    wooooahhh....that thing's freakin me out. I'm not sure if I love it or hate it.....leaning towards maybe. I'd buy that thing in an instant though, definitely a conversation piece.

    I really love the way the end of the fingerboard matches the angles from horns. That bass really does look more like a finished work of art, rather than a tool for creating art.

    I'd play it (I love fretlesses)...

    but finding a gigbag might be tough;)

    Just wrap it in bubble wrap..... :D



    I agree with Woodchuck... Different is about all I can say.
     
  8. wow, that one took me away when I first came across this thread, i like the design, but wouldn't it be a bit odd to play sitting down? I do think i'm starting to like it

    Looks like he may have seen a Spalt Matrix.

    Very artsy, I kind of like it.
     
  14. Quite beautiful... I love that desing,, its so contemporary..

    Where do you access the thruss rod from? the headstock?
     
  15. Must be headstock, I think I seee a curvy thing on it near the nut...

    I love it..but then, I always like wacky stuff...Reminds me of a tamed Spalt Matrix.

    I wouldn't be able to make that judgement without playing it first. Doesn't look like a problem just from the pics.

    With all of the curves and angles the in-line knob arrangement is interesting.

    I agree with Jeff and Brooks, I see a bit of a Spalt bass in this one too... not that there's anything wrong with that:D

    Interesting Hyperbass/Spalt mix.
    The headstock is a total failure.

    I'd like to see it besides a known entity for reference, like side to side with a Fender bass.

    Call me a Cretan and a boor but I just have no apreciation for such things. It's like wearing mink to the local tractor pull. Whatever blows your hair back. :p
