walnut and occasionally oak form the neck and body of these tapping beauties. A rubbed oil finish brings out the rich grain of these contrasting woods. Call or E-mail for a quote on pricing.

    Im assuming the rest of the website is a marketing gimmick or a luthier just having fun. the touchstyle guitars look good enough to be warrs. bet they are expensive, or at least not cheap, too.

    Krappy's also a member here, and a rather strait forward guy from what I've seen from his posts.
