    Oh wow, you have invoked The Mothman.
    You are doomed.
     
  4. I can never tell if it's huge, she's tiny or a combination of the two

  7. Seriously, I think the Mothman bass is a piece of artwork worthy of hanging on the wall.
     
  8. Not too crazy about the bass. The stand, however, is another matter entirely.

    Just when life and gear and band stuff cruises along on talkbass, the mothman reappears. It refuses to be forgotten.
