    Now, obviously these are not basses, and they are pretty ugly aside from the video screen. But I'm sure you can see the potential here for a cool-looking custom bass!

    Two things-

    1. Does the guitarist REALLY need more attention?

    2. How long before someone plays a show with one of these with a prono on the screen?

    Badass, and would work even better as a bass, as we often have bigger bodies, and our bridges are near to the edge, rather than in the middle. :cool:

    Just need to design good looking bodies.... :meh:

    Ever seen those guitars with the Korg KAOSS pads mounted in them, those are sweet. I think the guy from muse has one.
     
  9. Them Crooked Vultures played on Austin City Limits. for one song, John Paul Jones was playing some 8 or 10 string slide bass that had a spectragraph on it. looked cool, but the tone was absolutely wicked.
     
  10. looks cool but I don't fancy being that close to a mains voltage supply when I'm on stage....

    The state of denial.
    I really don't see the appeal of thALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD!
     
  13. Yes, there's a page with more photos on their website.
    The idea is cool, but those guitars are really ugly -_-

    I would not be surprised if Hugh puts one together for Bellamy for their next album.

    One of those with a touch screen and wifi connection and you could browse TB on your bass during a gig.

    Don't laugh. It WILL happen. :eek:
