  1. lets be honest here now...

    The Bongo and the Warwick Dolphin are my two personal contenders... unless you play in a hawaiin hoola band, where the odd shape is offset by the palmtree background, these basses are just ugly!

    They may be well made and have great tone, but come on! there are other options with the same tone...

    Feel free to give your honest opinions on any brand/guitar this is a for interest's sake post...

    Probably because the last 150 times someone started this lame thread it was closed down.

    No good will come of this... Eventually someone's going to get offended. Always happens.

  15. I thing the bongo is the uglist thing ever , though it sounds good , its very ugly , I also think that the gibson thunderbird is ugly too
     
  16. Ok, I see what you mean about the wish bass (looks like something that should be framed, not played) - but I'm not really out to bash other basses, I was more interested to get an idea of how many people are actually into these weirdly shaped basses, because there seems to be a multitude of them on supply and I was wondering if they actually sell....
