  6. Ovation Magnum Panda Licker? Are those EQ Sliders?

    I bet it's a dub MoNsTeR!
     
  7. It used to be a dub monster. the front humbucker died, and I dont have $400 to have it rewound :( '

    The EQ is sliders because its a MagnumII. The I's had knob eqs
     


  8. This is far from ugly IMO. Awsome bass.

    Not ugly, to me at least. But probably the most qualified. My trio of Kramers. The 5(left) was sold to a friend who somehow cracked the neck almost in half. The XL(right) has a cracking neck joint and needs to be repaired before worth playing. And 'The Troll Bass' (middle) is really beat up and scary to look at up close. Spots of missing finish, dents, scratches, 15 years of abuse but is still my daily at home practice bass that I actually take care of setup wise. So it still plays awesome. Absolutely priceless to me.

    I think my Kramer is one of the ugliest basses I've ever set eyes on. The same used to go for my Corvette, but I lived it down.

    It's not mine, but I've always found Danelectro Longhorn to be perhaps the ugliest bass ever

    I think there is something to be said about an ugly bass. If one plays one they choose to supercede style and the ultra tree barf top and get down to loving (or hating) it for it's sound.

    I think I could rock that Dano oneday, but I'm not nearly old enough or punk enough just yet.

  14. I agree to some extent, never really liked the body shape of the Corvette, the top horn is decidedly phallic.

    However, I happen to love the Streamer body shape, but each to their own.

    Ack, I noted the steinberger bridge, but you're right, the knobs should have been a dead giveaway.
     

  19. damn, they should make a clavitar. That would be so sweet.
