    It's definitely worth noting that that is NOT a KxK design, it was a complete one-off custom that a guy ordered and then abandoned when it was completed.

    Did you buy it or just posting the pics? :lol:

    Just posting pics :)

    I thought I'd check out the KxK in stock page and saw it. I actually like crazy shapes like that....although that one screams Moser.

    I would rock it, if it was lefty and had more, thinner strings :lol:

    That actually looks quite nice. Maybe a bit of a pain to store and carry, but awesome. What are the specs?

    It's a customer provided design :lol: It's also ugly as hell and Rob hates it :rofl:

    On the bright side after several years the original customer finally ponied up the cash to buy the completed guitar so it is also GONE and another one will never be built :yesway:

    That's the hard part about running a creative business... Your customers will eventually ask for a turd, and you gotta put your name on it after making it the best possible turd. :3

    Yeah there was apparently a long drawn out period of begging before Rob finally gave in and built it for the guy :lol:

    It's not the most attractive bass I've ever seen, but I'm sure it's deceptive in how awesome it sounds and plays.

    I quite like the design! Maybe not as much as a Rico Jr. Vixen, which it seems to have drawn inspiration from. But I like it. Unique shapes and evil points are always winners in my books.
