    I love that colour / wood combo but this bass doesn't pull it off unfortunately, IMO of course.

    I'd sell it too if it were mine.
     
  5. hmmmm...the guy waits 10 months to get this bass and then plays it twice in nearly 4 years???

    and he refers to the the push-pull pot for bypass as a "special feature"?

    i am sure that the photos don't do the bass justice...that purple is way cool...not my style, for sure...but still very nice indeed.

    Yo Jae! You never called! I got swamped with work and I'm like when he calls I'll leave for an hour... hahaha oh well.. Probably saved me a few grand.

    I'd hit it. I have a feeling the right light would make that purple look cool. You could also "tame it" with a white pearl pickguard. I'm a sucker for matching headstocks!

    Seeing that bass makes me think maybe i should have gotten a matching headstock on my Greenburst 5.

    HI

    Dont think so. Actually, I love it but I have 3 other jj's and a jj 5 string. Would be all over it if it had a pj setup. Someone is gonna get an awesome bass. Love the fretboard

    Did he really list "There are no finger prints on the hardware" as a selling point?! :meh: :scowl:
     
  18. I have major Sadowsky GAS right now but personally, I'd have to pass on that one - unless I got a gig in prince's band.
     
  19. You beat me to it....I am sure his Purple badness would hit it......and lick it....and caress it.....and.....and....and.....well you know! :D

    Peace,

    T


















    :oops: I'd hit it too if nobody was looking :oops:

    I think it's awesome looking, but comming from a person who plays a sparkley blue bass I don't think I have much credibility.
