    I doubt that the bass in that website link is the same bass. Just a custom Traben he already has and not his signature but I could be wrong. This is why:

    That bass on the site has neither so I doubt its the signature model

    No, you're wrong...look again. The bass that he is holding does have shooting stars on the fretboard and the bridge also has a similar design. The resolution of your monitor may not show the picture as is it. On my monitor it is as plain as day.

    i think there soo ugly
    some guy tried selling me one at s local store and almost all they carried

    Yeah I edited my post above to somewhat agree. I just really hope thats not it because when I think shooting star I think a bass more like this

    Yeah, Traben uses the word "bridge" to refer to the entire decorative metal plate across the front of the body. On the one he's holding, each of the pointy flame-job bits has a little star at the tip.
     
  9. Looks cool.

    I really dig the inlays.
     
  10. the washburn sig is better...that traben is horrible, they all are
