Stanley looks at the bass, and it plays itself...and it also sings “I Wanna Play For You”
Sounds pretty badass to me
Stanley been trolling TB
Last summer I shipped a Warwick Corvette in a Roadrunner semi padded case from Virginia to San Diego via FedEx that boxed it and with insurance for $180.
"Oneonta Guitar LLC is proud to acquire an exclusive distributorship representing two industry icons....." apparently one being Lieber, and the other the Spellcaster.
I guess I just can't walk and grok at the same time. I'm fine with it until everyone points and laughs, then it's all I can do to not start blubbering
Neat idea.... right up until that reverse headstock.
Why would Stanley spec a short scale. The man can probably palm a bowling ball.
Seems like it would make the fretting hand reach about the same as a 34".
His Alembics are shortscale AFAIK.
Greetings from ONEONTA, NY. I believe it’s Tom Lieber, Lieber Guitars in nearby Fly Creek, NY. cheers!
I know that much. But that's all I know. Don't know if Mr Lieber is making them or having them produced somewhere else. Do you know?
I emailed the company last night. Their phone # is the same as Mr Lieber's so it appears he's heavily involved in this.
Hey! Why should Marcus Miller get to have all the fun, right?
Seems like another very nice bass. One of many in that price range.
From that demo I didn’t hear anything exceptional in the tone. Just the usual bright modern bass sound that has become the current norm. Nor am I seeing much by way of innovation in the electronics. The original, three soapbar equipped, Godin Shifter already did a Strat-style 5-way switch with a push-pull that provided six distinctly different sounds. I don’t hear that big a difference between most settings on the SC Spellcaster.
And sorry, but that whammy bar has got to go. Yeah, yeah, I know, I know… I’m an “old guy.” But “to thine own self be true” as the saying goes. And if so, you just gotta draw the line somewhere. And for me that somewhere is a whammy bar.
Either way I’d enjoy taking it for a test spin. But I doubt we’ll ever be seeing too many of them out in the wild. So the likelihood of a “try before you buy” is pretty slim.
I wonder if Fender Strat pickguards are an exact fit, would open things wide up for cosmetics.
That's like his thing. His Alembics are SS as well.
The strat pickup layout hasn’t been a big hit with bassists in the past. Seems like a lot of hype when there are so many good short scales out there already.
I'm with you. I live just down the road from Oneonta. 25 frets, short scale, whammy bar. Love it.
I suspect this will be a blast to play.
