    That style definitely lends itself more to 6 and 7-string basses. Looks cool-probably hell to balance in a stand. The Raptor style lends itself to four and five-strings. Look how sharp this one is:

    Ritter designs are unique and that's a very good thing in my book. Sure, I like the traditional look too, but how many more Fender clones do we need??

    I think the Seal looks fine as a 4/5 banger.

    I'd love to get my hands on a Ritter or two.

    I'd rather be seen at jazz gig with a heart shaped daisy bass.

    Those Ritter's have pretty unique designs, and I've heard nothing but good things regarding the quality. But I prefer the Okon to the Seal model.

    I just read the interview w/ Jens in the TB newsletter.
    Very interesting, he's a great guy. Seems like most luthiers are though.

    Glad you liked the interview, Xush! :smug: Jens is a really good guy and has a lot of very interesting things going on with his basses...fretwork, bridge, body styles, strings, etc. You name it, he's redesigned it!

    Introvox-if you're interested in learning more about Ritter basses, give Brian at The Low End a call. He usually has a couple in stock and I'm sure he'd be happy to answer your questions. If nothing else, they're certainly unique! :D

    I think they are heinous. Maybe just me though
     
  19. OR...How many more gratuitous shapes from the Play-Doh factory do we need before it's finally obvious that their shape is their only REAL difference.

    Unless they can't sit in a stand, in which case, they would be less useful than a Fender clone.

    :bag:
