    Some of the Wishbasses have been looking better to me lately (like the Peanut/Zon bass), but this one is just terrible.

    The two strangest things about the auction were Wish's quotes, "It sounds really good due to the tiny body" and "the scale is 32 inches, but that could easily be changed." :confused: Does that mean he's willing to drill new holes in the body or something?

    Slide the bridge where? The control cover starts about a millimeter below the edge of it.

  8. without the neck, the body kinda looks like one of those marshmallow peeps you get on easter...or a rubber ducky.
     
  9. hang on a minute,

    what :eek: , since when has he had truss rods in his "basses"?

    and a customer with spacific health problems, what problem could possibly warrant that design?

    unless he's reffering to himself ;)

    Do you think it would swell and grow in size if you stuck it in the microwave the way Peeps do?

    At least the seller knows not to show that godawful string pull on the headstock.

    It could work.....it you think laminated toothpicks make a great bridge.
     
  16. i hope not. it sounds good because it's small; if it grows it might sound bad!!!




    just kiddin'. it's not possible for a WISH to sound bad!

    You are thinking too logicaly. It can be changed (made shorter) by moving the bridge towd the pick ups. He said nothing about making it longer. remember we are dealing with wishy! :eek:
