    Saw the company advertised in the Dec. Bass Player.

    Was the wood so ugly it deserved this kind of treatment???

    But what does it sound like???? That's all that matters! ;)

    Actually are you sure it's wood - looks like the body "wings" could be made of ceramic or some kind of dense moulded plastic or that material the transparent basses are, but opaque!
     
  4. i think it's more of a thing for alternative metal.. i bet that thing looks great with a mullet and big sunglasses :D

    edit : the inlay is cool tho..
     
  5. This thing just HAS to be played by a Chinese or something .... ....:D

    I dig it. :D Doesn't look very comfy though, and the inlay's a bit too much to my taste.
     
  9. I think those basses are not for playing, but got display only.. i mean.. you'd have to be REAL deranged to go on stage with that holy-mary bass or this flaming weirdo-bass.. :eek:

    :D Yeah, Bruce - I can see Sambossa onstage with that :eek: ...... bruja!

    At first, I wondered if it wasn't some composite. But the maker says, "specializes in combining highly detailed wood sculpturing with the expertise of a master luthier"
     
  16. I think thats your basic, just because you can doesn't mean that you should..... :rolleyes:

    It seems to be the most holy of rules to bass players, why can't this luthier learn this lesson? :(

    Poor poor trees... :eek:

    I like 'em all. When they let this guy out of the asylum, they said, "Axe-murderer, guitar sculptor ... choose one." He took the high road, praise God.

    In my humblest opinion, the above may well be the funniest thing I've ever written here. ROFLMAO at myself.

    I would kill to have that fretboard inlay, but the body...that's just blasphemous. :D

    He's definitely an artist, but I can't imagine he gets a lot of sales with such a...unique product. Then again, "You only need to to sell one..."
     
  20. You need to look no futher than my signature for my opinion on this.

    And about the personal depiction of your onstage self?

    Express yourself through your music, not by your wacky, outlandish, stupid looking bass.
