    What an ugly instrument. Wish's consistent failure to do the simplest things amazes me.

    Those are certainly... interesting. I wonder how they sound... Probabally terrible. No fret board, no truss rod... Maybe if the guy actually included all of the required parts to make a bass, these might be semi-decent. Overall, fairly good for a high school woodshop project. What a waste of good wood...

    wow.. Do Wishbasses even sound good?? honestly.. and dont' comment if you've never played them... because who cares if they look like a gerbil on crack.. if they can jam.

    I just want to put on record that I admire what Wish is doing and the basses probably sound great but, some of them are just really.... off the wall, wich is i guess what makes them different. At the same time I find it laughable.... Just wanted to put those 2cents in there

    Peace :)
     
  18. Hey, we're just picking on his basses for being "different" :eyebrow:

    I find the "differentness" of his designs to be one of the few things about Wish's that I could actually live with.
