    That bass doesn't really do it for me - just my opinion.

    lol...

    :eek: Wow, that thing is amazing. Wasn't that a NAMM bass?

    I have many questions to ask. I need details, man. Where did you get to play this? Overall thoughts? How did it play? How was the tone? Is that a piezo in the bridge? What do the knobs do? How much was it?

    And lastly... can I touch you? ;)

    I ended up with the quilted one in my avatar, but woah, that one was nice too. That's not a piezo, it's just the cool Ritter bridge.

  6. I'm sorry......

    Sorry, I just think Ritters are THE most repulsive basses on the planet.

    But, to each his own.

    More important than playing it... did you lick it?

    Coming from a conventional Jazz Bass lover...I for one think that's one cool bass! I'd enjoy playing that on a gig.

    I really like that bass. I don't think I would want to own it but I would like to see it and play it. How about a review!

    That thing had better play like a dream, because it looks like a nightmare.

    It looks as if the top horn will reach out and grab you if you fret to close to the body...
