    That cancels the 'smoke free environment' selling point... :rolleyes:

    Sadly not the worst relic job I've ever seen.
    I kind of like the body actually, but they lost me at the headstock.

    Wandré 'smoked' his finishes - burning was not involved so I guess they still have a lot of oxygen left in them... :cautious:

  6. If I could just figure out a way to replace the oxygen in my base with helium...

    I’ll say this: that bass has some nice low action. If he’s managed to get it that low with no buzz he at least knows how to do one thing right.

    Gotta have a chat about his finish skills though.
     
  11. IMHO the seller needs more oxygen to his brain.
     
  12. It's roasted poplar. the next big thing.

    I like it.
    And for $250, its a pretty good deal.
    If I was still near Wuuusta, I might even think about buying it.

    Burning the body? Meh. That is subjective.

    Arguing that it is an improvement? Ridiculous.
