    I think the guy that bought it is now selling it. He probably ended up in the emergency room with lacerations one too many times.
     
  4. Is it just me...or is the string spacing a little...Uneven? Look at the A and D strings

    To answer the first question, he is The Wishnevsky. The second, my friend, may never be known. . .

    The bridge is also placed differently in the two pictures that show it.
     

  7. Yup, noticed that, thats the *quality* to expect for a $100 handmade bass.
     
  8. how else would You change the intonation on a solid bridge. Would be interesting to watch it walk around while U play, course then you would have to take your eye off the horns and probably impale someone.

    Taken from the auction in Mike's Ebay link: 'Very unique custom fretless bass made by Luthier Steve Wish in North Carolina.'

    Steve is considered a luthier now? What is this world coming to?:eek:

    It looks awfully neck heavy.

    We really shouldn't judge it untill we have played on it. Has anyone played on one?
