    I was about to bid $50 on that thing, but then I noticed that shipping would cost another 50 bucks :(
     
  11. you can always tell a wishnevsky not only by the disgusting design of the bass but also by the same, equally disgusting rug in the backround of all the photos.

    That would be a blanket. Yep, looks like one of those nasty-ass scratchy wool ones too.

    Actually, I've spotted them in the listings before just because they start off "Mahogany..." or "Walnut..." instead of with a brand name. :)

    I kind of like his work. If he would make the necks adjustable, I would buy one.
     
  15. Looks like it'd burn well on the fire during those cold winter months! :D
     
  16. I've seen this monstrocity on Ebay before with the same back drop (I wonder which is worse !). Hell, I wouldn't buy it either.
     
  17. Let me tell you something from experience; that bass is worse then five years of being a teenager...

    :eek:

    Apparently another diseased tree fell in his yard. I was wondering when the next Wishnevsky atrocity would appear.

    I guess it only has a volume control because whoever would pay money for that wouldn't know what the hell a tone control does. Or, it could be too confusing.

    It's on the UK eBay. I guess these things are banned on the US eBay now???......and England thought Mad Cow was bad :eek:
