    isit just me and jasonbraatz or I still think FBBs are ugly. I really like the tone that FBBs bring out but the body shape looks just don't do it for me!!
    argh!

    Looks pretty nice.

    The only thing I do see that I absolutely don't like about these basses is that the jack is on the top of the bass, instead of a side mounted jack. IMO, it just looks out of place on there.
     
  9. Same here. Same reason why I don't like the Pedulla buzz shape. Looks like a splat stain.

    I don't care for the knobs too much, but other than that I like it very much!! Congrats!

    Personal preference I guess. For me the non cookie-cutter shape is part of its allure. Besides the sound is what counts more than appearance... right??
     
  12. I've seen that bass...it used to have EMGs, if memory serves.

    Anyhow, well done--as long as it sounds good, who cares about appearance?

    Yeah it did. I don't think it looks the best, but I don't think it looks that bad either. It sounds/feels way better than it looks
     
  14. I quite like the bass but the Duvet is even better.

    I picked the knobs because I've never seen them used before on anything, plus they are random

    I guess the important thing is that YOU like them :)
