New Wish bass...

    It seems ol' Wishy is running out of body designs, and trying to scrap old ones out of the barrel. Also with the cat .gif, makes her seem kinda desperate...

    also like the quote "the combination of the frets & the truss rods make it a real one of a kind!!!!!!". Well, one of a kind in HIS luthier domain, or mud puddle, depending on how you wanna look at it.


    edit: didn't realize it was a her, not a him :oops:

    you want to buy the bass.
    yessssss
    & then you will bring me fishheads & mice.


    That alone made looking at the auction worth it.

  5. I think that one looks pretty good compared to his other basses. I have definitely seen progress.

    interesting - sorta got a mouradian vibe going on, like chris squire's old instrument.

    these two certainly look like they have a bit better finishing going on than some of the older ones. i wonder how well the frets are placed on that long horn.

    "it is in absolutely the exact same condition as it was the day it was shipped to him!" Some how that doesn't put my mind at rest concerning what kind of shape the bass is in.

    Now, let's see. No huge gaping holes near hardware? Almost semi-decent finishing job? Even the frets look almost straight.. Gentlemen, mount up. I feel someone has kidnapped dear ol' Wishy! :eek:

    Bleh, Wishy-jokes are getting old. But one thing comes to mind: perhaps Wishy is the evil twin brother of Mike Tobias? I mean, in TV they are exact opposites, and here we have Mikey T crafting wonderful instruments..

    Hopefully they're better placed than the fret dot markers... :D How hard is it to get a ruler and to draw a straight line down a bass neck to place the dot markers?

    I like this quote from the description:



    it also has a truss rod which is another special option!!!!!!
    the combination of the frets & the truss rods make it a real one of a kind!!!!!!
