Would someone please tell me?
that is odd... of course the light has to hit the headstock just right for us to now be able to see the brand name...
As of right now I know I am wrong but it is "very similar" to an Ibanez BTB Series bass... By similar, I mean longer neck, longer top horn (where the strap fits on in the front) and individual bridges for each of the 5 strings. Other guitars have one saddle from which all the string fit into where the one in the photo and a BTB have separate bridges for each string.
The fret markers and tone knobs are definately different though.
What Bass Is This is essentially a Greensleeves remake.
I thought it might be a peavy millenium series but the fret markers are wrong
Naw, this bass looks nothing like the Peavy's
I tried zooming in on the headstock and noticed that there is text on the truss rod cover with what looked like a "D" as the first letter, this led me over to DEAN guitars but they also had nothing that looked like this.
see...that's why I asked. I've been to each of those manufacturer's websites and came up blank. Closest was ESP but even that wasn't it. I'm stumped!
ESP Custom B Series 5 String bass.... Key word being custom.
The bass looks just like these with the exception of the custom pickups and tone knobs and bridge saddles
The D i saw may actually be an E which would lead me to beleive that this guy is playing an ESP...
Nope, it looks to me like a Knuckle (http://www.knuckleguitarworks.com/ ), right down to the headstock. They're extra-long-scale instruments designed for low tunings...
"Debris" is also on the list of Knuckle players.
I got it...
It is from a Company called "Knuckle"
Enalrge the image you have and take a look at the logo above the neck joint... it says nothing else but "Knuckle"
Same body color, shape, pickup config etc.. .there it is
Knuckle Contemporary Silouette 5 String
Olive Green Transparent
I don't think so... The bass in question is a bolt-on. compare the neck pocket to the ESP bolt-on. They're way different.
As the two above have mentioned, it's a Knuckle bass.
38" scale length (if I'm not remembering wrong).
You can see it's a knuckle.. look on the body by the neck in the picture of the guy playing it.. it says "Knuckle"
I've never seen a knuckle before. Very, very ugly IMO
Yeah, especially when it's coming at you fast, in a sandwich.
(sorry about that... )
I've gotta hand it to you guys, I'd never guess what the heck that bass is. The closest that occurred to me is that it was some sort of customed out, Japanese ESP but even that didn't seem right. I've NEVER seen one of these things before. I can't decide if its beautiful or hideous. Anybody famous out there play one of theses? any TBers out there try one?
There's some sound clips of the mighty knuckle over at BassTasters. The idea behind this bass, is the 38" scale...
38" That's mighty.
I gotta agree. Well, I dunno about 'ugly', but it's definitely not for me.
Other then the headstock, I kind of like it. I'm not much for the jag's.
I don't think it's ugly, but it is special.
Of course, adding 4" to the scale length will obviously "stretch" the design a little, too. That's the reason it looks a little different than most other basses out there. It wouldn't have looked good if the body was "normal" with the extra 4" added just to the neck...
I like it, and think it's cool. However, I've found that I'm a 34" guy, and even 35" throws me off. So 38"... don't think I could get used to it, unfortunately. The sound is huge, though, from what I've heard.
