    I like it's tone!!!! The playing is a little subjective, but I actually think it sounds good (if you can separate the tone from the playing).

    Why is "Flaming Fart Gone Wrong" one of the related videos? Hahahaha.

    That bass (playing) sounds terrible, but it reminds me of Les Claypool's tone a bit, so I'm kind of interested in getting one now.

    That's the scary part - I'm pretty sure the bass playing isn't that terrible...it's the tone of that...that...thing!

    I'm actually a fan of that jew harp-esque sound he has. However the slides, bad intonation, and fretting faux paws are really killing it for me.

    Oooohhhhh mmmmyyyy. Now I see that not only does the man to a HORRIBLE job at building basses........his playing also follows that trend. Good lord, how could he even post that??

    Being a jew, I don't think that I've ever heard that term before. Also not sure if it was intended to be offensive or not. Curious more than anything (not angry at this point)...

    Probably meant Jaw Harp. To quote my daughter-"his playing makes Jesus cry."

    Thing is, I've seen some really really nice Wishbasses on here; primarily Thunderitter's and Gubna's.

    I'd love to see a demo of them playing it, as this doesn't give the full scope of a Wishbass.

    Also, old video is old.

    It's been done before. A LOT

    But, i'll move this to recordings, and see what those mods think.

    Its worth watching just to see the look on his face when he hits that last note. And the sound cuts off right before he throws the ol' 12th fret harmonic trick in there - as if it would do any good.

    My ears are bleeding.
