Has anyone here have one of these? I'm quite taken with a couple.
I like the reverse Ric inspired one
Not crazy about them from looks standpoint, though as already mentioned, that reverse-ric-style one is interesting!
I like Reversed Ric and the 'Least' Paul.
From the Samick factory?
hmmm... subbed... like the reverse Ric also
They look like they were photoshopped together... I'd be interested in the Ric one if I were left handed. Seems to me more like an Iceman type bass. As in: Cool looking but bad sounding, neckdives horribly, and is too hard to play.
I believe they are made in Japan. So I expect the quality to be pretty good, prob. expensive and definitely insane.
Yeah, I gigged with a Simmony for a good 18 months, great guitars, really they are just reshaped Jazz basses.
Quality is pretty good, the basses under $1K are either korean or chinese made but Japanese assembled.
They hold no resale value though, so keep an eye on ishibashi for used ones, a Killer 'Dagger' just sold for $180
Generic sounding, but interesting looking..
Never seen them before.
Oddly enough, the P/JJ at the bottom caught my eye - I think it was the Strat-style jack and the G&L-ish headstock that did it. Pretty interesting. I wonder how it sounds with the two pickups so close together like that.
I think Killer is owned by the guitarist from Loudness, Akira Takasaki.
Bumping this thread cause I got my eye on a used one of these. "Generic sounding but interesting looking" is pretty much exactly what I'm after, though I'd prefer a generic P to a generic J... would probably just use the neck pickup. And play it lefty!
So, any other opinions about these in general and the Simmony model in particular?
The basses are listed here and the English translations from Japanese are pretty dang funny!
Their website is here
Planning to get one of these next week! I was having some second thoughts, so I sent some pictures of it to a girl who used to do modeling and asked her what she thinks. She told me I must buy this bass, so that settles it.
Hope your store has one in stock.
The product of this place is now [of a reservation receptionist]. The arrival plans about November on the next time
I inform it of a current approximate delivery date by the reply email from a shop.
Because there is it when the appointed date of delivery is mixed up by production of makers circumstances, please let me send a news email if arrival information enters each time.
Our store can wait in peace until a product arrives.
Whoever wrote this would make an awesome tech writer.
LOL, I tracked down a used one in a country I'm visiting next week, so no need for [of a reservation receptionist] or a store that can wait in peace.
Got it now, strung it up for fifths tuning, and moved the strap button over to the left-handed side. So, I'm playing a right-handed bass that's shaped like a left-handed bass left-handed, lefty-strung-righty, and tuned in fifths so all the intervals are upside down. That's like quadruple upside down by my count.
Now to play a gig with it and find out just how much chicks dig it!
Here's my Killer, excellent bass all around....Built for JMJ and in a Beck Video.
What, no FIVE strings?
