    That is a cool bass! That's a pretty ornate body, and that wouldn't be easy to build. With those sharper curves around the edges, it would take a lot of care to be able to put together. A very interesting piece.

    To my eye it is exceptionally ugly.

    I know, I know: if you can't say anything nice don't say anything. But there it is.

    I think its bitchin' but its origin is questionable.

  4. It's definitely a strange animal for sure...I appreciate the craftsmanship that must have gone into constructing it, but dare I say I'd be a bit embarassed to pull that thing out on a gig?

    Well, I think that would be for some ornate elegant chamber music type setting or something like that. It has it's looks for a reason, and orchestra is not it.
