Ugliest "bass" ever?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by lousybassist, Oct 28, 2002.


  1. I just found this "thing" on German eBay (i e here), and, well, I'm speechless.

    Nice touch, to have the battery compartment on the front.

    As if it matters.

    :D

    :eek: :confused:


    I don't know if that combination of smilies can express the bewilderment over that bass...

    Looks like a toilet seat with the middle left in it.

    It is a toilet seat - I've seen those for sale in shops in the UK!

    Still....it's not as ugly as many BC Rich basses I've seen in shops - and I bet it's more comfortable than a BC Rich - not so many sharp edges and pointy bits!! ;)
     
  6. It is a toilet seat, but I wanna know what is up with the paint job? Is that a custom, or did the toilet seat actually come like that?!?!

    I will never understand why people waste good bass parts on something like that. I mean, its worse than a Wishnevsky model!

    "What a piece of s***!"
    "Crappy design."
    "Butt-ugly!"

    Etc.

    I'm sure there's a joke on "speaker fart" somewhere nearby as well, but I really can't be bothered to think it up... :)

    The bass (section setting on a snare stand) is meant to be played with pencils (at least that's what the designer does) -

    That's an "off the shelf" toilet seat - as I say, there has been quite a fashion for novelty toilet seats in the UK and I have seen them almost exacty like that in shops!

    All the maker's done is glue the cover to the seat and saw straight across the part that normally attaches to the bowl - add a neck and some parts - instant "composite materials" bass!! ;)
     
  11. Novelty toilet seats, why didn't I think of that... :rolleyes:
    And Bruce, please have a look at the headstock of the above pictured "bass":

    Not as long he gives us reasons to.
    That would just be stupid. What it should to is encourage him to make better basses. Or quit. Either is fine with me.

    I've always wondered if the toilet seats they use for the basses are used??? :confused:
