  2. hey, that's actually not bad! people that don't like star wars wouldn't even notice it, and people that do would think it's really cool. win-win!

    Hmm... Mike Mills won that huh? Looks like the bass player from one of my favorite bands, REM, will be playing a new bass.

    No Photoshop on my PC, cap.

    As far as I know, it's real - (check out the site mentioned in the pic). I don't get it either........ but then, with Wishnevsky's instruments, that's a healthy sign.

    Rickbass, I think they'd have to go with a Jabba the Hutt motif on that sucker...

    Well, let's give ourselves credit - At least we bassists didn't have the poor taste to create a market for the Dale Earnhardt guitar!!!

    "Yessiree, bob, Winona Bob.....fetch me thet ther guitar and a 12-pack of muh sumbitchin' Pabst before I smack the crap outta ya in this hyar trailer so's we can be on thet there "Cops" show on the TeeVee! with awr 12 cats" :rolleyes:

  16. hahahaha! i think a leslie speaker would be a better commemoration. it just goes around in circles over and over again.
     
  17. Cool! I now know what bass I want for my solo turn in which I "shoot" the audience with my Boss Bass Synth laser effect. Maybe a laser pointer mounted in the headstock would complete that effect. Nice custom work....but I'd build a Warmouth with a reinforced or composite neck.

    That's just one very sad Wal owner with a sticker, isn't it Jeff?...........(tell me it is!).

    I can't imagine Wal making a production run of those like Gibson did or that a market exists for them.
