i.e. accidentally won it on ebay
jesus christ, how am i supposed to play the fucker..
so, thoughts? condolences?
It'll be easy. Just turn it upright and imagine you're in a cool jazz band of the late 50s.
..the silliest bass I've seen in a while. But it looks like you can have a hell of a lot of fun with it.
Run it through a couple of fuzz pedals and
nah, i'm all about the smooth funk sound
perfect guitar for it really
and rock it like that levin dude.
That will make an awesome noise.
this is a bass you just have to slap
in saying that, I did briefly consider one of those twin necks from the people you got the bass from but as I have eleven guitars here which I don't play enough maybe not
i also have several guitars lying about, and only started looking on ebay for cheap ones because i couldn't be bothered taking my bass to get it restrung (which i shamefully can't do myself even after many years of guitar ownership). I ended up with this monster
serves me right really..
*not slap bass*
i was feeling a little fruity
if you love the first Pearl Jam record. Get playing like Jeff Ament!
now only a poofy hat away from being Jeff Ament :(
I will buy that off you. I'm very serious.
i've warmed to the idea now. I might pussy out and have the optional fretlines put on though
if you really want one they seem to sell quite a few on ebay for a similiar price
I hope it doesn't play like a 2x4 with elastic bands wrapped around it. You never can tell with ebay. My friend bought a electric slide guitar on there and it looked very nice but it sounded terrible.
Accidental ebay purchases can be a good thing. I won a nice amp by accident
It looks like something from the Dalek headquarters or something though.
for the overuse of 'something' :(
but i just have a good feeling about the manufacturer. And they seem to specialise in the obscenely ridiculous..
i play a 5-string fretless. it's fuckin killer
reminds me of the Atom And His Package lyric "we have a six string fretless bass, we stole this song now we rock your face"
on another note, today me and my girlfriend went to denmark street and she bought this:
