Prolly a wonderful bass.
It looks like somebody put a lacquer over vomit.
it's blue right?
the back looks good.
I don't think it's blue. I think it's mostly blackish and shades of gray.
Its ugly, but i wouldnt mind owning it
i'm with ya bro
A lot of people like buckeye. Also keep in mind John doesn't seem to take very good pictures.
Not sure what the point of tearing down any bass's appearance is.
I don´t know... maybe the pic doesn´t do it justice?
I dig the arrow inlays at 24th fret, Reminds me of a tuner!
i will not . i'm not a fan of buckeye burl. i rarely even appreciate the beauty of them. sometimes there are basses that aren't for me, but i can appreciate their aesthetics anyway. buckeye burl does not qualify.
+1 I never found buckeye tops attractive. Im more of a spalted maple or quilted maple guy.
Oh, come on. I'm just so tired of all these guys who can't afford good, straight-grained wood trying to sell these rotten leftovers to us. Heck, Keith Roscoe even uses Purpleheart that's not purple 'cause it's been invaded by that Spalt fungus! What a rip. Almost as bad as that weird fad started by that one guy (Pastorini?) that took his frets out, and couldn't get 'em back in.
Pastorius? Are you serious.
I do doubt it...
That's a mighty big pickguard.
(Mother of Puke-O)?
Oh, Italian,huh? Figures. Yeah, took his frets out for some reason, tried to epoxy 'em back in, didn't work, went around trying to convince folks it sounded just as good. Now the bass manufacturers are getting away with selling bass without frets, charging just as much as if they had completed the job...
Not a fan at all of buckeye burl. I think it looks hideous, frankly, but that's just my opinion and it's worth no more or less than anyone else's.
To each her/his own.
I like it, but then again, I like buckeye burl in general--there's something about the bone white->blue gray range of colors that I dig.
Thank goodness we all don't have to like the same thing, eh?
that's the right on. you said it all, man.
