  5. notduane did you check out the prices on those things? i think they were about 3 grand last time i saw them on the web.

    and bass_giant i have a Aria Pro II with a vibrato arm, it fun for a little bit but its out of tune after about three yanks on the arm.

    Right-o ~ $3380 for Bass or G**t*r, accordin' to the website.

    Well that clinches it! :p I want one! :D .
    How can you argue with this logic?...
    I wish these dang yahoos with BA's in Industrial Design
    would stick to office furniture :mad: (`cept of course Ned Steinberger :D ).

    Wish I had something to "bass" the sound of one of these on. The only one I've ever heard was a guitar played by the guitarist for KMFDM....... (MDFMK???) :rolleyes: whatever. I think however it was more for show than sound knowing that band.
