    Im not a fan of that look. It looks like someone took a sharpie and colored the pickup poles, knobs, and bridge. it would probably look better without a pick guard

    Eh i think some of the black looks kinda tacky/fake. Almost as if it was a normal bass and someone just spraypainted over everything. It looks like the color would chip off/scratch easily on most of the things, such as pickup poles and stuff.

    Although I swear against black instruments (personal taste) I have to say that This one is appealing to me. The quality does look cheap but it looks kinda stelthy

    I like the ebony fingerboard, other than that nothing special.... ( besides I do not like painted necks. :spit: ) As far as the all black metal....electroplating really isnt that expensive...

    I would buy it if I had the funds and it was much cheaper. IMO, whoever is selling it is focusing on its "limited edition" status rather than what really matters....

    Personally I think that kind of money would be "better" spent going towards a "better" bass. *shrugs* :bag:

    Switches the p-ups between single coil, series, and parallel.
  10. the black onyx sterlings are really cool. But I'm a Stingray man :bassist:
  11. I think that's the first stringray i've ever liked.
  12. I think that is the coolest bass EB/MM ever built. There was a thread about someone getting one for, I think, 750 dollars. What a deal!
