    Hmm...it's certainly an acquired taste...I hate it though!

    That would be the whole "vintage Ampeg AEB inspired" part.

    I've seen much uglier at much higher prices! :D

    I don't think it's bad, but my $600 is safe for now.

    :bassist:
     
  8. yeah, that's got the ugly about it, huh? :scowl:
     
  9. alright smartass, I only looked at the pic, I didn't bother to read the description
     
  10. i have been wanting one of those since i saw/heard rick danko play one on festival express--although i wouldn't buy from that seller, as (s)he seems to know very little about it. Also i don't like the pickguard :)
     
  11. It seems to be an aquired taste which none of us have aquired

    Wow.

    Talk about covering wood grain with a pickguard.

    As a genuine Scroll Head fan..this bass makes me....ill. Please check out www.xstrange.com to see lots of pictures and the history of the real thing and the newest incarnations of these very special basses. I played an original '68 all black Ampeg AMB-1 Scroll Head in the studios and on lots of touring from '68 to '76 and it always received praise for both looks and tone. I wish that I had it back, it was more or less stolen way back in '76. I'm hoping to have a replica done sometime next Summer.

    uhhh... nope.
     
  18. I like it.
     
  19. I like it too. It would look extra ugly if it had some sort of sparkley paint job like gold flake, or bright green flake.
