  3. Actually, I don't mind that all that much. The color is bad, but if I can stand the colors of the Hoppus basses, I can stand this. Now, I wanna know how the thing sounds.
  4. wow.....it certainly is "WEIRD" huh?

    Actually, I don't mind it that much either, sort of like a fretless VOX, if you like that sort of thing. Doesn't look like it'd be that comfy to play, but it'd be sort of a unique thing to have around.
    If I had a hundred bucks to blow I'd get it.

    I believe that that bass is a Webley-Vickers "Spudnut"- a terrific player's bass made famous by Hendrix's first bass player Jim Shortz. I had the pleasure of grooving on one of these fine instruments a few years back. There is nothing like them and Roger Sadowsky reportedly copped a few ideas off this masterpiece...:p

    This is the third thread on the same bass. Must be some sort of a record.

    ... looks like it might come in handy if the mosh pit gets too unruly.
