    First Divinity bass I've seen. Glad to see i can crawl out from under that rock now.


    Looks beautiful.

    I've either played that exact same Divinity or one just like it down at the LowEnd. Its a great sounding bass... feels good to. The price wasn't that bad either, I considered picking it up... but i'm still waiting on my custom LowEnd 6-string to get here...

    [EDIT] So i just check it out, I have played that exact Divinity... just thought you guys should know that

    Definitely not my thing.
     
  6. Umm, while I can appreciate the skill it took to build, I don't like it's overall composition. The filler under the neck in the body looks like it's a more of a repair than an integrated feature. Just a poor choice of wood matching there.
     
  7. i've played that bass too, it's pretty amazing. i believe that's brian's personal bass, but i may be wrong.

    I like the overall design, but I think the upper horn/single cutaway is too large. It looks like they were going for sort of a symetrical wave on the top there, but I don't think it worked.

    I think if they scaled down that single cut a bit, it'd look hoss. But as it it stands, it looks almost bigger than the rear bout it mirrors.
     
  9. i can see where you're coming from. the design normally has a cut out i that spot which helps with the visual balance quite a bit.

  10. imo that second one would be hot if they took out the wood below the hole making it look more normal...

    Same here. I feel its symmetry is not that great, even though it's an original shape.

    Maybe a bit too Klingon for my taste.

    I think that particular cutout only really works with the tribal inaly scheme. However, if it was a rounder, more KL Brase in it's approach, then I think it'd work out well.

    What he said.
     
  14. That lower horn looks way too snap-off-able.
