looks like a B.C. rich eagle.
I would like to see those d!"m 5 string necks with binding and block inlays.
I like it too.
By the way, this shape is a loose interpretation of another design; a now extinct bass from ages past. Any guesses as to what is is?
It looks like it could use a Novax fanned fret neck.
Actually, what it reminded me of was a '98 MJ Mirage Rally. I mean, that's not really "ages past" but it's what I thought.
Here's a pic of one from HCGAF:
I like it too, but it would be a bit much on the tail end unless you want like 6 knobs. I think I'd have to get it sanded down an inch or 2 at the bottom.
Let's hope they come out with a Carl Thompson body. That'd be SWEET.
OK, I was smirking a little when I said "ages past", but the extinct part is dead on.
The name we gave it is a hint...
Looks like your school bass with some hard edges, B.
Z + extinct has got to mean the late great Tony Zemaitis, althought I don't recognize that to be one of his shapes right off the bat.
I'd say it looks like a BC Rich Eagle.
I can't say I like it, but it IS an improvement on the Rich.
not my style...but nice to see warmoth coming out with new stuff~!
Brian, are you trying take us to school? If so, you'd better be the dean or something.
Actually, it looks just like the old Zeta Prism bass...
I've said it once and I'll say it again "It amazes me how fast you guys can post info on here." That Zeta was dead-on....
...always wanted one of those.....*
Amazing the amount of useless infomation we're carrying around, isn't it?
Yep, I always thought the Zeta was a cool shape. The bottom part reminds me of the MJ Mirage, too, and a little bit of the Kubicki Factor...
Yeah, I figger that's why Warmoth calls it the "Z-bass" body.
Doh! I think you're right!
I dunno... that lower horn just looks like it's melting, or, dare I say, flaccid. Kinda goofy lookin'.
We have a winner!!!
We beveled the lower horn a bit ala the Eagle, but otherwise it's pretty much a Zeta tribute.
I don't want to hijack this thread, but I also saw a Gecko body on the site that could accommodate the deluxe 5 neck. As a guy that prefers a 34" scale and likes the Gecko, does anyone here know whether they are considering going into regular production with those as well?
Well, we can make one to order if that's what you mean. The 'G5' is the Deluxe 5-compatible Gecko-styled body, and the 'Z5' is the Deluxe-5 version of the bass this thread is about. (So as not to be completely off-topic.)
