    As suggested by Midnight Jazz on another Krappy thread, we should repeat the "let's buy a Wish" thing with one of Kevin Siebold's (aka Krappy Guitars) 2-string "punk rod" basses - buy one and pass it around among the forum members who sign up and pay a few bucks, let them use it for a few days and then pass it on to the next victim.


    They cost $75, so considerably cheaper than a Wishbass. We could get a small-bodied one, too, to cut down the amount of money UPS is going to make off the whole thing.

    I'm not the best person to organize this as I haven't been very active on this board and I'm also planning a transatlantic move in a few months. Does anybody else want to step up and coordinate this?
  2. If we could find another person or 2 in College Station to pitch in, it could be very easy. Plus, we could see it played live for an extra chuckle. I'd throw 20 bucks into it considering shipping wouldn't be an issue. If someone wants a national tour for it they could organize it and I would send it on.

  5. If you go for a visit, see if he has a flippitar lying around. Sound pretty interesting.

    Seeing as we've got two interested people in College Station already I'll ask a couple of my non-TB bassist friends if they want to pitch in. It could start with a local tour and then go national, yeah.

    That stuff cracks me up. Just wanted to plug into this thread cuz I'm actually considering a 2 string myself. If they're really playable I think I'd get one - waitin for the review Fenderx55. :) Hi too, never seen ya before and it seems we're from the same hood.

    I'm seriously tempted to get a doubleneck version with a two-string neck and a one-string neck. That would be more expensive and harder to ship around the country (no, I don't want a flippitar) but even more ridiculous.

    Say, maybe we should pitch in and buy John Turner one with three two-string necks and one one-string neck. Another multi-necked seven-string for his collection...
  12. With all this 2 string bass talk, I think I'm gonna take my Squire down to 2 strings to use for a chunk of my drum and bass gig tonight. If I find that trap set, timbales and 2 bass strings works out, I may have my gimick set for life and would be on my way to a punk rod endorsement deal. Any interested parties should report to Revolution Cafe and Bar at 10:30 tonight.
