thought i'd start a new thread for this.
she's a player!!! very modern tone!
Is the bridge mounted on an angle?
Looks cool........but I'm not a fan of the upper horn.
better pics of this and my RED SPACE BASS later!
nope, machined at an angle.
cool design! made out of aircraft aluminum (7075-t7)
if you're not a fan of that upper horn:
here's the spacebass i got last night too!
Is that 36 frets on the space bass?
where do you get these basses?
YUP! 3 octave 36" scale. will take some getting used to!
i got these from a private party. the original Tune (Japan) went out of biz.
there's a Korean Tune now, but no where near what the old was!
quite the Tune society out there. they seem to be collectible.
i'm happy with them!!!
I have an old Tune Bass Maniac that's a hell of a bass. It's the lower end Tune, but it's one of the old, Japanese-made variety and it is SWEET!
It's a deep purple burst, which I'm actually going to sand down and refinish in natural wood.
Welp! I'm headed over to the luthier section....
very nice. space bass is a pretty good name for that axe.
Fred those are some wacky basses I like the first one a lot, very cool modern theme.
Fred, could you post a pic of the Space Bass next to one of your Zons, for a spatial comparison (in particular that upper horn of doom)? I've never seen a space bass next to another bass, so I'm interested in how it compares to others in terms of size and whatnot.
sure, i'll post some pics later.
i was really surprized at how SMALL the Spacebass body was when i picked it up.
its a LEFT LEGGER fer sure!
the Space Bass sure is a tone monster.
requires a super light touch.
36" is a beastly scale!!!
Wow, a 36" fretless-INTONATION HELL!!! Looks great though-very unique!
I used to have a TWX-5 in padauk. It played beautifully, looked great, and sounded crystal-clear. Tune made some sweet basses.
Congrats on the space bass!
both look great ... two nice finds .. you'll adjust to the scale if carpal doesnt kill you first .. hehe j/k .. enjoy!
