    Graphite reinforcement, bridge that is relatively well positioned and has string saddles, strings that remain on the fretboard, design that doesn't look like it occured after an encounter with Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre...and most bizarre of all...no Coke can around the volume knob.
    This coinciding with the swarm of cicadas...Apocalypse I reckon.
    Doesn't look too bad.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Maybe I'm being picky, but something looks......crooked? Look at the manner in which the pickups are aligned with respect to the bottom of the neck. In fact, the neck itself looks like it is *slightly* misaligned coming out of the body.

    Also, could that friggin' headstock be any bigger?!?!? :eyebrow:Oh, and do with this quote what you will:

    Well, thank GOD he's not into "weird ideas" for basses! :p
  6. It's the damn headstock he is holding out on..it's just soo...ewwwww

    Still no trus rod.

    Im sure the neck is stable enough with the graphite and massive steel bar, but what about adjustability?

    All this, and the strap buttons are standard!
  11. What's with the knobs. I mean really who looks at those knobs on anything but a Les Paul guitar and says "hey that looks sweet!".
  12. "This one was a custom, but the guy ran out of money."
    Wow! Considering his rep, that's a REALLY bad way to start the description.
    It reminds me of those scrawny lil' dudes on TV who want to be "made over" into the school team QB but it's just never gonna happen...this Wish (can we say forlorn hope instead?) reeeally wants to be a Fodera Singlecut, but without the high price and craftsmanship and stuff.
    (DISCLAIMER: the author has never actually touched a Wish, so keep that grian of salt handy.)

    Have you noticed when people who are really fat lose a little weight and people tell them that they look really good but they are still fat:confused:
