    Jens is a true artist, it's just hard for me to really get into his basses.

    I would just love to go up on stage with that. The wow factor alone justifies it.

    I can understand why this is not for sale though:

    That said, I really admire his work. It is fresh and different, and this is coming from a J bass/precision type guy.

    The prices though:eek:

    I love seeing these basses. Something totally different yet artistic. The bass with the quilt top with the greenish-blue neck is just beautiful. It's like looking into the waters of Lake Michigan in the summertime!

    This has a number of aspects I like. I also like the way he hides the jack sockets and machines heads... all be it in an aukward position.

    They are nice looking instruments... but niche...

    Although I think much of his basses are too flashy I think as works of art these instruments are stunning.

    Those new ritters are all very sexy, but the boner sure goes down once you look at the price.
  9. The red "dagger" bass was made for Sharon Stone.

    It plays a crucial role in her ongoing promotional efforts for "Basic Instinct: 2"...........

    why dont you just say he's a true artist and leave it at that, or you want him to lose business?

    I could really dig playing that red dagger bass though, looks like fun ;D
  13. People pay considerably more than that for custom Series II Alembics, so I guess you could call Ritter the "Alembic of Europe". There's obviously a market there, or he wouldn't still be building!

    I dont doubt it, I'll own an Okon someday :D
  15. They are truely amazing, the artwork is there right down to that layout of the screws that hold the neck onto the body (check the different patterns in some of them)

    And that platinum foil one is just immense!

    Not trying to come down on anyone.

    But, if someone wanted to own a ritter some comment like that I highly doubt would make Jens lose any significant buisiness.

    Plus everyone's entitled to thier own opinions, especially if they don't say it in a rude manner.
