    That looks an awful lot like a Peavey.

    It's a Peavey Grind NTB.
     
  5. Yep. Played one a few days ago. Looks like they just did the inlay stuff, then put a gloss finish on it.

    Would have looked a lot nicer if the fretboard was ebony.

    Yep. Nice finish and inlay work, though, no questioning that!

    Take a look at the other items this guy is selling. Awesome stuff.

    Yep, Peavy Grind NTB. Looks like you get the inlay for free @300 clams, IIRC that is right around the street price of those.

    That's pretty impressive looking, there are some nice pickguards too but I didn't see any for basses. Shipping costs on the basses is considerable, but doesn't seem unreasonably high given the point of origin. If he was in the US I'd be thinking about getting some done on my cheaper basses.
     
  12. I think there is a bit too much for me. I like my basses simple.

    Well, I'm 99.99999999% positive they are off the shelf Peavy Grind NTBs (everything, even the lower horn being shaved off is a match) but they list it as a 36" scale. IIRC the 4 and 5 string Grind NTBs were 34" and the 6 was 35". Probably just a language and metric/ASE conversion mistake.

    If you get it for a cheap price, that seems to be a great deal, even if you only hang it off yer wall.

    This guy would have an incredible amount of trouble selling handmade instruments with inlays at that level of detail for such a small cost, d'ya think he would really increase production time and whatnot and make 'em 36" so even LESS people would buy 'em? Sounds like an error to me.

    *throws up*

    Not cool. Just not cool. I'm not a fan of big long inlays.
     
  17. those basses would fit great with an epic/powermetal/ and even black metal band...

    it would go perfect with "high voice on"
    <the dragooooooonnnn flying hiiiiiigh--- up in the skyyyyyyyyyyyyeaaaaagh!!!!> :bassist:
    "high voice off"
