    Well, as usual, to each his own......but not my cup 'o tea.....I guess it would have fit right in back in '67 or '68, though...

    By the look of that bass, it is not very convincing. The photo shows it is very rusty. Definite sound bad
     
  3. I think its awesome


    and it seems really well done. I mean, its chipped, but it looks professional.

    Its even got the yellow submarine glove on the back!

    If it was a fender, I'd buy it, start a psychedelic band.

    its cool, I just dont like the headstock. kinda ruins it for me
     
  5. I think it looks great, headstock notwithstanding (too '80s for me).

    I like it...I'd probably change the neck. But I really like it otherwise.

    (I agree to frankenbass)
     
  8. Looks like an Ibanez neck on it, but I don't know of any Ibanez basses with string through body from the 80's.

    I love it!

    But the first thing I'd do is pull that neck off and put an SX replacement neck on it for $40. The old neck would go on eBay. And I'd probably have an artist friend of mine try to match the body artwork on the headstock. Groovy.

    I would have chosen different colours and put a fender neck on, otherwise I think it looks pretty awesome.
     
  11. I think it would burn with a bright flame.

    sexy...
     
  13. I love it especially that part about "RARE VINTAGE PSYCHEDELIC ELECTRIC GUITAR BASS GROVER". Somebody spent a lot of time on this back when.
     
  14. +1. They missed out on the submarine itself, though. Could have put it where the strings go through underneath and use the holes as the portholes of the submarine. Oh, well.....

    Not particularly well executed, but visually together. Semi-pro artist at least. I love it. Love the wear and tear. I'd keep the neck. It's got that cool blue color. Somebody loved this bass. Says a lot to me, but then heck, I was there.

    This part I have to disagree with...Cheesey parts basses, although far rarer in '67 than NOW, didn't fit in then, either--IMHO. Especailly true for '68!!! :D
     
  18. I'll take it!! Just add a couple of Bassman 150's side by side or a big blue Kustom and we'll all be ready for that magical ride on the Yellow Submarine.
