    I think the Parker Fly Bass is hideous, but I love the guitar. I think some Wish basses are actually pretty cool, you just have to get over your preconceptions of what is "normal", and think outside the box. Some of the highest end basses are ugly looking, especially melted tops. I also have yet to like the Bongo; it has yet to grow on me as it has for so many others. I think most Foderas (all but one or two) and many Alembics look kinda gross too.

    OK, this is weird . . . this is the perfect thread to give the URL for BunnyBass ( https://www.bbmia.org/ ), which for years has had a photo collection of the most bizarre basses in existence, some beautiful, some hideous, some just plain pathetic.

    But now it looks as though they want a paid membership before you can browse the archives, and to top it off when you click on the link to join up, you receive this puzzling response:

    "We are no longer accepting subscriptions."

    So, I am mightily puzzled. Anybody from BunnyBass a member here? Whassuup wit dat?

    Bros' I have played that Jerzy! It is the sickest bass around! I would give both my pinky toes for that bass! Any takers?

    The tone, feel, fit and finish are all outstanding! Could be the best exotic bass I have ever played!

    The only thing between me and that bass is $7,000.00.

    Rice and beans anyone? I'm cooking!
     
  12. The cat seems to be really freaked out by the bass... and I don´t blame him... :spit:

    The Drozd is a real beauty though.
