    Unlike the mothman, this bass actually looks good.

    So, the same radioactive spider that bit Peter Parker bit a Wishbass?
  6. Not gonna lie, I kinda dig the inlays. Not in a 'put them on my bass' kinda way, but they're pretty cool.

    I'd say well-made rather than looks good, but to each their own.
  8. Pure awesome!

    Clearly this bass should be named Boris.

    Looks like it escaped from a Level 4 biohazard containment lab somewhere...

    I think it's utterly ridiculous but it takes some serious skill to carve that thing.

    I would guess it is a piezo bridge since there are no pickups. Probably sounds pretty acoustic-ish (is that a word?).

  20. Apparently it is one of a set of three distinct basses and two of three are up on the ‘ Verb. Too rich for my blood and not my style at all but YMMV…or not.
