    Looks like a giant wasp or something......and where the hell is the body?

    I bet it has killer sustain though.
  4. Not ugly. Just real funny lookin'. :D:D:D

    Rock on
  5. Umm thats a bass? ... basses are supposed to be beautiful.. but thats.. thats ugly..well.. i donno..

    *looks like someone took a garbage bag..
    *threw a bunch of bass parts in it and some extra *wood peices..
    *added a bunch of glue..
    *and then shook the bag...
    *and took it out

    And thats what they got.. a mess.
  6. That is ugly. In the new Bassplayer they have a picture of a bass like that one reported stolen at NAMM. Who the hell would want to steal that "thing"?:D

    I saw one of those advertised on BP apparently, you can replace different parts to create a different body shapes. Or at least it's ergonomically balanced or some other high tech junk like that.

    Not the best thing to look at, though.
  14. that thing better sing like a stratavarious (sp?) and when you put it on it should induce an orgasm instantly. that's the only way i would ever even think of putting on and playing a "bass" like that. hey let's just give it to fieldy!

    It may hurt. Did BassNW steal it?
  17. Actually I kinda like it, it's a Spalt bass I reckon. I find it fascinating and I think it's made out of alloys and little wood.

    I owned one of those years ago, during Steinberger's heyday. Came in a shotgun case. I loved walking into my bank with that one;)
