  1. I think no!
    Bad example to sell the bass quickly!
    IMHO!

    They can make any claims that they want, but nobody has to bid on their auction. I've never heard of Madden before. Anyone know who this builder is?
     
  4. They say the maple has a very nice flame to it, I think the flame is pretty bad and shouldn't even be considered a flame top.

    Both the $5000 and the $6000 have one too many zero's! And it is STILL butt-ugly!

    Yah.. it does kinda remind me of a Glaveston, but the craftsmanship looks better. Assuming it played nicely and the top had more than a very weak or nonexistant flame, I could see someone paying $1000 for it, but definately not over ebay...
     
  9. I don't like the layout of the controls. They are stacked too close together. :spit:

    What's the point in having that long, long upper horn if you're gonna put the strap button way back in the middle of it? It's a great idea to add an extra half pound of wood on the wrong side of the strap - if you're actually trying for neck-dive.........
