I'm glad I got some schoolin on them from the righteous members of SSO.
I probably wouldn't have made the KxK or Decibel connection otherwise.

There was a company that did this to Ritter. Jens went to their booth at NAMM and tried to learn who "designed" their basses. It's pretty funny.

That Ritter video is hilarious.

Maybe we'll find out one day who designed it.


These ripoff designs are incredibly sketchy though. It's definitely a dick move.

Well, apart from lifting designs from other luthiers the company looks pretty sketchy. I'd be mostly reluctant to buy from them based on that image of the B stock V they had.

Also, to answer The Norsemen's question, I think people are mad specifically at this company because they know Darren. If someone took a design from a company/luthier on here no one personally knew there wouldn't be as much of an outrage. That's why no one gets up in arms if someone makes an Iceman, Kelly, BM clone, puts a monkey grip on a guitar, etc. That being said, I think most of us are against copying designs, yet accept designs that have been around for a number of years as open for use. And then, there are, of course, people who think it's totally OK to take from someone else and have no regrets about it.

Not sure about the rest of the shape though.

Maybe a little Schecter Riot and a little BC Rich Wave?
