    I want to see some ugly/funky/wierd/unique guitars/basses. Not the stuff on bunnybass and stuff likme that. Go to your local pawn shop with a camera, and find me some ugly stuff. JT's conklins don't cound. We all know those things can fit any of those categories. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have them all, but man. That is some wierd stuff... :D :p Nice basses, JT!

  5. i like that heart shaped bass. it's...different, but not in a bad way. it would suck to not have a strap though.
     
  6. I don't think it's ugly either. At least it's balanced, and the headstock isn't too weird.

    Gosh, aesthetics are so subjective. I think single-cut basses are frickin ugly, but folks are obviously shelling out the big bucks for 'em.

    There's an article on Daisy Rock basses in November's Bass Player. If these instruments get young girls interested in playing bass, it's a good thing.

    Daisy Rock Basses rule. The shorter scale and P style pup give them a warm, full sound.
     
  11. This is NOT ugly!

    I think this Ashbory shape is SO much better than the standard one. I'd love to own one just like that but finding one would be quite the challenge.

    Pat Metheny's Pikasso guitar is interesting.
