    well, i don't want to say just yet, as NAMM hasn't officially opened.

    but, it will certainly rock the bassboat!

    teehee!

    A couple of years ago, Zon and Michael Manring began developing a doubleneck (2 x 6 strings) Hyperbass. Is it finished?

    I heard they were going to, get this, make a bass in which the body AND the neck are ALL wood!! Radical man... :D They could be crucified in the music world for these kinds of ideas.

    Don't be silly. You can't fit a vacuum into a tube, much less an amp. Who would want to keep their vacuum in there anyway. That's the dumbest idea I've ever heard of.
