The Perfect Metal Bass...For Heavey Metal Only!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Rod Harder, Mar 22, 2005.


  1. I got an email from the company that makes this beast and had to share it with you all......the phrase "Best Growling Tone" made me think of someone here on TB who should probably own one of these. Also, just what is "Heaveynism"... :eyebrow:
    I wonder.........anyhow, here's the ad for the bass in question:

  3. It's from a Korean company called OBG Custom, they have a few different basses on their site, but this one just reeks of "Heaveynism" to me..... :eyebrow:

    Got a link? I'm interested in seeing what they're made of etc. etc. Maybe someone could pass this off to a certain blankblankBassist we know...

  5. That's funny, I thought of the same TB'er when I saw the term "Heaveynism"........check them out at www.obgcustom.com -they are under the MuBass section.

    Gimmick. You could make one of those short scale flower-shaped girl basses work for metal if you wanted.

    Interesting they don't say what the body wood is... it's certainly no Spector :D

    Heavey? Is that what you do because you've laughed so much at the bass and its description?

    Once again, the dripping sarcasm of my initial post has been missed entirely...... :rollno:
    My post was more about the "Engrish" involved than the bass itself......

    hehe, I noticed that. Their designs suck IMO though... :scowl: and I doubt they're as growly as an MTD :D

    The top is a burl.. probably maple.
    It says the back and neck is Bubinga.

    That sucker probably weighs more than a Warwick Thumb!

    Interesting that the control setup includes an on/off switch.
    Don't know for sure that I've ever seen that before.
     
  15. It may not be heavier, but its definitely heaveyier

    Yeah I saw the "on/off" switch. I wonder if that is just a pickup selector.
     
  17. Anyone who missed out on the joke needs to pay a lengthy visit to http://www.engrish.com/ :)

    But it is the most gracefull V style bass ever! .... 300 pounds of neck dive looks like to me ... maybe not. Wish them luck:)
    Back to topic though... Maybe they think it seems more metaltastic to use strange words... Wouldnt be suprised to see an add for a Mark Hoppus with things like BuY ThIs Ba55 AnD U R0xX0R! My leet speak is a little rusty...
