    It's amazing that some scumbagg could do that to a Gibson.

    Hangin is to good. I vote to beat him down with the bass and find out iffn his head has amazing hardness. My bet is the head will win. :meh:

    I think instead of using the term "customized" he should have used "butchered" that's horrible! The only way to justify that is if the body was ran over bay a car, and it's a fretless!

  13. Of course, chopping up ANY whole bass like that should be punished by sticking thin guitar string under their nails, but...

    Nothing done to those Gibson's could improve their sound so...so what?

    i think it's ironically appropriate considering what gibson has done to a few very fine bass and bass amp companies. :meh:
