    They sound like really great basses and truthfully I would like to try one. But boy are they ugly!!!

    I know a dealer that has 2 brand new, but several year old Reverends. I tried to sell a bass to buy the 5er, but ended up trading for a Zon 5/1 instead :meh:

    Anyway, the 5er has the bubble looking metal finish (whatever that's called) and a rosewood board, he told me he'd take $550 for it. The 4 string is gold with a maple board and white pickguard (classy looking), I didn't ask for a price since I only do 5s.

    Just passing this along...
     
  7. And I never even got the opportunity to try one...
    :crying:

    That would be bugeye black chrome:

    although I'm not sure why the "black" is in the name. It can look black-ish from the right angle in the right light but it's more "chrome" than "black" most of the time. My bandmates call it "bumper plate".
     
  10. hey, at least they don't look like toilet seats! :D
     
  11. Thumper, any contact info on this dealer?

    I was close to buying one of these twice...they sound great, and look pretty nice too, in my opinion. No flow = No fish

    I'm bummed. I really wanted a Brad Houser 5, but I'm way over my bass GAS limit for the year. :bawl:

    i am bummed too. i have a 'Fish and it's a GREAT bass. both in sound, feel and playability.

    a tone monster.

    i am also sad because usually we say that bass players are more open minded than guitar buddies.

    this time we lost.
