    Modell: 5 / 151 / 52

  2. i think its ugly:( doest that bass defeat the whol purpose of a pickguard?
     
  3. Ugly?
    May be.
    But I think its a nice freaky looking, because its a pice of music history, no stuff like new ones, except the Fender Jazz ;)

    Don`t just think about pickgards.
     
  4. Looks like a perfect country-and-western bass..

    Hy-o silver.. awaaaahahahaaay !!! :D
     
  5. Western or Country, your just kiddin me, dont you?!
    I think its more like a Jazz-Bass.

    Maybe...that's because they were so ugly that nobody wanted them!! ;)

    I must say that bass has everything I dislike about basses, but I'm sure that somebody would love it - like ugly babies!

    The first bass I ever had was quite rare, but it was also really crap - I've never seen another one and I'm very glad! ;)
     
  9. It's a dreadful looking thing IMHO. Still, if it's rare and worth loads of £££££££ and someone gave me one for zero £..........:D
