    I gig it!!! But I'm in the mood for a non FSO bass right now. So that probably means I'm skewed at the moment.

    (FSO=Fender Shaped Object)

  4. That guy could make a shovel sound great. I prefer traditional looking basses. This will take some getting used to. Id like to see some clips of him playing it.

    Pretty cool but wouldn’t gig with it. Just looks goofy...which can be cool sometimes. Sometimes. I just wish they’d release the NE2 without the gold hardware.

    I like unusual stuff, so I'm good with it, but it doesn't really matter what I like. If Nathan likes it (and his grin tells me he does) then that's all that matters!

    On the plus side, I doubt it has neck dive.

    Any specs available yet? Kinda medium-ish scale, though could be caused it's a headless.

    I'd love to get my hands on one of his 'regular' Yamaha sigs, but yeah, that thing, not so much...I guess I'm a bit of a traditionalist...

    The shape doesn't piss me off. I really don't like the big cut out section, I'd prefer it chambered to cut the weight down.

    It would be cool, but I am not into the headless thing anymore.

    I like the fact that Nathan is going with the six now.

    If they just filled in that top area that’s cut out on the bass I think it would look awesome. Of course, it would also probably weigh 20 pounds.

    Aside from those two issues, absolutely gorgeous bass.
