    Take another look at the bass. One string is completely off the edge of the neck, and some strings are not being picked up by any pickup.
    If you sell your G&L to get one of these, you deserve what you get.

    are you sure he didn't just glue together one of his 4 string fretless things and one of his 3 string fretless things ?
    I hesitate to call them basses. well, at least in the functional sense.

    OK, so I just checked your profile, and you don't have a G&L or a Washburn. So I guess you're just trolling, and we fell for it by taking you seriously and replying.

    Boy that was funny.

    :rolleyes:

    :meh:

    I think Wishnevskys are some of the *ugliest* basses I've ever seen.

    Apparently, they don't play so well either :D

    well, <i>someone</i> is buying them.

    I wonder why though ? because they're cheap ? ugly ?

    they are so pathetic that i cannot even bust on them anymore.

    I just feel sad...

    this is a classic case of reverse engineering gone horribly awry.

    Ever put something together and have a screw left over and wonder where the heck is was supposed to go ?

    I wonder if Wishman ever feels that way when he finishes one of his beasts ?

    yet another wish thread.....before I saw JT's opinion of one on a diff thread I was bent on giving them justice....but after hearing JT's comment, and after realizing I could probably do a better job myself, I now feel stupid for defending them.

    and the prober equation is this:

    Basslab -engineering -skill -sense -coolness -skill -aesthetics -those cool knobs -hollowness -shinyness -preamp -precision........thats about it...
