    Looks more like a piece of art rather than an instrument.
  3. That's a monster.. lmao

    Looks like something you'd see in a medievil time if you ask me. I bet it doesn't have great tone! hehe

    Yeah, The Dude popped that one out to us on The Bottom Line. You forgot to mention all the autographs on it. I'd just like to know how you'd go about playing that one. I think even Gene Simmons would opt for body armor on that one.

    Look at it carefully, underneath all that fancy woodwork it's just a vanilla P-bass!
  9. IT's actually just a standard klingon p-bass... nothing special.
  10. i may sound dumb, but i think that the headstock looks pretty cool. the bass looks ugly but the headstock is cool.

    Man...you have to wear protective gear when playing that beast.. and CROZ, LMAO!
  15. well it's definately art. I'll give it that. Now, if i would want to play or, definately not, i'm too afraid. But, i have to admit, in a demented sort of way, it's art.

    Call me crazy, but I like it! It's kinda like a dragon sculpture. Only with strings. Abstract. Cool.
  17. damn, i took a closer look at that, it looks like crap. I retract my previous statement of art.
