    it's aweful

    a waste of time and construction supplies
  2. I wonder who buys those mini replica guitars- considering they cost $350 upwards.
    businessmen looking for office ornaments?

    - ah, that's it- record company fatcats:p

    No, your spelling is awful. And, who are you to say someone else's art is a waste of time and construction supplies? You could make a better one?

    Looks like a pretty good replica, to me, considering it's 15 inches long.

    Do I really see a need for one? No, but that doesn't mean it's something I'm going to ridicule.

    Well, being illiterate isn't something to be proud of. (I’m not saying you are illiterate, but the general idea of not being embarrassed for misspelling a word such as awful pretty much says that you wouldn't care if you are ignorant or not.)
  6. Hmm. I can't say I like it. It's done pretty decently, but just seems a bit silly.

    Geez. $400. You could buy a new MIM Jazz for that, couldn't you?

    I guess anything goes if you call it art.

    I think a full size replica that can be played is a better tribute to Jaco, but that's just me.

    To each his own.
  10. Who said it was well done??? The headstock shape isn't even close to the real one... :rolleyes:

    no matter what the topic is and if it relates to someone or not,there seems to be a need for nasty little remarks. like digs about someone else's spelling or punctuation or conflicting opinions," LET US CLEAN OUT OUR OWN BACKYARD BEFORE WE START COMMENTING ON OUR NEIGHBORS PROPERTY"all those little digs do is cause trouble and i've seen all of us do it ranging from MOD'S,SUPPORTING MEMBERS,REG MEMBERS AND GUESTS doing it, myself included.If you dont like someones opinion of something live with it especially if it does'nt pertain to you specifically. Send them a privete message stating your concerns,who really gains from public attacks?does it make us feel cool to make fun of others? I will speak for m/self when i say i too participated in attacking someone in a public forum,but i appologigized publically and privetely after i realized how stupid I sounded. this is not directed at anyone person it is a little bit of advive for all of us(me included)if this has nothing to do w/you i appologize.;) if you think it might be directed at you,your probably correct so lets treat others as we would like to be treated, if you are angry over what i said respond privetly you know where to find me:)

    does this thing actually work? or is it just a little doo-hicky for the mantelpiece or cofee table,OR if i gave it to a midget would he be able to rock out " A PORTRAIT OF TRACY" on it ?

    I cant justify paying 400 bux for that but I think its kinda neat. I would love to have a wee little bass to take with me that looked just like my real bass just 1/2 the size.
