  2. I've never seen a cheesier bass,.. j/k sorry my first thought..

    But when I actually look at it it has a unique salmon color...
    I can honestly say I've never seen anything like it...
    Are you planning on buying one Debbie..?
    And if so how much does it cost... :bassist:

    I wasn't planning on buying it but I love it because it's so unusual. I have no idea what it sounds like though! I can see the similarity to a swiss cheese. :D
  4. hmmm... can't really imagine a piece of swiss cheese having a great sound... :smug: just kidding... but it certainly is uhh, unique. :)

    This bass.... or one identical was used by the bassist 'Pepsi Tate' of the Welsh glam-rock band Tigertailz. I remember seeing him use it back in the day....

    I believe this bass came up on eBay UK about a year ago as well....

    Has ALOT of similarities to Charvel and Jackson basses. Headstock is almost identical, body shape (excluding the holes) is very similar and even the control cavity cover looks like the one on my Charvel.
  12. Somebody report this bass to BunnyBass.com for their Amusing Basses page!!


    They have a swiss cheese guitar, but not a cheese bass!

    I always get a kick out of this page! I'm sure a lot of you have seen it already. I don't know if they are still updating it, though.
  13. that is one ugly bass :meh:
