    I've like the SpaceBass ever since I first saw it on the LightWave site. Nice.

    I dig the Space bass. Not so much the headstock, but definitely a cool body design.

    That's my fave TUNE body shape, I've been looking for one of those for awhile.

    I like that this bass is "straight to the point"... :rolleyes: :D
    Sorry was i bit too pointy? ;)

    ::ducks from bass flying at him::

    I hope i didnt miss the point of this bass, but that was a nice throw! :D

    i've been told its called "reverse sunburst".

    looks like i'm gonna have to be patient on this one. he (the owner) loves to make me squirm by holding it out like a carrot.

    but, DAMNIT, IT WILL BE MINE!!!!!!!!!!

    i love that shape!!!

    i can't find any net info on the space bass .

    http://www.cc.rim.or.jp/~tune/

    i see that Tune was quite a prolific company.

    i found a collector's site yesterday, didn't bookmark it and can't find it today.
