    Got this little beast over the weekend. Best packed instrument EVER! Kudos to Fenderhutz!

    Rewired it, modded a tele control plate and slapped some 40 year old Gibson NOS flats on it. This is one easy playing, growly, grindy beast. This is one mutt that has found a good home.

    Love it! What actually IS it's lineage?

    It's quite a "fashion statement"!

    I don't know but it certainly has quite the vibe going. It's ugly as sin....perfect punk/blues bass.

    Ugly in a good way...I'm a peculiar guy that likes funky things...when I say it's ugly...I think it's cool as hell.

    I love those kind of tailpieces, a combination of a stop tailpiece and an "ashtray" cover... as if the guys in Japan were looking at photos of a Fender and trying to figure out what that chrome thing at the end of the strings did.

    Hmmm.. I think it does this...

    Love it!
     
  9. That bass needs to be posted in the "best looking bass on TB?" thread. It's definitely one of the coolest.
     
  10. I'd like to see a pic of the entire bass, all at once.

    It's super short scale...maybe 6.5 pounds. I'll post in the beautiful bass post for grins. I'll post a full body shot when I get on my desktop.
