Here's the pics; fire at will...
I think this one comes closer to his "work of art" idea. Isn't this bass the one designed by another guy?
looks pretty... hmmm... different. kinda like it...
The finish looks pretty neat. Is it really good or have the "three feet away looking good" finish?
Post some sound clips... I'm curious..
Yes, it was built and designed by John Blackburn, and the finish is of the 3 foot variety. I'll post in a few days....
I would think all that wood and glue would steal lots of tone, but it does seem like his quality is going up. I can't see any flaws like I usually can in his basses. I do like the classical guitar style headstock, wish more basses had those.
So you own two wishbasses?
I think you're probably in line for an endorsement contract.
Without you Ibanks, How would i laugh? It doesnt seem to look all that bad, does it sound okayish?
Looking good. No a fan of what he does but the bass looks good.
Yep, I'm the Owner of Lonely Hearts. Its not the player that my other Wishy is, but it sounds pretty good, like a Wishbass should...
I like it
I will never like that headstock, Ruins the basses for me.
Clever "Yes" pun there Ibanks
I like it!
Ibanks, you know I love you, and I want to help, but first, you're going to have to put down the whiskey! Actually not too bad. How's the lowend and what are the woods?
Thanks, I need the love, but the whiskey makes me smile.
I just played it again and have further impressions:
The finish is flakier than normal, Wish does a better job. I'd say the builder may be pretty new to finishing. I plan to refinish.
The sound is much thinner than my other wish; I can get the 'Jaco whine' and that mid-range rumble, but no deep bass.
The neck is actually close to normal and the finish is so thin there that its almost like unfinish, which I like. But, Osage Orange feels weird.
I really love the body design. Its light and the design looks good.
To be honest, this is sold as art and that it is more art than bass.
It's the metal plate holding the control knob that ruins it for me... I like the design otherwise.
