Any and all opinions are welcome......
Looks uncomfortable and ugly. I saw the piece of walnut you have, and I think it would be a shame to see it made into a bass shaped like that.
Just my opinion.
I think it looks kind of cool. You have to look for a headstock shape that enhances the lines of the body so the design is coherent. Maybe the lower horn ys a little too short to play comfortably sitting down, but I like it...
I'd like it if the upper horn wasn't so straight.
I think it looks great, Looks like something I've seen before but I can't remember where. It wouldn't be my choice if I was paying the $$$, but that's the nature of things.
Tune had a bass like that.
Looks kinds like a Manne to me..
The Tune was their Space Bass. fhodshon has one.
In fact, it looks exactly like the Space bass with the TWXT bottom.
Yup - Tune SpaceBass. Assuming whoever's cutting it can do ultra-smooth curves, it'll be money. I personally always thought that was a cool body style.
EDIT: damn, Brendan beat me.
Anyone have a pic of the Space Bass???
Do a search. fhodshon has a bunch of them.
if thats what you like, then its a good one!
my only concern would be how does it balance when you are playing it with a strap?
of course, if these guys are saying that Tune already came out with a bass like that, balance probably won't be a problem!
It looks like a mix of a Manne, a Tune, a Thumb & the Jackson 'Gravity' bass....
For the headstock I was thinking of an arrowhead type shape, kinda like some of the Alembics and Gibsons.
I could be wrong, but it looks to me that this bass wouldn't play well when you are sitting.
Tune Space Bass:
Your design is nearly identical, but squished and with a "normal" bottom. I do like them both.
i dig it but if i were you i would be weating protective glasses while playing it.
Most basses having the treble-side incurve that far down the body due to a deep cutaway (that is, that close to the bridge) tend to balance poorly when seated. E.g.: the Cort Curbows. And even if it is not too neck-heavy, it still pushes out one's reach to the first fret.
