when customer design fails miserably...
If ugly was a crime, the person that designed that thing should get life without parole!!!
Well...yes. But this is the worst customer failure.
Click here. It's a big picture.
For those of you too lazy to look, it's a SG styled 6 string. Let me repeat that, because it bears repeating: an SG Style 6 string.
Now let that sink in.
Did the guy even know what the word "balance" meant? What about "Neck dive?"
What was he thinkin?
upon second look i've decided that it looks handicapped; like one of its arms is missing !
get that bass a parking permit !
Man I hate to be mean but when I clicked on that first pic I literally busted out laughing.
The thing is though, Basslabs can at least do it with style. (Referring to the bass DonZ posted)
I love Basslab stuff. Different as hell. The C-Bow and L-Bow in particular.
Bass labs must get all the unique customers. Those are the ugliest basses I have ever seen, and that six string pictured..... woah nelly! I'm no longer young and handsome and I still would not be seen with that thing around my neck!
When I was a young boy, I told the barber I wanted a Mohawk haircut (I'm part Mohawk). He said, "I won't give you a Mohawk." When I asked why not, he replied, "If someone asks you who did it, you're going to tell them it was me."
Why on god's green earth would Dave make these crimes against nature? He should've been an attorney.
p.s. Those BassLabs ones evoke images of earwigs.
That God there are still builders like Wish who have standards!
Who was the TB'r who had that made?? I remember seeing that around here before.
That thing looks like it's shaking it's fists in the air, as if to say, "Why would ye turn me into a shampooin' turkey?!?"
Here's something in a similar vein as the one posted by Don:
Not pretty. It's supposed to be "ergonomic" (Alien-speak for "excuse to make ugly blobs"). It was made for some guy named Jim by "The Guitar Doctor" (!).
You know, if no one knew anything about DP basses, and just saw these two wonderful works of art(just kidding), they'd say this guys a moron! I've seen quite a few of nice DP's turn out. I'm becoming more a believer that a builder can't build a bass to the design of a buyer. The builder must have a design philosophy that will allow for some customer input on the result. I've heard mention that if you went to Mike Tobias about building a bass with poor wood combo's, he simply won't build it because he knows the outcome will be bad. He doesn't want to be known for building bad basses, and who could fault him for that.
Reminds me of Manring's custom Zon "Vinny" bass...
you sir are a gentleman and a scholar. this goes in my sig.
Ugly maybe, but not original. Wittman (http://www.wittman-spins.com/basses.html, maker of a cool onboard tuner and a rather odd spinning strap system) has been building basses like that for years:
yes, but are those basses <i>selling</i>?
That'll go in my up-coming book, "Bon Mots of Cone-Shaped Reproductive Organs".
Concerning the bass in the first post, I don';t know what is uglier - the amputated wing or the varicose veins riddling the bass's body.
