  8. No one seems to have a problem with the Fender Boner Bass. TB has a Boner Bass Club. Here is first entry in the club.

     
  9. Since I am on my mobile, I -at first- only saw the Bass side of the instrument.

    I was like: "It's tacky, sure but it isn't that ba- *scrolls down* ... oh..."

    I played a gig years ago and the opening band had one of those. I always thought it was pretty rad. Like a big fat middle finger to anyone who judges you by your equipment
     
  12. +1 Besides, TalkBass has a no-bass-is-ugly policy. For every person that says a bass is ugly, another person will debate/argue that point.

    You could certainly do an . . . um . . . interesting custom paint job on those if you really wanted to.
     
  14. Wow, and I thought Warwicks were phallic. Looks like something out of the yellow submarine cartoon.
