    Got this listing sent to me from a fellow bass playing buddy.

    7 string, Bartolini style pups (whatever that means) and onboard effects.

    Didn't take it so literally. Probably meant that it was sitting around unused.

    Always amazing what weird basses you can find. My soundman gave me a bass to check out, with the following:

    - fretless, with fretlines every quarter step (alternating black and white) - must have been done to play eastern music
    - built in synthesizer
    - piezzio pup along with two magnetic pups
    - active EQ
    - E and A strings were tapes, D and G round wounds

    It actually played nice, but just too weird and complex for me.
  6. It means they sound Italian.

    Pretty sure this was picked up on radar, flying somewhere between the red and orange spectrum of color...
  8. It doesn't matter what wood its made of. That thing is a hollow body!

    It should have a built in patch bay in case you want to change the order of the effects.
  12. I like the way you think.

    As I have gotten older, I have decided that SIMPLICITY IS BEST. Simplicity is beautiful, simplicity is elegant, simplicity is efficient, simplicity has staying power.

    That bass is a recipe for equipment failure, is probably heavy and not elegant or good for a wide variety of situations...what a complicated bass!

    Give me a simple 4, 5, or 6 string with passive electronics, a solid input jack and a symmetrical body that will stay put on any kind of stand over any complicated body with over the top electronics any day!

  16. On board effects: I'm glad to see someone finally adressed the issue of being able to switch effects on or off with your feet while your hands are busy playing.
  17. The crazy thing? Couple years from now, in some neglected corner of the NAMM Show, the owner of this beast will be there along with some poor 'luthier' who custom-built the Mk 2 version of this for him, both wondering why they're not getting any more pub than they are . . . . . .

    The case has a built-in dust generator that operates on a 9-volt battery. You can choose what kind of dust you want - generic dust, grit, ash, or the ever-popular animal hair and dander - but you cannot select what order you want them in.

    I presume he means as a hobby.

    Not sure about this “room temperature” thing, myself. I keep my instruments in one of those weird wine fridges for optimum playability.

    Wow. It kind of reminds me of an ad I saw in a bass magazine in the early 1990's. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the bass, but the ad showed a a fairly contemporary-shaped bass with multi-FX built in. There was a digital LCD screen on the side/upper horn to view banks and patches, and a selection of buttons and knobs near it to tweek the settings.
