    From the site:
    "Nine string, fanned fret, guitar/bass, Maple neck and fingerboard,
    Walnut body, very playable... the long arch from the body to the peghead adds stability to the neck, and provides a place to mount a strap button at the balance point."

    "Close up of bridge and pickup..intonation is quite good, however if you plant to play nine string chords above the 12th fret, I will be glad to mount adjustable bridges."

  2. oh lord. it doesn't even look like he can keep a file straight, the body looks all bumpy and rough.

    Wow, the string through holes are actually lined up, unheard of quality from Wish. Pickup angle looks wierd and using the crappy bridge on a 9 string instrument is just a joke. Oh dear.

    That headstock actually works on that Wish ... as far as Wishes go thats pretty good
  6. you know, i think i'll got out on a limb and say that i like it...i wouldn't spend half as much as wish is asking for it, but i like it better than what he usually comes out with...
  7. looks like one of those weapons the wookies had in that last star wars movie
  8. Did he buy a novax board to put on there? Hmmm?

    Do the strings looks like guitar strings to anyone but me? If this beast does not have two truss rods that attached upper horn is'nt going to do jack squat in keeping the neck stable.

    I bet he put the fanned frets in just so he would have an excuse for not routing the pickup "cavity" straight :ninja:

    What the hell does that mean??? If the intonation is quite good, why would you need to (or be able to) adjust the bridge when playing chords above the 12th fret???

    Why the hell doesn't this guy get his act together? I think some of his ideas are great, if he would just put 15% more effort into them. It doesn't take a genius to rout a cavity correctly.

    It is ugly and should burn in bass hell. I'm sorry, but I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole.

    On a positive note; When a fighting game comes out and you can use bass guitars to fight with, I know which one I'll be using...
