    Sorry, I don't get it... I think that bass was posted because it has its lower horn chopped off... but I could be wrong... fretless instruments (defretted or originally fretless) are super cool to play, and hard also...

    ^Fretless is cool, but the prior owner's decision to only fill & clean-up frets 13 and above add to the jank factor.

    hadn't seen that... maybe this was a test shoot before committing to the whole treatment? maybe he ran out of supplies and had to go for a gig...? To me the funny thing keeps to be the cut out lower horn that brings the bass to a questionable aesthetics choice, hence silly and in plain right to be posted in this thread...?

    I remember that photo/meme of the mic'ed head (not cab)... I'm sure that it was a joke of some sort that turned out into a stupid meme. I mean, there has to things like that, people taking stupid photos just for the laughs and someone else catches it on the net and distorts it into something like "red neck intelligence"...

    Ibanez Lonestar series.

    If it didn't have the yellow logo, I wouldn't hate it, as I have no arbitrary "has to be a 3+3" headstock mentality. But with the yellow...I hate it. Ha!

    It does remind me of these, though:

    Yeah, it certainly made my day better. I had seen Danny Tanner holding it, but never with that look on his face. Even he appears confused by this guitar's existence.

    Huh, I don't really associate Primus wit, except when he plays upright bass, but that's not most Primus songs.

    The Rainbow bass is fretless, which is what you hear on Jerry Was A Race Car Driver, My Name is Mud, Tommy The Cat, etc.

    Huh. When I saw them he played all those songs on a fretted bass.

    Edit: Or maybe I didn't realize it because it has fret lines!
