    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!

    Is it just me, or would that muck up the balance something terrible?

  12. 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:
