  2. I will repeat this only once- it is NOT ugly.
    The headstock is big to balance the heavy hollow body.
    Also, it was one of the earliest Shergolds and so the design you see here isn't 'final'....Hooky's 1979 Shergold has a much smaller headstock and a thinner hollowbody.


    White Marathon 6.....1984 model I think.

    I think it looks great. I'd love to have that bass, defretted and hollow as it is.

    It's relatively cheap too, but it might not stay like that.

    I would think with the big headstock and the small upper horn and light hollow-body with the bass would neck dive a lot. Maybe I'm wrong here, but that's what it adds up to for me...

    "heavy hollow body"?
  11. It's no more UGLY than some of the popular Bootique bass headstocks. I swear some builders must consider them billboards to advertise their names :rollno:

    Looks like someone took a cheeseboard and glued it to the end of the neck imho...... Not my thing but someone will love it.

    I think she's gorgeous. I'd rather have one of those in my hands than some of the hiddeous, dildo-looking, boutique basses I've seen in my time...

    [​IMG] haha.
  15. I certainly dont think its ugly.In fact if you look at it closely,theres a slight resemblance to the WAL body shape..The headstock is sorta big,granted,but that adds to its character,and makes it instantly recognisable
  16. i'd buy it..i'm a sucker for black and maple.

    Yep, it's ugly.
  18. It actually hurt my eyes.
  19. Being "Athestically Challenged" myself, I can say-without question-that headstock is ugly.
