    Cheers, Sam

    Is that a Black Satin Finish? Best finish for metal indefinetly.

    Gotta admit they did a pretty good job w that one there. :) How many companies can turn their logo into a bass without it looking completely ridiculous. I'm a fan.

    How much does something like that go for? Surprised that it's a rockbass.

    Rammstein, Lordi, Gwar... maybe even for Muse

    I always thought metal was a matter of manly fury power and speed, not kitsch, but I must often be definitely wrong:scowl:

    Cheers,

    It's a W.
    To be "Most Metal", it needs to be turned around.
    Metal starts with M.
     
  7. Wow, wonder how comfortable it really is to play that, however most should never have a problem identifying the manufacturer of that one ;)
     
  8. Well, it could be Wetal. Or maybe Weath Metal, perhaps?

    As a huge Warwick fan, I would hang that on my wall.... but that's about it.

    I think you've got it figures, looks like that's exactly the point of the bass.

    No, the finish is Black Satan.
     
  13. Is Framus gonna have a new guitar shaped like the letter "F"? Quite a few uses for that. Haha!

    Unless your band name starts with "W" that would be a completley waste of money :) IMO, of course :)

  17. Dude! You're the target audience of this bass! Your name is Wallace; this bass would be the ultimate self-promotion.

    :D
     
  18. Weirdly interesting.
     
  19. Whoa! In all the commentary regard the W bass, I missed your comment that the Rockbass lineup now includes an upright. Very cool!
