    Thanks. I have noticed the last few basses he's had on TB has looked pretty good. I'm aching to get my hands on it!
     
  8. I really like the Longhorn bass he makes!

    Styled after the Danelectro Longhorn of the Fifties, but in beautiful Curly Cherry.
    Believe it or not, a similar bass could be yours for about $300.00

    I like the fact you can design your own basses for $300. Can't beat that.:D
     
  10. That's a sweet option!

    Give us a review once you take possession of your new WISH bass!

  11. Spoken just like someone that has NEVER held one in her own hands. DO NOT let the pics fool you Treena. These things are nothing like any bass instrument you've ever touched.

    Can someone explain this to me? Can I send him an email, with plans of my design for a bass? Or does it have to be one of his designs? I'm very interested in designing something, a type of 'Jazzmaster' bass.

    this one looks pretty good. the strings are over the fingerboard, no beer can-esque cavity cover, the bridge doesn't look too badly angled....the shape is a bit funky but looks almost like some weird piece of abstract...art....? :meh: :D

    I went to his web site and selected a set of options. I then whipped up a body shape in Corel Draw and sent him an email with specs and a picture. He sent me a quote, which I okayed. Then I go away for 2-3 months.;)

    OOh - I have a self-designed Wish as well, which just got a new set of tapewounds today and it sounds awesome! I'll hafta start a Show Us Your Wish thread when I get a shot of it. Then we can see what all our minds have come up with for Steve to make. Mine looks like a flame, sort of - I took his "Totally Wild" model shape and adapted it with normally sized horns and a pointy end - Impossible to sit with, but i'ma take an endpin setup and make it an EBGOAS (it's not fretless, but I attribute that to Bob Gollihur as he coined FEBGOAS)
