    That is purely brilliant. Any other features of the bass that you could possibly Pac-ify?

    I like the truth to be found in either side of the headstock...some days you get the ghosts, some days the ghosts get you. It's like a yin/yang thing.

    I thought the truth was "Pop pills, they make you invincible!" :eyebrow:

    I'd have preferred the pacman on the right side of the headstock to be the bottom tuner :p




    But I love it anyways! That's got the be the coolest/most original idea for tuners ever! :hyper:

  11. That looks photoshopped of the original pic. Either that or whoever sketched it is a crazy good artist.

    Too cool! :)

    Too bad I prefer Ms. Pac-Man...Was just playing it last night before a gig (while my drummer feared I'd screw up my wrist). I wonder if the bow could be added? For an alternate design, every fret could have a little dot, with a big one at the usual places and perhaps an apple at the octave.

  13. the pac tuners look cool as jean!!!

    i take its done so that no matter what side of the tuner is showin ( as they obviously have to turn!) the pac man is always chasing (on the higher strings) and running (on the lower ) ?

    Yes, they are, mohawk. More time consuming, but worth it ;)

    the inlays!

    frets 3 and 5 could have enemies on them; fret 7 could have pacman himself pointing towards the higher frets and then all the other frets could be pieces of food or whatever he munches!
