    Kind of neat. More than I would want, but very nicely done none the less.

  3. Thats awesome and I'm not even into religion, although the more mythical side of it interests me.
     
  4. Interesting. I wonder how that would go over in my church. I would probably have a lot of old people complaining that I'm turned up too loud.

    That's what I thought, but people love my bass even more when it is turned up. Of course, I go to a more contemporary non-denominational church.

    "Worship at full volume!" :bassist:

    Um...spend how many hours doing that 400 piece inlay...then touch the rear control pannel cover before it was dry...and not take the time to refinish it.

    Hmmmm.


    I guess that's about what I've heard of Warrior basses.

    actually if i wanted a religous inlay i'd like to copy those old european paintings of crusaders in the 11th century. That would be cool. But an inlay of MIchael the arkangel....a little over the top.

    Your fellow church members, esp the pastor, would prob say that it's idolatry or heresy even. If the event pictured doesn't depict a biblical event it's plain ole' mythology and not "religion".

    Not my opinion, but my prediction. Hehehe!

    Personally I don't like it much. A plain Chinese dragon would be nice though.

    The Battle of Archangel Michael with the Devil is based in Scripture Rev 12 7-9.

    I don't like the inlay at all, really. Interesting, I suppose, though.

    And yeah, $20,000 for an instrument with production flaws is ridiculous. I wonder how much it would've been if it had been flawless. haha

    Cool idea, done in a very cheesy fashion. I think the color scheme is maybe a bit too wacky, if it were subtle earthy tones, it wouldn't look so bad.

    Sending people to hell via bass... that's kinda cool.
