    Whats so great about a pentabass?
     
  2. It's like a penta-house.

    It means you live in the upper crust of society.

    If you're talking about a Penta Systems bass, there was a long thread about them a while back, called "For those who love the lows", started by Jauquo III-X. In answer to your question, nothing.

    I'm not sure I can explain why they are so great, but I know it's the first fretless I played that I liked. I like it so much I bought on last Sunday. I think part of it is the fact that the fretboard is finished in a polyester coating that provides a very distinct feel and sound. One things for sure, I LOVE mine.

    That would be a pentabuzz. Which may be what he was talking about.

    Oops. I guess I've got Pentabuzz on the brain, since I just got one.

    Pentabuzz = fantastic Pedulla fretless bass. (As in catphish's post.)

    PentaBass = Penta Systems deceptively marketed fairly ordinary bass. (As in con-john's post.)

    Penthouse = big apartment at the top level(s) of an apartment building, requiring big bucks. If you have one of these, you already have a Fodera or Carl Thompson. ;) (As in BLIMPLIKZIT's post. ;) )
