    wow nice. the bridge looks like some engine array of a starship.
     
  7. Benjamin,

    Are those quad or hex pickups at the bridge? And, btw what are you driving with them?

    Thanks,
    S

    Any Wishbass will fill the bill for strangeness. No photos necessary, as their garish shapes are seared in the memory of Talkbassers worldwide.

    Hex or quad? Beats me. They are Yamaha B1Ds, and I'm using a Roland Vbass with them.
